Agreed!!

If they were serious, they'd go after a Pel's AND NT... Anyone can find a Pel's, they are after all territorial. You ask the right people, and voila!! Come on girls, I thought you said its a "challenge"

;-)

And this deafening silence.... Can you hear the "gekonkel" in the background?? Obviously deciding whether they are "brave" enough to take on NT as well......

As a great musketeer once told me .. they will be known as the ASAP Team (Almost saw a pels) ..

But if this is almost serious .. I would not expect anything less then the challenge that the Duke Pack had .. Finding 1 elephant of significance (or similiar case) over an area stretching from Croc Bridge - Tshokwane in 3 days, living only on the great tasting meat braaid by an expert such as my friend Lomar. Living in tents occupied by 3 men each .. (Sorry Lomar .. I'll pay for the consultations with MM) :wink:

And the cause should not be for their shopping spree in Sandton City :twisted:

Maybe they should go and search for "Oortjies" :twisted:

I hear about a challenge but until now saw no proof. As Loams said no challenge in Pel's.

Maybe this picnic should be come a challenge and they'll have to find Pel's, NT and Racket-tailed Roller

Ok, Musketeers, The A Team have had a pre-ops briefing and decided to put you lot out of your misery ;)

It took an angel to come up with a great proposal!

Diannet – lets show the Duke boys how to really run an Operation, lets go search for something far more elusive than a large old ellie, lets go and search for an owl, a Pels Fishing Owl!!

Jay - Our Stiffneck angel is the perfect choice to lead this adventure! She will ensure it is done in a scientific manner and that our findings can be of use to the serious birding community.

Gwen - We need someone to take care of nutritional requirements of The A Team, it takes a special angel to offer to fly from Holland to do this!

And to ensure the mission runs without a hitch we have;

Wanda
admin
Rene
DB


So, we can only but succeed at

Operation Pels!

Ok, so you are looking for a Pels....... As my esteemed Musketeer brothers have said, Where is the CHALLENGE?

How difficult is it to ask a guide to go show you where the Pels is hiding?

Come ladies, you are surely capable of more than looking up the same tree for a few days?
