Fabulous action, Jan. :thumbs_up: The little bushbuck looks very sweet to us, but must be big and scary for a Thick-knee. I have seen Thick-knees in our area be very protective. They make a hissing sound that sounds almost like a snake.
The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.

Poor Thick-knee doesn't know how gentle and kind a Bushbuck is, but will definitely protect the nest. Great sighting and brilliant picture Jan! :clap: :clap:
