Egyptian Plover

(Pluvianus aegyptius)
A stunning bird, high up in the candidate list for the title of the most beautiful bird in the world. These photographs do not do justice to the bird having been taken in very dull flat light conditions in deep shade. Photographed by the river near the Campement du Buffle Noir in the Benoue National Park. Other birds were found at the Benoue River bridge just outside Garoua giving more distant views.
