The bird quizzies are busy at the moment, so I will ask one in the open quiz.

Which family of birds tend to lose the power of flight more readily that other families of birds? More than a quarter of all living or recently extinct forms are flightless.

Philip1 and onewithnature :thumbs_up:

From Prime Origins guide to best birding in Kruger

Quote:
The Lesser Spotted Eagle has been dubbed by National Geographic as the ‘distance champion of raptors’. One bird was tracked on its four-month southward migration from Poland to the Lebombo. It left Rostock in northern Germany on September 21, 1997.
It reached the Bosphorus on the edge of the Black Sea on October 5. Ten days later on October 15 it was tracked crossing the Suez Canal. This represented a fairly leisurely flight from Europe into the Middle East.
What’s interesting is that it put on the speed through northern Africa, taking about a month to fly through Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania before it was recorded on the edge of the Great Rift Valley in northern Zambia (Nov 16).
It remained in Zambia for six weeks – probably picking up condition after its rapid journey through east Africa – and crossed Lake Kariba into Zimbabwe on January 3, 1998. It was recorded in the vicinity of Gonarezhou two weeks later, where it remained for two days (Jan 18 and 19).
It eventually took up a nesting spot in the Lebombo Mountains on the Kruger border with Mozambique on January 23rd 1998. It departed northwards four months later
