I'm going to describe another lifer I saw that weekend @ Rietvlei. Let's see of you can tell me what I saw:
I saw it on the ground, it looks almost like a lark but it had a yellow rump (I think that is what we call the stomach) and an orange throat. They are about 15-20cm tall.

Which breeding female lays two eggs and the first egg is laid three to five days before the second. Since incubation commences with the first egg, the chicks hatch 3 to 5 days apart. The older chick may weigh 250g by the time the second hatched chick hatches, at about 60g?.

I will give it to you OWN. :thumbs_up:

"Ground Hornbills nest high in large trees with sizable cavities and in holes on cliffs. In 80% of clutches, the breeding female lays two eggs and the first egg is laid three to five days before the second. Since incubation commences with the first egg, the chicks hatch 3 to 5 days apart. The older chick may weigh 250g by the time the second hatched chick hatches, at about 60g. The eldest chick always out-competes its younger sibling for food and the younger dies of starvation within a few days from hatching

A Southern ground hornbill can live up to 50 or even 60 years.
A juvenile has beige facial skin up to about two years old. The skin then becomes mottled with red and blue spots. The facial skin will be entirely colored at about four years old".
