The wetlands of Africa include some of the most impressive birds and congregations of birds in the world...
Anas undulata, 'Yellow-billed Duck' (Lake Victoria, Uganda).
Actophilornis africanus, "African Jacana'.
Bostrychia hagedash, 'Hadada Ibis'. This species is take for granted, as it is common and noisy even around towns; but at the right angle of light it is a stunningly beautiful bird.
The Shoebill was until recently considered and called a Stork, but recent genetic evidence suggests it is more related to the Pelicans (and Hammerkop).
Balaeniceps rex, 'Shoebill'. A large and bizarre looking bird. Restricted to African wetlands and quiet and scarce. However, there are tours that target these birds.; see Places to see African wetlands.
