Description

One of two flocks currently residing in the Springbok area. This specific flock consists of two individuals, while the other consists of 4 individuals. They seem to be roosting in Pine trees (Pinus sp) in town.

Their presence in the area is in all probability linked to the presence of anthropogenically maintained gardens and lawns. They also spend some time in the man-made impoundments in the Springbokfontein riverbed.

This is pretty wild! A friend sent these photos to us for identification. Once we told him what they were, he relocated to the forest behind their yard so the dog wouldn't make food of them. He said their were 5 in total. Isn't it kind of late in the season for a mating ball? Keen on any insight.
