My husband took these lovely bird photographs while we were on safari in the Serengeti. We don’t know what they are called- any help would be welcome!

This lovely little fellow got into the truck and helped himself to my Pringles.

These birds rushed the truck every time we pulled into a picnic area- they are persistent beggars.

This little guy followed us around all afternoon, with some of his friends, desperate for cake. He was actually sitting on my foot and hustling his little heart out. This behaviour wasn’t lost on one of the game wardens who warned us several times not to give in to the begging, “They eat termites” he growled. All the animals, from the largest gnu to the smallest bird beg for food at all the picnic spots. The birds will even fly into the car and steal bags of chips.
