Senegal Thick-knee ,Burhinus senegalensis.

These are nesting on one of the government buildings opposite the Nile river  near Karnak Temple.
Nile valley Sun bird  I have waited one year to get a decent photo of this little male bird
taken with my new Canon ef 100x400 lens  at about 60ft distance  been better if  he would have kept still.

A nice collection of birds. Is that a canon lens?

That sounds like a great lens Tony and this is a great shot with it. It is always nice to get something new.

wow...what a beauty that sunbird is...worth the wait for a good shot! The other bird is neat, too. You are seeing some great birds since you moved.
