Au fil des eaux ougandaises



Une promenade en bateau ou canoé permet toujours de s'approcher des oiseaux sans trop les effaroucher. Ici, je vous présente parmi les plus grands rencontrés.


Larger birds of Uganda along the shores

A leisurely boat trip on the waters of Uganda allows a better proximity to wildlife including birds.

Pélican gris - Pink-backed pelican
Pelecanus rufescens






Pélican blanc - Great white pelican
Pelecanus onocrotalus




Une Mouette rieuse passe en volant alors que je voulais photographier le pélican:
A Black-headed gull flies in as I wanted to take the pelican:




Jabiru - Saddle-billed stork
Phippiorhynchus senegalensis
 




Bec-ouvert africain - African openbill
Anastomus lamelligerus




Les escargots sont leur mets favori:
Snails are their favourite:







 


Palmiste africain
- Palm-nut vulture
Gypohierax angolensis








 Marabout - Marabou stork
Leptoptilos crumenifer






Buffle d'Afrique
- African buffalo
Syncerus caffer








Cobe de Buffon - Ugandan kob
Kobus kob

Immature male

Female and cub
Mère et petit


Cobe defassa - Waterbuck
Kobus ellipsiprymnus




Et lui, que je ne présente plus, un magnifique mâle qui prenait du plaisir sur la berge:

Varanus niloticus
 

Je rajoute enfin ce magnifique Varan du Nil de près d'1.50 m qui passe devant moi alors que je photographiais des oiseaux!

And finally this superb Nile monitor about 1.50 m in length who passed me as I was 'shooting' birds, keeping a close eye on my mouvements!







 

Blog en pause, je vous souhaite de beaux clichés pendant ce mois d'avril!

Away again for a while, I wish you great pics during this month of April!

  2. Dearest Noushka,
    What a great post about the different large water birds of Africa.
    If you look at all the different big 'tweezers', closed or open for easily handling snails, it is amazing how nature functions!
    Love the large animals you captured and how special to even spot a 'Varan du Nil'. In Dutch we also say Varaan.
    Have a safe trip!
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  6. Coucou ma Noushka, tes photos sont si belles qu'elles en sont émouvantes. De belles découvertes pour moi et j'ai adoré les photos en noir et blanc. Moment de tendresse entre deux buffles et l'éléphant qui s'éloigne. Amusant le si petit oiseau perché sur les cornes de "l'immence" buffle.
    Bon voyage et belles photos..
    je t'embrasse

  8. Those are all spectacular birds, Carine, even if not the prettiest! Your mammals are wonderful, but the real treat for me was the monitor - I'd love to see one!

    Have a great trip and take good care. With my very best wishes - - - Richard

  10. Hi Noushka,
    Wonderful varied post with super images, the Saddle-billed stork and African open bill are such unusual birds.
    I managed some decent images of the Palm-nut vulture myself some years ago, and always good to see Buffalo and Elephants.
    Have a good trip.
    All the best, John

  14. Everytime I see your pictures of Africa it brings back memories. Alle these species I once have seen there so you can imagine I liked to see all these great pictures.
    Have a good time during your journey.
    Greetings, Kees

  15. Hi, Noushka! You, as always, have captured some wonderful photos. That male elephant was magnificent and would be something to see in the wild. I think a 1.5 meter monitor would creep me out. Terry and I have pretty much decided to move to Nevada, just outside Las Vegas. We've been traveling back and forth house hunting. So far we haven't landed one ~ missed out on three. Travel safely!
