Red bill and yellow eye

Red billed Oxpeckers
Thankfully we see a lot of oxpeckers on safari. I say thankfully because it wasn't too many years ago that they were in dangerous decline due to the toxic dips used by cattle ranchers on their domestic herds.
However the cattle dips are now oxpecker friendly (in the main), not only for the benefit of wildlife but also the animals they serve such as the buffalo pictured.
