Ethiopian Mammals.

Here are some of the animals we saw in Ethiopia. There is not a lot of big game left and big cats are few and far between, but they are there so in some areas we had an armed guard.
The Ethiopian Wolf was what everyone wanted and we saw 3 or 4, they are beautiful.

Ethiopia, Part 3.

This is the last of the birds from Ethiopia but I may get around to doing some mammals later in the week. There are a lot of endemics in Ethiopia and we were lucky enough to see some of them although sometimes they were difficult and not easy to photograph. The Turaco in particular stayed well hidden for most of the time. The Stresmann's though posed very well and they were very loved up. Lastly, the Sidamo Lark just would not stay still so it's not a great shot but as it's one of the rarest birds in the world we were pleased just to see it. Sue
