This bird was photograped in the Postberg section of the West Coast National Park in 2005

Oct 2008. This pair kept us entertained outside our cabin in Golden Gate - the Highlands Mountain Retreat camp. They had a chick with them.

One partner of The Highlands Mountain Retreat resident pair. We saw them all over the Blesbok Loop though.
