That is also a big elephant in the background.

According to Roberts VII, there are an estimate of 250 Secretary Birds in the Kruger National Park.


Interesting that! I seriously doubt there are more than 50 in KNP - maybe only even 20-30 if that. Would be interesting to no for sure though!

Looks like he needs a visit to the stylist for a comb and blow dry!

Today, while driving north to Punda Maria from Shingwedzi, we came across a Secretary Bird and a Tawny Eagle walking side by side through the bush. It was the oddest sight! :shock: Neither one seemed to have made a kill, and both wandered together for over a half hour, before getting far enough from the road that we lost sight of them.
