One time after brushing through the tail of my horse I found a nest made completely from the bright red hair that had been removed. I don’t know what bird had made it. I found it on the ground after a storm. Perhaps it wasn’t a good choice for building material but it was interesting.

I love these bird posts mixed in with the Big Five! Kate what an amazing moment captured of the “female paradise flycatcher building her nest”!

While staying at Singita Boulders at Sabi Sand in 2007 we saw a Secretary Bird standing in his/her nest high up at the top at of a very tall acacia tree. Silhouetted against the sky as the sun was setting, the huge nests of sticks along with the impressive bird made a lasting impression on me that I’ll never forget!

It is obvious that the article demanded a lot of research. The result is well written and appealing to a person as ill-informed as I am.The carefully selected pictures are outstanding and enhance the quality of the text.Well done !!! Keep up with the good work.

Thanks Werner. Its always good to see the feathered side of the Wild & your blog of their nests is lovely, especially the Carmine Bee-eaters, that I really would love to see <3
