Question
You are on a drive along the S100, you stop to admire a grey go-away-bird (grey lourie) which is calling in a tree above the river bed (go-away, go-away). You are intrigued so you turn of your vehicle and listen. You hear a deep, rather quiet "umph-umph-umph" noise. You recognise this well known predator as a)......... and know that she uses this noise to b)...............

:hmz:

Good luck everyone :thumbs_up:

Thanks Dirk ;)

Name the common garden bird which is responsible for waking many of us up with its loud call ;) This bird, now common across most of South Africa, was once limited to only the coastal regions.

I know ;) But this was particularly easy so I didn't think anyone else would have anything to add or would disagree... Sorry about that!
