Default African Birds

I am looking for African birds that I can add to my diorama. The animal replicas are mostly Schleich. I have flamingos, little parrots, pelicans, vultures (kinds big as they are Papo), Marabou storks (Noahs Pals) and regular storks, and or course ostriches. Any birds of prey out there that would fit the scale--even if they are in flight!?

thanks for any help. I think I remember those Chinese ones that you put together (mini animal puzzles) that may have had them. I got my kit fox from them.

These are Southern bald ibis


I also have some saddle billed storks and waddled cranes




I had Ana make some palm nut vultures and bearded vultures




there are several more, guinea fowl, secratary bird and a few others, but that is no

There are a few that were made by a Japanese artist, the hornbill and the ibis are the ones I can think of off hand, but he is retired and his sculptures (he only did scale models of birds) have become very expensive. The others were done by me, Ana, and another artist but I can't remember his name right now but he only did 2 of the ones I have.

I forgot to mention, I also have helmeted guinea fowl, I will try to get them out of the box and post a photo of the pair in the next day or two.

Are you sure Playmobil cannot help you? Playmobil made a lot of wild animals and I think they made vultures and ostriches.
