Yesterday we found not one but two of these lovely little owls in Dinokeng Game Reserve near Pretoria, South Africa. They hunt during the day from a perch, like this dead tree. A very special thing is that they have eyes in the back of their head, or at least spots that look like eyes as well!
A cheeky crested barbet perching on the edge of our balcony at Jaci’s Tree Lodge. He looks like he wants to say, “Hey, are you gonna give me some food or what?”
