Wild birds of sub-Saharan Africa - Eritrea (2)

African Darter (紅蛇鵜)
Eritrea (1997)

16th December, 2010. Asmara

Continues to show items from Eritrea, a maxicard features African Darter, it is rear to use grey-scale postcard in my collection, and it was published in 1958. Darter also a common waterbird in sub-Sahara area, as known as Snake Bird, it breeds closely to the colonies of Pygmy Cormorant (侏鸕鶿) and African Sacred Ibis (埃及聖鷺). And of course, its diet is fish but as the body of darter doesn't have oil, the feather waterlogged after diving for fish.
