Description

Our first morning at Shamvura we spent a lot of time doing bird ringing with our host, Mark. While we were checking the nets I came upon a small flock of these francolin walking through the bushes, scratching at the forest floor and eating stuff. I tried to herd them in the general direction of where our nets were, but they didn't fall for it.
