A male seen on the S93 road between Olifants and Letaba. He was calling (I assume for a mate), and was so loud we had to pull our windows up. But it was an awesome sound to hear :)

We were quite excited to see this one in September, somewhere near Letaba. Difficult to photograph with all the bobbing to and fro!

Excellent pic. Showing perfectly why it is called Red-crested.

Very rare indeed! I've been birding for many years and never seen the red crest. They only show them while displaying. Lucky you!!

Thanks Lizet. Yes it was! So glad I was able to get a record of it. I had no idea it was SO rare to see this, so we were very lucky indeed! :D

Yes, you may recall a few years ago someone submitted a video to 50/50 showing this display and it was the first time in birding history someone recorded this behaviour. It was the overall winner for that year.
