Actually , we were very lucky . Our grand-daughters , aged 10 and 6 years , had spent the weekend with us , and my SO had just left with them about 15 minutes earlier to take them home , when this huge brute pitched up . It just about scares me brainless just to think what might have happened if the kids had still been in the house

Dunno about the Phalaborwamaniacs... :roll:

But it was genuine sighting!

And a first for where I grew up!

At this time of winter a lot of weird birds fly into Pta for food!

On the weekend in Umbilo,Durban i saw a breeding pair of Purplecrested louries collecting nest building material. I stay in Fynnlands on the Bluff which is near the harbour and every day see Fish Eagles or hear them calling.At first light some mornings i also hear Francolins calling but not sure which secies it is.At night a pair of Eagle Owls are often hunting in our area

Recently we've had a pair of grey hornbills at the bird feeding tray at my dad's house almost daily :hmz: , in the Broadacres area.

I thought it would be interesting to see what birds and bees and other wildlife people see when they look out their windows. Even in cities there are so many biodiversity these days...

Looking (and listening) out my office window right now, I see a small flock of Cape white eyes (glasogies) fluttering around in the crown of a large white stinkwood tree (Celtis africana) that have only sprouted it's new leaves in the last couple of weeks. A pied crow is calling flying past, croaking noisily and a cape robin (gewone janfrederik) is calling from the shrubs....
