The hammerkopf (hammerhead in Afrikaans) was standing motionless while watching for any little movement...good for it but not for me. These guys, compulsive nest builders, make nest 3.5-5 ft. across and heavy enough to support a person...it has been reported that people have been killed when a nest fell on them.

Eric:
Is this the male or female of the species? With that large nest, they should have plenty space to raise a brood.

Nice shots Eric. They must lead a royal life with all that built-up area

If the second image is a zoom-in shot, Eric, that guy/gal really DID hold still; it looks like a very sharp crop of the first.
Odd that they should build unnecessarily large nests. Wildlife seldom does anything that serves no purpose.
Very nice images.

This bird has an interesting crest also. It's often easy to photograph but is ellusive at the nest. Nice pose with these. Don

Very interesting looking bird, Eric.
He must be very fast to sit at this distance from the water. Did you see him attack something?

Good grief, you're killin' me with all this good stuff from Africa. I might have to blame you when I book my ticket.
