← Back to Working for Water: The Bangweulu Wetlands and Africa’s Shoebill…

“During the foraging observations we made in April and May of 2012, we often saw two shoebills together. On the left we recognise Bwalya, you see the GPS-transmitter on its back. On the right is a bird we called Zorro, thanks to a scar on its forehead in the form of a Z. These two birds often foraged in each other proximity and occasionally they would acknowledge each other and show some social interactions.”
