Hello all,

Finally got it the pics figured . Many thanks to Jan van Wyk. This big-boy came cruising by with a reedbok ? in it's jaws. I was there with friends who were impatient (go figure kookoo), so I never saw what happened after.

Grey Herons feeding baby. We were in Kruger in Nov 2010, and Dec 2011 and both times they were there with a new chick.
