Here's an interesting story with video of a flying beast allegedly coming in for a food grab - perhaps Silver King could (among other possible comments) make a good identification of this being an eagle or an osprey:

I saw it too. I was going to post a link, but the one a friend posted on fb had NSFW language in the caption.

It's a shame that it'll die when there's still time and the means to save it. I'm sure it visits that same spot often.
I followed up with the rangers today. They said the bird is a resident and will eventually come to shore when she weakens, where she will then be easily captured and taken to a sanctuary to recover. They acted as if she'd appear before long with her wings raised in defeat, begging for help.

I didn't buy that for a minute. And their soothing tone as they tried to dismiss my concerns irked me to no end.

I don't want to cause trouble for them, but there will be some price to pay over their half-ass attempt to rescue the anhinga if she should perish. And I told them as much, so we'll see what happens.

Are you kidding? You're always so supportive and thoughtful and inspiring in this thread, and it wouldn't be nearly as interesting without your input.

You should share the link (again) to the Africam site. If you don't, I will!

It's hard to tell for sure but looks like an osprey, only a super-sized version several times it's normal dimensions. Or perhaps the bird is normal sized, and the people in the scene and other objects have been shrunk way down.

Either way, the clip is pretty funny. I mean, can you imagine raptors swooping in and snatching children like that? Well, maybe it's not that funny, but I know a few kids I wouldn't mind seeing taken in that fashion...

Yes, like that one. But my experience was for reals!

I got so rapt up in keeping an eye on the stupid deer that I didn't make it back in here. The deer (I'm not sure what species maybe someone will know from the pics) stuck near the croc for almost two hours. Sniffing at it, lying down near it, and staring at it...

Here, the deer first notices the newcomer.



Little birds try to warn the deer, they make all kinds of racket, but the deer never heeds them.



Finally something in the brush a ways off scared him and he ran away. I hope the rest of the wildlife around there are smarter. There's a lot of baby zebras around.

Well maybe since they know that someone is concerned and more importantly that someone is a witness to their clumsiness, maybe they'll make it a point to keep an eye out for her. I guess the thing has to be pretty much dead before they can manage to capture it. I think you would've done a better job at it. *sigh*

Aw...thanks SK. I really love this thread and love being a part of it. And how everyone shares their photos and especially all the effort you put forth to capture such amazing scenes that some of us will never see.

Like those. See, I've heard of those birds, of course, but I've never seen one and couldn't tell you what one looked like, but thanks to you, I know exactly what they look like now and so many other species that you've shared on here. Great photos, SK!

Nify, I love the African images. Whenever I check the sight out, nothing's happening, so I'm glad you are sharing some of the action.

I did some research to figure out what type of deer that is. It's actually an antelope, a waterbuck specifically.

SK, nice cormorant images! the sun really highlights the detail of its feathers.

Sounds like they were trying to placate you, or at the very least, downplay their earlier mistake.

I hope you have another chance to help the anhinga. Without the "assistance" of those two rangers.

Very menacing. The resident animals better watch out. From it's size, it looks like it's been very successful at stalking its prey.

Interrupting this conversation to bring to you a link to my latest drawing, a sketch of one of the characters in my novel. This one I finished in a few hours, but took me several tries and sketches to come up with this one. It's pretty close to how I envision him.

Tepelus, your drawing is beautiful.

For those of you watching the croc on the Africam, the hippo has returned to the lake. Should be interesting.

Are you sure they would "kill" the gator? I am from Florida where gators can run amok. Even if they do end up somewhere dangerous (like a pool), they don't kill them. They just remove them to a local river or other water source where the fact that it is a gator area is clearly marked. While thinking the gator would kill a child is pretty remote, it could kill a pet which can be pretty awful (my pets are my kids). If the gator doesn't move on soon, (which it will if it doesn't find a mate), manual relocation will be his best option.
