Meet another resident you'll definitely meet in Kabalebo: the Black Nunbird.
The most noteable about this bird is his red beak and thereby locally known as Roodsnavel or Redi Mofo. It is a common bird you'll most likely meet inside the forest or sitting high in a tree during a boat trip. But countless times I've spotted the Black Nunbird (Monasa Atra) at the River Cabin park.
The Black Nunbirds prefer shady places. The majority of their time they spend perched in a tree while scanning the area for 'potential preys'. Sometimes they sally in the air catching flying insects and sometimes they fly onto the ground to grab a lizard, frog or even a spider. One time I even saw a Black Nunbird taking a Tarantula from the ground.
Most of the time they keep quiet and while sitting for a long time still in one place, it happens sometimes that you will likely miss the Black Nunbird. But since it is a resident, you'll get a second chance the following day.
