Some Birds of Western Cape and Cape of Good Hope

From the archive: No trip to South Africa without visiting Cape of Good Hope! The cape gull is endemic to Western Cape. On March 15, 2011.

Nikon D5000, ISO 200, 200mm, f/10, 1/320.

We didn't expect to come upon the common ostrich at Cape of Good Hope, but these seemed to like the views.

The Western Cape has its very own crow, the cape crow.

In South Africa, the oystercatchers are deep black.
