This is the national bird of South Sudan. Here are some other interesting things to know about South Sudan:

  • It gained independence from Sudan in 2011.  It is the newest country in the world with widespread recognition. Kosovo is newer, but not as widely recognized.
  • The capital city is Juba, which has about half a million people.
  • The President of South Sudan is Salva Kiir Mayardit.  When he visited the US in 2006, he was given a black Stetson hat as a gift from President George W. Bush, and he liked it so much that he bought several more and rarely makes a public appearance without one.

I heard that Salva Kiir Mayardit likes to Google himself. Yep, that’s what I heard about Salva Kiir Mayardit, the President of South Sudan.

“South Sudan” sounds like a fascinating country, filled with wonderful people and headed by an honorable man, who is named “President Salva Kiir Mayardit”!

African fish eagle doesn’t look much like a fish.

Fun Factoid: President Salva Kiir Mayardit has a flock of Fish Eagles.
Each bird has ‘Property of President Salva Kiir Mayardit’ tattooed on it’s beak.

The picture is funny if you imagine him scootching his butt on the carpet.

Wait… Dave’s dog is a Fish Eagle?

@Retired Geezer — Shouldn’t a bunch of them be called “a school of fish eagles”?
