Climate change is altering the range of North American birds, insects, etc. Expect the same is true everywhere. We have to pray they can adapt fast enough while waiting for our governments to take this thing seriously. OK, off my soapbox.
I really enjoy your postings.

Great story and wonderful pics Adam!

Not unusual for them to be more visiable at this time of the year and would be attracted to the prospect of more food around an area of human habitation in the midddle of winter. We have the same situation here on the South Coast, the only time we see them is now at the end of winter. Wound looks pretty old hope he (blue eye rings) recovers !

The Narina Trogon is flying around in the Klaserie Valley in abundance. I have had numerous sightings along the river forest. The first one I ever saw was in the Zambezi Valley near Kanyemba. That was a rare sighting. Now I get to see them almost daily.

Wonderful! Please wait there till we arrive in Sept!! Only seen one ….. ever! That was in a sand forest at another camp and we knew it was special when we told Richard Anderson our ranger and experienced his excitement at what we had seen.
