Observation details

Indescribably beautiful bird found two in the afternoon on walk back to camp. First seen in flight with small white wing flashes. Thought it was a coua. Then landed and ran along a trunk. Unbelievable! Got lots of photos. Then got the second one bouncing just up hill from us. Again wonderful views. Heard the deep booming call as well. Eventually they bopped off and I got distracted by some little brown jobs. Mind-boggling. Hope I find some more!
