Yellowbill, Liwonde, Malawi
Frank, one of the guides at Liwonde National Park was determined to find a Pel's Fishing Owl during my 20 hours in Liwonde last week. Well, the owl had not read the script but I was not complaining when Frank spotted this Yellowbill (Green Malkoha) in the depths of a sausage tree. Difficult to see and difficult to photograph I was delighted with the prolonged views of this individual as it foraged slowly under the canopy. I think the owl is seen at Liwonde about 20 times more frequently than the Yellowbill... ...so I'm happy to leave that until a future visit!
