More time at the Maansour hotel

On July 22nd I flew out of Somaliland. I had time in the morning for some birding around the hotel. There were no new species for my country list though I did manage better photos of several birds. Notably I got better photos of both shining sunbird and variable sunbird. I got my only pictures of northern crombec in country too.

The last stop of my East African trip was Djibouti. I will blog about that country next.
