Off to Roost

Off to Roost_2018_07_29_1926

A line of Helmeted Guinea Fowl dashing off into the sunset, kicking up dust and on their way to roost. This social bird is well distributed across Southern Africa, usually found in both grasslands and broadleaf woodlands. Chicks are referred to as ‘keets’ and during the breeding process it is not uncommon for eggs to be dumped in another female’s nesting area for incubation. The original African ‘chicken’, known to have been bred by the Romans as a source of food and eggs.

Marabou

Marabou storks always remind me of the resident magistrate, cloaked up and ready to deliver judgement! These birds are endemic in the Mana Pools National Park, as with most game reserves, but more so in the north of Zimbabwe. It is a scavenger living off game kills and can sometimes be seen outside its usual habitat near abattoirs and refuse dumps.

The Hamerkop is mostly seen near water and they are avid fishing enthusiasts, recently witnesses skimming the water, much the same as an African Skimmer.
