The Spotted Thick-knee: the quest continues

My story on the Spotted Thick-knee has aroused interest from far and wide and this has prompted me report on the responses I received from various circles. One of the birders, from Canada, who has kept the birding world, posted with good stories and updates, is “Barry the Birder” ( aka Barry Wallace) who took keen interest in the photos and the story to a page on  his blog.

You can follow this link to Barry’s article on the Thick-knee

    Hi Mpho
    I’m having a problem posting on your blog, might be my iPad at fault. I saw the post re the Hamerkop and wondered if you’d heard the myth that if a Hamerkop lands on your house, it means there will be a death? Anyway I also love the idea of regular posts regarding bird names in African languages and their significance
    Keep it up
