Sunday with the Chimpanzees

December 12, 2009

Sunday tends to be a quiet day in the forest, as many of the Ugandan field assistants attend church mass. So, today – Sunday – I went to the forest alone to just sit and watch the chimpanzees on my own. No data collection, no stress – just observing and photographing. It was great. There’s a huge fig tree (Ficus capensis) fruiting right now – so it was easy to find a group of chimpanzees. There were 4 chimpanzees already in the tree when I arrived, and during the few hours I was there 8 more chimpanzees turned up. It was a wonderful morning. Below are some of the photos I took:

Also - Richard says he wants to see more bird photos. So here is a photo of a Black and White Casqued Hornbill that I took today:
