Birds in Africa for Photo Friday
May 6th, 2011
Amie from Ciao Bambino
Of all the animals we saw on our family safari in Africa … guess what interested our 8-year-old the most? Believe it or not, it wasn’t the lions — even when we were lucky enough to see a kill in action.
Surprise, surprise. Birds are extraordinary in Africa and come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. This is part of what captured our son’s interest, but the other factor was the challenge of identifying birds in bird watching guide provided by AndBeyond.
Some school age kids do much better sightseeing (or animal-seeing in this case) with a bit of structure that engages them in the act of observing. This is true for museums and city tours too.
Sadly, I can’t remember the names of each of these birds … any ornithologists out there?
