Hi Sneeugans . Nice pics :thumbs_up: Much better than I could get with our local breeding pair of Hadedas - their nest high up in a bluegum tree :evil:
Is that the first clutch for this season :hmz:

P.S Don't be put off by JvR - Actually , we are namesakes , but don't tell him because he does not know it . :naughty:

This pair of Hadedas bred twice , in different trees , this season since August last year , and now it seems they want to breed again - starting to renovate the first nest they used last year .

The first image of them on the lawn , and the other two images , sitting in tree , preening their feathers .

They might annoy all the dogs in the neighborhood, and make a big noise on takeoff, but there is something beautiful about this bird...

I agree with you Leeukos. A handsome bird with a loud call and exude confidence. They even put my pet cats in their place! I always enjoy watching them.

Interestingly - our pair of Hadedas started building a new nest this week in the same Eucalyptus tree where they nested last year and raised 4 youngsters . They seem to have chosen this as their winter/spring home - the nest being built on the leeward side of the tree , away from the northwesterly wind that we get in winter/rainy season.
