Widowbirds



This is a flock of widowbirds in the Abyssinian Highland. The birds are not common there and this was the largest group I have seen in two years. Breeding males have long black tales that gives a fascinating image when they fly.

  8. Hello Christian... I love your blog and your love of nature. You will give me the opportunity to visit a part of the world I will probably never see in person. These birds have tails kind of like our swallows..beautiful..Michelle from Nature Notes..
