Orange River White-eyes visited our camp site

Staying at the Sendelingsdrif Rest Camp next to the bank of Orange River on the boarder of South Africa and Namibia is a pleasure. Lot of birds, beautiful scenery.

Several orange river white-eyes (Zosterops pallidus, eteläafrikanrilli in Finnish ) visited our braai, clearly used to safari campers. They were intrepid small birds following keenly what we were doing, waiting that we would leave a piece of bread for them as well.

I will post every week “Thursday Twitters”, pictures of birds mainly from
Finland and Southern Africa, occasionally also taken elsewhere.
The source of the text is most likely Wikipedia or similar online article.

    I like these tiny creatures the most of all birds. They look and act with such self-sufficiency. They seem so intelligent, so quick, so alert, with perfect vision and yet are so small. The bird on the top of the post exemplifies all of those traits, and looks incredibly cute as well. But I imagine the insect it’s eyeing doesn’t think it’s cute. A lovely shot.
