Where's the Rest of My Family?

Species: Helmeted Guinea Fowl | Location: Serengeti, Tanzania

Helmeted guinea fowls are normally sociable—where you see one you will usually see others. This one seems to have lost his way as he perches atop a rock looking for the rest of his kin. These birds are found across sub-Sahara Africa and live off a diet of insects and seeds.
