These striped caterpillars were devouring this plant
Some sort of tinker barbet (yes BirdLife treats the african barbets in the toucan family which sort of bugs me)
need to figure out which of the 'sun squirrels' this is
yes! so common in Tai you almost forget how spectacular these guys are
I could be wrong here, but they were in noisy little groups like the African babblers I've seen, sorry for the bad photo
couldn't get a good picture of these little flitty canopy birds with red tails
feasting on this poor little plant
need to look this one up
widely sold as escargot in markets, its really bush meat
need to ID this guy
one of the only common birds in the understory
One of the guys helping me catch frogs could do this great trick where we'd turn off our flashlights and he'd make this grunty call and when we turned the lights back on , one of these would be attracted right next to us.
Found in the forest during the day. Tentative ID based on a similar critter pictured here:
(Thanks to Mark-Oliver Roedel for the ID)
This is the one that got away because they jump like crazy. Lots calling around a puddle after the rain, must have tried 1000 times to catch one.
