I realised that if I had to choose, I would rather have birds that airplanes - Charles Lindbergh (1902-1974)
There aren't too many exotic birds aroung where we live, with the exception of the flocks of parakeets that have made the South of England their home; and they don't stay still long enough to get a decent photograph. Also, having a cat who prowls around the garden doesn't encourage many of the smaller birds to stay, although I do have a robin who frequently visits, especially if I'm digging.
So, here's my offering for this week's Hunt, from last year's holiday in the Gambia - the first a very friendly chap who used to wake us up by banging on the bathroom window in the morning and the other one of the many little birds scratching amoung the very colourful flowers and bushes in the gardens.
