Red-billed Oxpecker

Buphagus erythrorhynchus (Stanley, 1814)

The Red-billed Oxpecker (Buphagus erythrorhynchus) is a passerine bird in the starling and myna family Sturnidae; some ornithologists regard the oxpeckers to be in a family by themselves, the Buphagidae. It is native to the savannah of sub-Saharan Africa, from the Central African Republic east to Sudan and south to northern and eastern South Africa. Its range overlaps that of the less widespread Yellow-billed Oxpecker. Source: Wikipedia
