Mattib and JJ,

Its not the correct question. According to my sources its a different bird. It seems as if there are difference between tribes on what bird the "lightning bird" represent. Look at the second answer as well to get the question right (Indlamadoda). In Zululand the name indlamadoda was given before the 20th centuries due to these birds feasting on fallen warriors after a battle.

You will see the same thing happening in Kruger nowadays, but its now only dead carcasses. :roll:

Mattib,

Not the correct bird :cry: It is a raptor gliding with min flapping of the wings like a acrobat. A camp in Kruger is named after this bird :wink:

Ossendryver,

The bateleur is the correct bird, which is referred to as indlamadoda in Zululand during the 19th century. :thumbs_up: You are IT :clap: :clap:

There is an interesting thread called "Bateleur" under birds showing the behaviour of the Bateleur. I thought it will only feed on small mammals and not on carrion and was quite surpriced by some of the photo's.
