Its beak looks like it could be, but I think the bird is too big. Someone with more knowledge that me will do better than me. :thumbs_up:

It looks like these ellies have annexed the watering hole for themselves and refuse to move from there. Some really majestic tuskers in between the bunch there!

The shape of the reflection looks mongoose, but ithe legs look long. Don't know what else it could be though. One of the bigger mongooses maybe? :hmz:
