the birds of Kenya

From the small and colorful, to the large and powerful, Kenya’s incredible variety of birdlife transformed us into amateur bird-watchers. It didn’t happen overnight, however, and by the time we started keeping track of the birds we had seen, most of our safaris were long behind us. These slideshows — which include the 150+ different bird species we’ve been able to photograph — are just the tip of the iceberg of Kenya’s avian diversity.
