We had more visitors during the day

This baby kudu was all ears trying to listen what we were saying

On the other side of the river we saw this eagle in a tree. I think it's either a buzzard or hawk -O-

Can you spot him -O-

This side of the river we noticed this vulture enjoying the sun. Hooded vulture -O-

Then the very friendly cleaning guy that was busy next door asked me if we saw the owl in the tree. He dropped everything and said follow me

He walked straight to the tree and showed us the owl. It's not the best picture but at least one can see the owl. African Scops owl -O-

ID again please

Next episode: Leopard vs Buffalo
Next trip to the bush??

Let me think......................

The raptor is very difficult to see, but from the colours I'd say Juvenile African Fish-Eagle -O-

Yes, the vulture is the hooded one :yes:

The owl is a southern white-faced owl \O :-0

Cute little kudu ^Q^
