The top bird was in the Serengeti (1-21). The left 2nd row bird was seen on Lukuba Island (1-14); the right 2nd row, at Speke's Bay (3-13), courtesy of Paul Oliver. The other photos were taken on Lukuba Island (9-10), courtesy of Valéry Schollaert. Click the female to see 17 enlargements including a nest, juveniles and immatures.
