It was a lucky outing.
|There's a dwarf bittern or juvenile green heron in here. |
It thinks its hiding.
|Green heron (j) or Dwarf bittern?|
|This is the reflection of leaves in the pond|
There are a startling number of "canaries" in Durban - more than I remembered. Every time I see a new exciting yellow bird on the ground Dad says "probably canaries". I am not sure whether Dad is correct or merely lazy with their identification. They are the new version of the LBB (little brown bugger) - my LYCPC (little yellow critter probably canary).
There was one particular little yellow bird which had a red blush under its chin which I am still trying to identify. The female was more buff and it was the size of a weaver. I am guessing (without binoculars) that it was a Cape Weaver.
I also took a picture of a lovely pattern of leaves in the pond. I was thinking of printing a few larger versions of it to hang on the wall. I thought Jen would appreciation my meditation in taupe.
Wren enjoyed the outing with us... especially the putting on the practice golf T. We found some lost balls in the shrubbery and Wren decreed that the florescent yellow ball was The Winners Ball. Frost remained at home because he said "this one day I am feeling less than half of 1000%. I am just TIRED!"
