[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am currently working as a teacher in Madagascar so this is an excellent oppertunity to photograph some of the varied endemic flora and fauna of the island. I havent got a bird book here so im struggling identifying species so all help is appreciated. Here is my first attempt and what i think for sure is a fine example of the Madagascar Kestrel (F. newtonil) perching on a pine tree in my garden.
