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).
Balearica regulorum, Grey-crowned Crane (Bigodi, Uganda). The national bird of 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.
Ploceus superciliosus, 'Compact Weaver' (Bigodi, Uganda).
