I spotted this little Stone Chat perched on a twig next to the beach road. #stonechat #birds #birdsofafrica #birdsofinstagram #birdsofig #ornithology #beachwalk
It took me a while to ID this one.  Does this really look like a stork?  It is a Marbou Stork from Africa found at the Brevard Zoo. . . You can see more photos like these and even purchase them by clicking the link in my bio!.

The stunning Lilac-breasted roller (Coracias caudatus)
I never put much thought into why they're called Blacksmith Plovers until a few days ago - I heard this guy going "Ip! Ip! Ip! Ip!" And it kinda does sound like a blacksmith hitting an anvil 🤔 #birdsofsouthafrica #birdsofafrica #blacksmith #plover
Day 55 of the #100dayproject & the star today is the Red-crested Turaco (Tauraco erythrolophus) from Angola. This African bird is one of a few turaco species with a red crest, & stands approximately 40-43 cm (16-17 in) in length. It has a white face, red crest & bright Crimson flight feathers which must make it a spectacular bird to see flying! The red colour of its crest is apparently attributed to a pigment possibly unique to turacos! These birds are fruit eaters found only in Angola, & are distantly related to cuckoos, sharing several features with them...including foot structure... which I am becoming more & more fascinated with, as this project goes on! They have 2 toes pointing forward & 2 backward! I'm still exploring these new alcohol markers & have definitely found that paper choice is key. I thought I'd grabbed the same slick paper I've been using for the past couple of days, but very quickly realised that I hadn't...as I watched the inks being rapidly absorbed into unintended areas! Well, you have to be pragmatic about it, it is only a drawing, one of one hundred to be precise, so definitely shouldn't feel precious about it. Ink spreads... deal with it... move on! So, on that note, it is what it is, & here's to tomorrow & another sunshiny day! #100dayproject #100daysofbirds  #birdsofinstagram #birdaday #bird #birdsofig #birdsofafrica #birdart #drawingbirds #redcrestedturaco #turaco #angolanbirds #birdlovers #markers #sketchbook #dailysketchbook #couldbebetter #colourful #colourfulbirds #naturelovers #natureart #naturalhistory #naturalhistoryart #wildlifeart #day55 #artteacherart #cuckoofamily #birdsoftheworld #birdoftheday
