wild guineas (General Discussion)
I have just returned from a trip to Cape Town where a friend of mine lives on the edge of a nature conservancy. A lot of wild guineas pass through his property and he feeds them, but they are wild. He has no idea where they sleep, lay their eggs and so on. But they pitch up regularly for feeding (two separate flocks) and in the last two days, with 15 sweet keets. I took a couple of (bad) photos because I had forgotten how very bright the blue of their heads is (as opposed to the sort of silver bluish grey of the domesticated ones like I have). But what I hadn't realised is that their wattles are blue too, with just the tips red. My birds' wattles are all red or red with bits of white. Does anyone on the site have blue wattles?
Carl, I battle to upload to my computer as I never seem to have the software loaded, except the upload to FB button on my phone. If I upload them to an album called 'wild Guineas' on my FB page, would you be able to move any decent ones to this site? Horton's wife is quite a sh*** hot photographer so I have asked her to mail me some of her much better photos and will try and upload them somehow.
