Good morning everyone!… The Lanner Falcons are having fun again at Kij Kij! Here one is snatched in mid-air! The sandgrouse comes down to the waterholes to fill their feathers with water for their chicks! The feathers of the belly are specially adapted to absorbing water and retaining it, allowing adult birds, particularly males, to carry water to chicks that may be many miles away from watering holes, up to 50 km away! Enjoy and see you tomorrow!
