Hope you catch the widowbird. \O
You are right Flutterby. My cousin always told us " Take your camera with you wherever you go - even to the toilet." How many good shots have I missed because I did not have a camera.

I have managed to get a few photos of the widowbird. O\/ O\/ O\/

Here is the White-winged Widowbird that we have seen in our garden over the past few days. Not the easiest of birds to photograph as they are very nervous.

And then he brought a friend along.

Hmmm.... :-? Not much wildlife in the toilet -- unless of course you want to count the spiders lurking in the long-drop O**
