feathery characters

by | Dec 24, 2006 | South Africa, Travel

One of our favorite places in Cape Town is the World of Birds in Hout Bay. During our second visit, we spent about three hours enjoying the company of a variety of birds…

In one of the aviaries, a hadeda ibis took a liking to my shoes… he protected his find when others walked by, including a German lady who let out a hearty shriek when her toes were nibbled! Thankfully, mine were protected.

This cast of characters were among the hundreds of birds we saw—an eagle, an owl, and a stork. I’ll get the specifics later when I go through all my shots of informational signage!
