Knysna Loeries or Turacos are one of South Africa's iconic endemic birds with their bright green colouration and their habit of jumping along branches instead of flying they are also lots of fun to observe. Here one paused to gulp down some food in the Ebb and Flow campsite in Wilderness

The highlight of my Bowra trip a couple of months ago was having the opportunity to photograph these incredibly beautiful little Bourke's Parrots.
A very shy bird, my friends & I froze when this little stunner dropped into the waterhole we were staking out for an arvo drink. The parrot flew in just out of range & stood motionless for what felt like an eternity as it was sussing us out trying to determine if we were a threat. My heart was trying to jump out of my chest I was so excited & anxious, hoping with all my being that it would decide to come in for a drink.
Then in happened!
This gorgeous creature slowly starting walking towards the water, stopping every few steps to reassess. Soon enough it was within range & I thought the shutter in my camera was going to explode as I fired off dozens of shots as the bird quietly & calming continued onto the water source.
After a decent drink, it happily flew away.
I was exhilarated!
One of these magic birding moments I will remember for the rest of my life.
Interesting to note, if you looks closely at birds chest & neck, you will see what looks like regurgitated food. There's a very good chance this bird had recently been feeding young!
