Yellow-billed Oxpecker

Buphagus africanus Linnaeus, 1766

The Yellow-billed Oxpecker (Buphagus africanus) is a passerine bird in the starling and myna family Sturnidae; some ornithologists regard the Oxpeckers to be a separate family, the Buphagidae (Zuccon, 2006). It is native to the savannah of sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal east to Sudan. It is least common in the extreme east of its range where it overlaps with the Red-billed Oxpecker, despite always dominating that species when feeding. Source: Wikipedia
