Kenya Jan 2017 Birding Trip Report Day 3

We had a full day to explore this incredible birding habitat and we were not disappointed. We had great views of a number of skulkers that include Brown and Scaly-breasted Illadopsis, Grey-winged, Snowy-crowned, Blue-shouldered and White-browed Robin-chats, Brown-chested Alethe, Equatorial Akalat, White-tailed Ant-thrush and Red-tailed Bristlebill. Greenbuls were keeping us busy and we got Kakamega, Slender-billed, Yellow-whiskered, Toro-olive, Cabanis’s, Little grey and Ansorge’s. This is great place for Sunbirds and we ended up with Collared, Green-headed, Green-throated, Bronze, Olive-bellied and Eastern Double-collared while Stulman’s Starling was a highlight. This is the only location in East Africa where you can see Blue-headed Bee-eater and we had two wonderful walk-away sightings!! Black and white casqued and Great Blue Turaco are two birds that never fails to impress while we had good sightings of Gray-throated, Yellow-spotted, Hairy-breasted Barbets, Buff Spotted Woodpecker and Thick-billed Honeyguide. Other interested birds we saw include Black and white Mannikin, Black-crowned Waxbill, Grey-headed Negrofinch, Brown-capped, Forest, Vieillot’s and Black-billed Weaver, Chapin’s Flycatcher, Eurasian Blackcap, Banded Prinia, Black-faced Rufous-warbler, White-chinned Prinia, Olive-green Cameroptera, Black-collared Apalis, African Blue Flycatcher, Angola Swallow, White-headed Saw-wing, Square-tailed Drongo, Bocage’s and Lühder’s Bush-shrike, African Shrike-flycatcher and White-headed Wood-hoopoe.
