East Coast Boubou
AKA Zanzibar boubou.

A common but shy bush bird that's found in much of coastal Kenya and North East Tanzania. Shot this picture very very close from home.

Happy (or try to be) Monday everybody!

The Opus page seems to be redirecting to that of the Tropical Boubou. But for those of you interested, this is the correct Opus page. :eat:
A lovely clear portrait of this handsome boubou, Mustafa.

Thanks for pointing out that error Mustafa, I've now corrected it. I'm guessing there was a split of species at some point.

You've a fantastic picture of this boubou my friend. Many thanks for showing him to us. I'll upload the picture to The Opus shortly.
