Birds of Kenya, California, Arctic and France!

These Guillemots share a narrow place on the cliff in the Arctic
but they can rest on any iceberg
2 Arctic Terns (Sternes) with different colors of bill rest in California
 court a female in the Arctic

they fly the head down to see fish
This Crested Grebe (Grebe Huppe) fished a crayfish(Ecrevisse) in the lake of Annecy
It is different from this Western Grebe couple in Berkeley
A happy Cormorant caught a fish at the Berkeley Marina

The Lilac Breasted Roller (Rollier a long brins)

This Cinnamon Chested Bee Eater(Guepier Montagnard) holds in his bill a bee it has killed by banging its head
It has to squeeze the venom out and remove the stinger(dard) before eating it
The Crested Hoopoe (?)
The majestic Crowned Crane (Grue Couronnee)
a Snake Eagle (Circaete brun)with yellow eyes..
