Photospot: Congo Peacock and Shoebill

p 42

For birders intent on seeing a really difficult species, Congo Peacock gets close to the top of the list. It is possibly reasonably widespread in deep equatorial rainforest in eastern and central Zaire, but that does not make it any easier to find! Shoebill may be easier to find than Congo Peacock Afropavo congensis, but the young bird that frequented the Maasai Mara in Kenya for several months late last year ended a long and at times eccentric hunt for the species in Kenya.
