Hierdie blou spreeus is taamlik mak en kom kyk graag wat toeriste vir ontbyt eet by die piekniekplek naby Berg-en-Dal. Ek kon my verkyk aan die bloublink vere en geel ogies.

    Wow! Wonderful pic! I just LOVE these cheeky birds Liz! Last time I was at Kruger Park, they would land right on the table and steal the food off your plate! I was ecstatic about that and the waiters just couldn’t understand that I wasn’t upset! And then I almost got thrown out of the dining room because I kept on feeding them across the railing of the stoep!

  • Sounds very familiar! I do the same! There was a hornbill even more cheeky than this one, I just couldn’t stop taking photos and almost forgot to eat my breakfast! Thanks for your lovely comment Maree.

    Great shot Elizabeth. I loved these birds but didn’t manage a pic of one. The flash of colour as they fly round is superb. Well captured. Alma

  • Thanks Alma, so glad I can take you on a trip again! ;-)
