Kenya has over 1,000 bird species, including migrants. My portfolio of bird images has been compiled over several years, having visited many National Parks, private ranches and through extensive travel.

Both common and uncommon birds of Kenya are featured here, each photograph attempting to display the bird's natural habits, rather than simply standing still, or perched.

The dimensions of each bird are of the upper size for an adult male bird, from the tip of the bill, to the end of its tail.

The birds are a joy to see Simon, so beautifully photographed. Birds that one would love to be able to see let alone take photographs of them.

I love the Yellow-billed Oxpecker also the sunbirds that you have a made into a superb collection .

I am very envious of the gorgeous birds , you are certainly blessed with them.
