Photos of birds and monkeys from our balcony

Just thought I'd share some of the photos taken form our balcony here in a regular apartment complex in Nairobi!

 Some beautiful birds chomping away - I think they're White Casqued Hornbills?

And of course our all-too common ibis, the Hadada Ibis 

And of course there's some vervet monkeys (click here for more)

And my favorite shot for last: WARP SPEED MONKEY!

Visiting the elephant orphans at DSWT in Nairobi

Just two quick videos from a recent after-hours visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.  As a disclaimer, these elephants receive visitors 1 hour per day this way, and then 1 hour in a more public setting. Click here to learn more - DSWT is awesome!

Chatting with Ziwa at her apartment at dusk:

And just observing a warthog doing his thing!
