Helmeted Guineafowl or Bush Chickens.

Helmeted Guineafowl (Numida meleagris)

Today I should have stayed in bed instead of going for a walk with the camera. I managed to capture the feet of some birds and the bodies of others, and very few good photos… however I did get a few presentable ones of the Helmet Guineafowl… but I should still have stayed in bed….

Our Bush Chicken is common throughout South Africa, and some run around peoples houses as pets or domesticate chickens… they are fairly noisy when they want to be… they always seem to be in flocks… and when the one starts to make a noise the others all join in..

I think this bird has been exported half over the world. So common here I feel I’m posting photos of chickens…




Looks more like scales than feathers…..



As they scratch away looking for food …..


Today is just not a good day for photos… I feel a bit like a total beginner as though I’ve forgotten all that I have as yet not learnt…
