When some birds are ready to mate, their appearance let it know too.
Save the best for last. Part 3 of our birding adventure.
This lurking predator is on the look out for something tasty.
Quite an entrance!
It is now very common that other animals also come to the ocelot feeder: opossums, paca's, Tegu's, Vultures ... just to name a few. They all enjoy the free left overs. But there are also others who are just passing by.
While I was going through the trap cam pics, taken at the ocelot feeder, I stumbled upon this particular picture; a Lowland tapir just minding his own business while crossing over. As the feeder is right behind staff houses it is now clear that this tapir was right behind us walking through our garden too.
Expect the unexpected!
That is quite a scare!
This Golden Tegu, by no means, scared this Black Vulture at the ocelot feeder. It almost gave it a heart attack by sneaking up to him from behind.
While looking through all the video's and pictures from the ocelot trap cam, I came across these pictures of the Black Vulture and the Golden Tegu. It all happened in a split second, but those were such pretty pictures to share.
These Red-fan Parrots skillfully avoid the thorns of this Awarra Palm tree. Can you do that too? I certainly can't.
