No idea what these are, but I found them in Kew gardens yesterday. A700 with Min 200mm f2.8 plus 1.4 t/c





I'm guessing one is male, the other female as they were a pair. Any ideas?

@ ianmarsh,

I think it's called Guinea fowl - I think I saw similar birds in South Africa.
What do the specialists think?
regards,
Bernd

I agree with Bernd, he looks like a Guinea Fowl to me too!

It was a stunning day today (except for the smell of smoke in the air) so I had some fun shooting some of the backyard locals!

@ianmarsh: these birds are indeed guineafowls which are nearly always monogamous. Probably these are of the type called the "helmeted guineafowl".

In the Netherlands they are kept also (they do not live here free!) and are called: parelhoen (literally translated into English: pearlhen)

Rosie

The first three seem a bit "light"; the last is spot on for colour depth, and a nice shot, like the one above.
