This is a beautiful red-chested cuckoo seen on the wetlands boardwalk near Lake Panic in Kruger. It has an unusual Afrikaans name of ‘Piet, my vrou’ or ‘Pete, my wife’... The story goes that when an assistant of 19th century French naturalist François Le Vaillant killed a specimen for recording, its widowed mate harassed the poor man, incessantly calling ‘Piet, my vrou’, so Le Vaillant named it after him! This loud call is quite commonly heard in the bush but the red-chested cuckoo is notoriously difficult to spot as it stays still and is cryptically camouflaged. Cuckoos are fascinating birds that engage in ‘brood parasitic’ behaviours. This refers to cuckoos laying their eggs in the nests of other birds, which are then fooled into incubating them and rearing the chicks. The cuckoo itself has nothing to do with the protection and development of its own young as a result and makes for an extremely curious and unusual behaviour in the animal world. We added a blog post about the birds of Lake Panic for those interested in more - link via profile... 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻 . We are building the KrugerExplorer App! It will be a beautiful wildlife field guide with detailed profiles and photos on 300+ animals plus a routes guide with 60 of our favourite routes detailed with explanations on the landscape and what wildlife you might be able to see! It will be available in March 2019 and there is loads more info on our website (see above bio link) - please check it out! 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻 . @krugerexplorer #krugerexplorer #krugernationalpark #kruger #selfdrive #safari #africanwildlife #wildlifeguide #fieldguide #blogger #newapp #thisissouthafrica #wildlifelovers #wanderlust #fantasticbeasts #amazinganimals #redchestedcuckoo #cuckoo #cuckoos #bird #birds #bird_watchers_daily #bird_lovers #birder #birdwatching #birdsofsouthafrica #birding_lounge #birdlife #bird_lovers_daily #birdingphotography #parasites at Kruger National Park

This mallard doesn't float just because. Like many other waterfowl, have a gland at the base of the tail called the uropigial gland. This gland secret is a waterproof fat that the birds themselves with their beaks extend over all feathers, making them clean so that water does not penetrate. In this way the air adheres to its down and the rest of the feathers seal it, like a float. . . Well, it's one of my fav. duck shot. Do you agree? 🤔😉 . .

Did you know you are not supposed to call a female of this species a peacock? They're peahens. I am sure that knowledge will come useful. Some day. Perhaps. The males have magnificent plumage because the females rule the roost and select who to mate with. If males do not show off, their genes will not survive. Any resemblance to real existing persons is purely coincidental. * * #ig_birdwatchers #birdwatcher #birding #nuts_about_birds #birding_lounge #best_birds_of_ig #birdfreaks #birdsadored #feather_perfection #udog_feathers #bird_brilliance #nature_worldwide_birds #planetbirds #kings_birds #your_best_birds #ip_birds #total_birds #birds_adored #birds_birds_perfection #ig_discover_birdslife #birds #naturyst #birdsofinstagram #birdart #birdsofig #birdoftheday #fantastic #color at Bali, Indonesia
