  1. Awesome gallery of photos! I had to look up your forgotten bird. Southern Ground Hornbill??? Thanks for the hint as to where you took it. I love the Blacksmith Plover! So regal in black & white! 🙂

    • I think you are right about the ground hornbill. I had identified all the birds I took photos of but didn’t keep a record of it somewhere, so now I have to start over! I found a website of Tanzanian birds but there are so many that the only hope is to know the bird’s basic category (e.g. hornbill, ibis).

      • I’m always looking up birds. Until I created this challenge, I was getting to know the birds in the US only. Now I’m getting familiar with world birds thanks to all you awesome bird nerds like me. 😎
