It would be awesome if you could photo the first flights! Good luck!

Fantastic to follow this family.

Lovely birds! There’s no species alike in other parts of the planet I suppose

Amazing to follow this family’s progress!!!

Just wonderful, these birds!

Wow James, great blog. Takes me back! You see, as an ex-guide I was overcome with acute nest algia reading this.

Dad jokes already?

There’s no better viewing than new life! Enjoyed the short video.

James, I loved video🤗

You really captured some great footage of these cute little birds! So clear!

Such a lovely story about these beautiful little birds.

Oh wow, it took quite a few trips to Africa to appreciate the sumptuous bird 🦅 life , simply because for many of us birds are a daily occurrence .
For those chicks camouflage and quick growth are their method of defence. Stunning spot

Oh and super photography as well, bird photos are much harder than elephants 🐘 lions 🦁 or leopards 🐆

Good Luck with catching their first attempts at flight, that would be fantastic to see. Have really enjoyed seeing these guys on your weekly videos

How quickly they have grown since your last video ! ….even in their later stage of growth their camouflage is incredible. I wish them luck and you, in capturing their onward journey !🙏🏻

James, I believe I got the answer to my question on your previous post about the batis!! Just catching up on your posts!!!
