Northern Cape Birding
The large-eyed faces of three Southern White-Faced Owl chicks starred down at me with inquisitive bobbing heads from the upper branches of a dense acacia tree and as I turned my head to the left to look into the adjacent tree, I also noticed a Pearl-Spotted Owlet peering out at me from a hollow in the knarled branch of...
