face-to-face of a buffalo with a yellow billed oxpecker. Ticks and other insects are removed by the oxpecker. Oxpeckers leave no crevice untouched, and will even work their ways into their hosts ears and nose to remove parasites. In addition, the oxpecker will eat diseased wound tissue, keeping wounds clean as they heal. Oxpeckers also  alarme their host - who is a prey mammal - to potential danger.⁠

Watching the interactions between the yellow billed oxpecker and the giraffe is beautiful as they share a symbiotic relationship! The birds feed on the insects, ticks on the giraffe and are seen together quite often. The moment where the oxpecker tries to reach the heights on the giraffe when the giraffe looks down to spot it was a frame to freeze!! #giraffe #wildanimals #wildanimals #masaimara #masaimarakenya #savethegiraffes #oxpecker #endangeredanimals #animals #kenya #wildernessculture #wildlifephotography #wildplanet #wildlifeplanet #kenyanwildlife #conservenature #birdsofprey #birds #sustainablenature #wildlifeperfection #wildlifeaddict #wildlife_vision #igs_africa

Superb timing by @howard.cleland to capture the water and a red-billed oxpecker hassling this giraffe! The neck is, of course, the standout feature of the giraffe. Perhaps surprisingly it contains the same number of vertebrae as a human’s neck but the bones are simply much larger. What is different is that the giraffe is unique in having a dense packing of blood vessels at the base of its skull that regulate blood flow into the brain. This is needed because a giraffe has a huge heart (60cm tall!) and high blood pressure to push blood flow all the way up the neck, but when the animal drinks, gravity would cause a major overflow of blood into the head - the special blood vessels step in here and stops the giraffe from fainting...!

Not always everyone’s favourite bird, vultures are in fact a crucial part of the ecosystem.

This hooded vulture is the smaller of the vulture species we see here, and are often the last the feed at a carcass. They always provide a bit of entertainment as they bravely approach lions to try and steal a tasty morsel. ---------------------------------------------------

Not long ago this year this beautiful Rhino 🦏 was standing just 2 meters in front of me during my journey through South Africa. Now it helps us collecting money for endangered animals in Africa as 5,- € from each purchased Zebra 🦓 and Rhino TShirt are going straight to organizations working against extinction. Currently we‘re still collecting for buying protection houses for highly endangered African Penguins  #everypenguincounts #africanpenguin #fairwear #tshirt #instastyle #tshirtdesign #tshirtdesign #stopextinction #savetheworld #berlin #handmade #safari #africanwildlife #oxpecker

Perhaps the member of the Big 5 who spends the least time in the spotlight - the Cape Buffalo - is one of the most abundant larger herbivores in Africa. Their constant companions, the oxpeckers, help to remove ticks and other insects and will also alert their host to the proximity of potential predators.⁠ Photo: @sam_thenomad⁠

TLC is what these birds will give you, that's if you're carrying snacks for them .
Oxpeckers will hitch a ride on almost any furry friend that carries ticks, they get food on these animals and in return, these animals have had a free pest removal service .

El cuerno pulverizado de rinoceronte se utiliza en la medicina tradicional asiática como cura para las más variopintas enfermedades: desde resacas y fiebres a afrodisíaco, y últimamente, incluso se habla de él, como remedio para el cáncer. Eso ha llevado que se cace a las diferentes especies hasta extinguirse o a estar muy amenazadas, sólo por su cuerno. A mi me parece despreciable. En África en muchos paises ya hace años que se hace verdaderos esfuerzos para protegerlos. Tenerlos cerca IMPRESIONA muchísimo ️. Y tuvimos muchos . Son enormes y preciosos y uno de los big 5. El de la foto es un rino blanco en Swazilandia. Los que vimos en Sudáfrica no tenían sus dos cuernos porque los veterinarios aunque vivan el libertad prefieren cortarse los para protegerlos de los furtivos. Es tremendo llegar a esos extremos. 
Por cierto esos pájaros con esos picos rojo pasión son bufájidos .

yellow-billed oxpecker

Part of the beauty of travel is in the novelty of discovery, knowledge and experiences it gives.

6 hrs bike ride + 45 min hike (from Gembu) finds us in this semi-wilderness. Gangirwal, the Mountain of Death, we have come to ascend is still a very long way ahead even if it deceptively appears easily within reach.

The disappearing path leads into a herd of Mambilla cattle. And on some humped bodies are these vivid billed and eyed oxpeckers. Startled by human presence, they hurriedly take cover behind their host, and peek, shortly after which they resume their dedicated service of fly and tick removal. Curiousity had a good hold on one of them, and I took advantage of that.

A pleasant encounter and surprise this was for me... but a scary reminder that I was farrr away from home, where only egrets are known to be associated with cattle!

This weeks Friday Feature is another exquisite photo from @danieljcoxne!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“This yellow-billed oxpecker is hitching a ride as he searches for ticks on the back of a Masai Giraffe. I absolutely love these colorful birds. Back in the mid 90's I did an assignment for National Geographic Kids magazine about how these gorgeous birds were being affected by a pesticide being applied to cattle by the Massai to kill ticks on their animals. The downside is it was also killing the oxpeckers. I'm not sure if the government eventually banned the pesticide, but I do seem to be seeing more oxpeckers than in the past. That's a good thing. I shot this image with the #LumixG9 and the #Leica 200mm F/2.8 with 1.4X teleconverter. That's a 560mm F/4 full-frame lens equivalent.”
