Slate-coloured Boubou 111117 Laniarius funebris

The Slate-coloured (formerly Sooty) Boubou is normally a shy bird but in the grounds of the Sarova Mara they have become accustomed to people. This is one of a pair that sat on my boots (I was wearing the boots at the time!) as I was sitting outside our tent at daybreak. It was a bit frustrating waiting for them to move far enough away for me to get the whole bird in frame.

 

Mara, Kenya.
