Thanks Val! Just love spending time with the birdies!
Great mug shots to be put on file.
As for the eagles what can one say. At least they were building a home for the new generation to be born.
True, Sparrow, but what will these Eagles be teaching their young - probably to continue in their criminal ways...
I was quite extatic to catch these eagles in the act!
Thanks for your compliments!
Thank you Kaapsedraai!
I tell you - those sergeants were there all the time allerting me to the presence of the grootkokkedore...
Great work by them to alert me to this rare sighting!
Great sighting of the mating martials and I already was fascinated how you could discover that the martial was a "she" but whilst scrolling down now I know the reason
Cute three banded plover on top
I try to be a great investigator, but if it wasn't for mr M Eagle, I would've had no way of telling it was a she!
Beautiful photos all of them
Thanks for sharing
Thanks for the compliments manicwalker!

Those talons have been covered by many an innocent victim's blood I tell you...
Maybe even some of your own kind, Ms Mouse...

Well - that Eagle should be flattered by your suggestion!

Absolutely can't believe you saw mating martials!!!
I felt very lucky to come across this great piece of evidence myself!
I’ll start with an confession, each morning whiles I have been waiting for my train to arrive, I have been reading your TR on my phone. I was unable to send replies, but I have finally found some time to do this at home.
I love the way you are righting this TR, 10 points for originality.
Your scenic pictures are breathtaking, absolute stunning pics.
Your morning-mega-mafia lion sightings is the best sighting I have seen on this forum
, the morning glow on those beautiful lions is amazing.
Great buffalo pictures, the powerful and the young…
A LIT, but how rude that she didn’t come down for an interview, would have been funny to watch, seeing some fireman trying to get this scared kitty down.
What a great nightdrive, 3 civits and great to see the difference in behavior of the lions during the day and at night time.
Hope your luck continues!!
The evidence has been seen even as far as the trains of the Netherlands!
I do feel flattered!
Thank you so much for all the great compliments, t-bal!
And stay tuned - more evidence to be revealed...
If you're a Martial with plans of extending the family - you better be sitting on strong branches!
Had rapidfire on those guys during "the act"...
No lovey-dovey couple can escape the investigation of detective Bushbuddies!
But yet - somehow those badgers evaded my
... I will just have to return!
