Aw!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: You are so lucky Bushmom!! They don't occur where I'm from and have to be one of my favourite parts of being in camp in Kruger - very entertaining little birds!

I see them often here in town. they are (to me) the most beautiful "garden-bird" -Birds that come visit your garden. I'll often tell my family, I've seen my bird again today - as if they belong to me and as if it's the same bird visiting. hahaha
