Crows on a roof, Arlington Heights, Illinois Woodpecker, probably female (Arlington Heights, IL) What are these birds looking at?? (Masada, Israel) This superb starling gave me a penetrating look! (Serengeti, Tanzania) These guys were so well camouflaged, I almost didn’t see them! (Serengeti, Tanzania) Storks hang out in an acacia tree at sunset. (Serengeti, Tanzania) I’m sure I’ve posted these lovebirds before, but they’re so cute!

Great collection of bird images 🙂
What an awesome collection of birds! I hadn’t seen your lovebirds so thank you for sharing on Bird Weekly. You captured some odd looks from perching birds. The Superb Starling’s look was priceless! Looked right at you like, “what are you doing, lady?” I, too wonder what those birds were looking at in Israel. Any idea what kind of birds those camouflage birds are?
I used to know – I had written down the names of all the birds we saw in Tanzania, but I don’t remember anymore!
I think I found it. D’Arnaud’s barbet. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%27Arnaud%27s_barbet
Oh I think you’re right! Thanks for that identification!
Yay! You gave me the hint as to where you saw it. Pretty easy from there. 🙂
