lmao Duques, I hear what ur saying, a few years ago my family and I were in the Kruger and just outside of Satara we spotted a Honey badger next to the road while minding our own business and taking in this rare sighting in broad daylight our thoughts were immediately forced to pay attention to a young Elephant Bull that came charging toward us Trumpeting and going ballistic, we got a frite, the honey badger got a fright and to this day I am PETRIFIED of the mere sighting of Elephants, I endure it because my kids and fam love them but me, well lets just say that the dashboard and I make aqaintence in that time period :redface: , I love birds and I do look for the baby five but ive got to say my cats my cats my cats .... welllll theyre my beautys :lol:

Lmao Cheetah It does sound Hillarious but its true that day I climbed into the back window of my dads Mercedes I was so scared, my brothers completely forgot about the elephant and packed up laughing at me and then he just kept mock charging us which made it worse, I am extremely wary of elephants I have full on panic attacks just seeing them, naturally my family laughs themselves sick at me everytime but ja I say rather a careful Jan than a Dead one :naughty:


As for a TR yip I will do that and hopefully by that time Ive learnt how to post Pics onto the site lol :cam: :hmz:

@cheetah: i haven´t said that i was disappointed with the S100. :wink: We had a lot of interesting sightings there but we didn´t see any predators.
We were just unlucky with Satara when we were there - we have been driving to each direction without seeing any predators.

@Sheenaugh-Lee: i will cross my fingers for your next trip over your birthday. :thumbs_up:

Shenaugh-Lee - Duques is a wise man!!
I discovered birds very recently and it has changed our visits for ever.
We still love looking for (and seeing) the bigfive, but birds add a new dimension.
Also the small five is very interesting.
Finally I was once told that the bush will reveal to you what she wants you to see!!

All that aside, will hold thumbs for you ijn August!! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

I do agree with you Micetta. but they are small and not impressive :lol: So far I love seeing raptors and storks and the big birds. but their are countless species that are small and it is overwealming for me to try learn the types. I have been trying to some extent but I dont get very far :?

You must join the Birding School for Ducklings :wink:

There are lots of middle sized coloured beautiful birds :dance: :dance: Just think of the satisfaction of recognizing it. You don't have to be a "Mad Birder" to enjoy the bird :wink:

Micetta is so right!!! :dance: :dance: :dance:

I only started an interest in birds in Oct, and with a bird guide and 2 trips to Kruger I can now identify many birds. I still need ID help sometimes, but mostly I can do it myself. :thumbs_up:
