Of course, I fully understand that.

Funny thing is, my first ever Pel's sighting required no effort whatsoever. Drove to the Fig Tree forest in Mkuze, got out of the car, crossed a donga, and there they were. Two of them. It was a cinch, took not even two minutes, and back then I had no idea that it was a special sighting. I saw Pel's before I saw most other southern African owls.
