July 2010

Kingfisher on the fence
So apparently the Langkloof is a birding hotspot. We get some very varied and wonderful birds here. To name a few we have:

The Black headed Oriole
Cape weavers = common
Mousebirds = pests
Fiscal shrikes

and there are probable hundreds more that I just haven't spotted yet..but for me the most amazing one is the little Kingfisher.

Kingfisher in Apricot tree
 Sometimes he just sits there, and sometimes he shows how they have gotten their name. Its an amazing little bird to watch, and the added bonus is that they are actually quite pretty.
