Oldupai Gorge

Oldupai Gorge in Tanzania is famous for the discoveries that furthered our understanding of early hominids. It lies on the Great Rift Valley that runs through East Africa. Here are the birds that I found near the Oldupai Gorge Museum.

134. Great Sparrowhawk (Accipiter melanoleucus)
This had perched on one of the boards near the entrance to Oldupai Gorge.

135. Common Bulbul (Pycnonotus barbatus)

136. Vitelline Masked-weaver (Ploceus vitellinus)
This one is the male of the species. The female is here.
