This little chap kept diving, disappearing and then popping up a few meters further along.

Played with the filters and Mr Crested Barbet popped out of the photo.

This is what the crested barbet looks and sounds like. Sorry for the jumping around. I didn't have the tripod.

The weavers are back and swinging into spring in the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens (and my garden too ;-))

She's on the lookout for a handsome husband :D)))

Going through my photos and am delighted to discover more photos that I thought were lost forever when my computers got stolen.

I totally forgot about this "bird tree" when I decided to treat myself to couple of days off at a guesthouse not too far from home.

There you go +Xabier Ostale. G+ made a couple of animations of the red-faced mousebird for you. You can see how dizzying they are. At least he stayed on the same branch for these shots.

It only took about 35 snaps to capture this beautiful feathered friend. Moving birds, wind and a handheld camera made it really hard but I must say I am proud to share him with you.

Thanks to +Dilip Mundkur who has identified him as a Black-Headed Oriole.
