Description: As soon as the Tawny came to the waterhole, the turtle doves flocked there too. I saw this several times - when a raptor was at the water, huge flocks of potential prey birds joined it. Why? I saw a Tawny catch a dove at Polentswa (ob still to come), so its not like they're immune.

Description: Too far really to get good pics. Juvenile raptors are difficult at the best of times, so not sure we'll get a definitive ID for this one. Then again, maybe someone knows this nest (southern arm of Marie se Draai) and to whom it belongs... The eaglets' eyes are yellow, if that helps at all...

The head plumes that wave in the wind are the silliest thing I have ever seen (even sillier than a mouse cunningly disguised as a weaver).

Description: I was photographing a pair of Spotted Eagle Owls outside our house early in the morning. The male owl swooped down to catch a small springhare (Pedetes capensis). What happened next was too fast for me. What I thought was a Lanner swooped down from nowhere and grabbed the rodent before the Owl got to it, and the chase was on. The female owl was quick to join in, and the threesome ended up in the schoolground cricket nets, where the Raptor dropped the prey, but watched over it. Attempts by the male owl to get to the prey were thwarted by attacks by the Raptor.
