When I got to my growing-on ponds yesterday, I saw this next to the ponds, and could not make out what the hell it is until it started to move when I got closer.

What do you think?

Jong, drunken ek sweer daar is met die photo "gephotoshop"

Lyk vir my na 'n donkie se kop, 'n boomstomp en 'n valk se kop.

Nee wat Paul, jy het my.

Eugen, you are almost spot on. It is a Brown Snake Eagle that got tangled in my overhead nylon ( to keep the Herons out).

We have nets over the ponds, but the Herons learned that if they stand on the nets, it goes down and they can walk on it, poking our fish full of holes. I therefore had to do the overhead nylon as extra precaution.


Poor thing trying to fly away when I arrived, only to be forced back to the ground.

Finally released, but then it did not want to fly away.

these birds are amazing. My cousin races pigeons and the one days comes out to see a african goshawk circling above. SO he plants a trap and catches it. Within 2 weeks he had this think eating out his hand, fully trained. Tought it commands in greek, would fly to him, everything. If a pigeon was not performing he would go to the veld with the pigeon in a cage and the hawk on his arm (leather brace offcourse) and he would release the pigeon, wait a few secs and command the hawk to go after it.

An absolutely unbelievable sight. These things are so intelligent and it's amazing that from the wild to within 2 weeks he had this bird trained, the bond that is formed so soon is absolutely amazing.
