Sanda Clause! (Namaqua sand grouse)
Secretary bird drinking

We were fortunate to get close to these birds so that we could get tight shots and the lighting was just perfect (plus a little fill flash for the giant eagle owl)!

I agree

I have to agree with Grant, the Sand Grouse does it for me. These guys are not easy to photograph as they are always on the move in a flock so you never know which one to focus on.

Nice action shots

I love the sand grouse taking off and the frozen water droplets with the secretary bird.
