Wild Guinea Fowl

Hey Dylan,

Not to try and rain on your parade, but that doesn't look at all like a 'guinea fowl', it looks like a high quality (and fine table fare) grouse!

All the Guinea Fowl I've ever seen are wonderfully colored in a blue tint, bald heads (like vultures/turkeys, with even a bit of neck skin hanging), and their bodies are really dark blue/black with white spots.

Were you using a tripod?

Thanks and great pic!

Hi there N

Everyone seems to call them Guinea Fowl - so I just assumed!

Will def check

No tripod used - hand held

OIS definately works!
