Stresemann's Bush Crow: Photo Essay

Possibly the ultimate avian prize in Ethiopia?

Stresemann's Bush Crow.

The Stresemann's Bushcrow (Zavathariornis stresemanni) is only found in a very small part of southern Ethiopia. It is currently thought to be a member of the corvidae, but this is by no means certain, as it behaves very much like a starling or myna.

I saw it both feeding on the ground & feeding on the backs of goats. It seemed to be closely associated with these semi-nomadic herders & their domestic livestock.
