Rare and elusive, the inconceivable Shoebill is a bird to behold. The only member of it’s family, and found only in a handful of African wetlands, this giant-sized wader looks prehistoric. On our recent tour in Uganda, we found this odd-looking target bird with a humongous bill shaped like a clog, at Mabamba Swamp – one of few reliable spots in the world to see it standing motionless amid the papyrus and reed beds, searching for lungfish, eels, or baby crocodiles!
