Senegal Thick-knee (2 of 2)
Gambia River, Niani, The Gambia
Very different markings from the Spotted Thick-knee, shots of which are posted prior to these. They are much more confiding birds too and ubiquitous along river banks. Out of the ten species of Thick-knee, this bird - along with the Water Thick-knee (which is not found in this part of Africa) - it is the only Thick-knee to live near water.
