Where did you spot this one? It is on my wishlist, and I have been traipsing through forests to see it!
The natural world is amazing - showing the hand of an awesome God.

I have probably seen this bird a hundred times (no not that particular one, silly) and just dismissed it. I must really take notice of pigeons & doves and add the outstanding ones (like this one) to my list.
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".

I also saw an African Olive Pigeon (formerly a Rameron Pigeon) so keep a look out - the yellow bill gave it away for me. :thumbs_up: This was the day after we met for dinner :)

Great that you got to see the Little Crake :thumbs_up:
