Birds in baobab trees

birds in baobab trees

Photographer Vanessa Bristow has wonderfully captured these different birds perched in baobab trees in Zimbabwe.  Featured here are a Marabou Stork, an owl and a pair of Bennett’s woodpeckers busily pecking away (the female below the male). As Vanessa says of her photographs: ‘They are in humble tribute to a mighty tree! Baobab’s provide shade in summer, beautiful landscapes in winter, not to mention great picnic spots, comfortable seats, steady perches, homes for owls, insects and birds, places for giraffe to hang out in … a wonderful, arboreal celebration!’
