When I'm lucky enough to be in Victoria Falls I'm often up early out and about in the bush, birding and photographing my way around. The other morning, much to my surprise, I found this little fella, a lone lovebird, near to the Big Tree along Zambezi Drive. It is very likely an escaped bird, as many have been kept in cages by local residents and escaped over the years, although they are rarely seen. The only naturally occuring species, the black-cheeked lovebird, is extinct in the local Victoria Falls area.
