"Here's looking at YOU"
A Peral-spotted Owlet casts its beady eyes in our direction
See if you can spot what I saw in the tree...
A Glossy Starling
These Red-billed Ox peckers are hitching a ride on the back of a Rhino
These Cape Turtle Doves are often ignored.
They are as common as Impala that suffer from the same fate...
photographers looking for something more "exotic".
The male was intent on courtship, but the female was having none of it.
"Oh well, if she is NOT interested, I'm off"...
A Baboon with a Lilac Breasted Roller
No, my wife is NOT wearing a gas mask.
Just coated binoculars...
A Yellow billed Hornbill
A Grey Lourie (Go away bird) at dusk
This Purple Roller was all fluffed up to get some extra warmth
It seemed to be the wrong season for Lilac Breasted Rollers,
as I saw very few...and the couple that I did see where in the wrong light.
This Pearl spotted Owlet is much smaller than this image.
Not much bigger that a budgie.
A Chinspot Batis trying to keep warm.
A Blacksmith Lapwing patrolling the edge of the Jamala waterhole
This is the Red crested Korhaan, also known as the Suicide bird
because of his mating display behaviour.
Guess with machine I wrote this posting on.
I was able to find information about theses species
by using the books in the library.
