I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Sunday bird blogging

Helmeted guineafowl in Chobe National Park. 

They looked so odd sitting up in a tree that I had to take a picture; usually you see them in big flocks on the ground, running in panicky unison then whipping around and running in the opposite direction. They're beautiful in their ungainly, silly, wobbly way, but not creatures you expect to make it off the ground for very far or very long. 

But I imagine that in Africa every creature that can learn how to climb a tree does, no matter how foolish they might look in the process.
