On Monday afternoon I saw a Black-collared Barbet perching on the vegetable garden fence. By the time I'd fetched my camera from the office (now indoors as it's very cold in the Central Drakensberg_ and gone outside again, the barbet had flown off.
In its place was a Dark-capped Bulbul.
So I took photos...
While I was crouching out in the garden, enjoying the afternoon sun and many garden birds, Derryn, the younger daughter of the young farmer next door, called me from the road between my garden and theirs. She'd seen a Fish-eagle in a dead tree on the riverbank while out on their patio. She invited me to come along in her mum's prado and see it close by.
Which we did.
And I took photos.
The female is larger than the male and has a larger white chest band. As there was only one bird at the site, we couldn't compare.

A HAPPY AND SAFE SUNDAY TO YOU ALL!
