bird nerds rule

A traffic jam is never fun, but there’s one place in Cape Town where I don’t mind crawling along: the section of the N2 next to the Black River where you can often see flocks of greater flamingos making wide turns above the river as they search for a landing spot. They’re spectacular birds in flight (long, graceful necks held perfectly steady), but their landings are less elegant: thin legs clawing at the air, wings flapping rapidly, followed by a comical crash into the shallows next to the highway. It’s so entertaining that I have to keep reminding myself to focus on the road so I don’t drive off the verge or into the back of a minibus taxi! Other mornings, across the road from the old Athlone power station, just…

behind the scenes

What do you do? I work in public health. My job involves finding out which health programmes and services work for different types of people. My focus is on the health of mothers, babies and people with disabilities – in East Africa and southern Africa. I work for the Institute for Life Course Health Research (ILCHR) at the medical campus of Stellenbosch University; I also do some work for the World Health Organisation. I was in Musoma in the Mara region of Tanzania recently; next up is Geneva. What’s so special about Kenya? The Kenyans. The people of Kisumu, especially, embody the kind of national personality that travellers find so welcoming. Many international organisations and agencies are based in Kisumu. As a consequence, the city is full of doctors, engineers and…

upfront

Rhino sees red During a recent visit to Etosha, we went to the Okaukuejo waterhole one evening. There were four rhinos there, including a cow with a calf. Another rhino bull arrived and stormed the group. He fought one of the bulls from the herd, and when this bull left, he attacked the cow and her calf. We eventually left, but as soon as the sun was up, we set off to see what had happened. Only the angry bull was there. He was injured and still in a rage, charging at everything around him. The calf was dead. When he finally left, the cow returned and just stood there. It was distressing to watch. What might have prompted the aggression of the bull? RIECKIE HANSEN Wildlife expert LD VAN ESSEN says: This…

Just visiting? Q SUSAN SCHLEBUSCH from Queenstown writes: My husband and I like to drive around and look for birds to photograph. We recently saw greater and lesser flamingos at a dam near our home in Queenstown. According to records, they aren’t found in the area. Why would the birds show up here? A Bird expert LUKAS NIEMAND says: These are lesser flamingos and they’re often seen in areas where they were not previously encountered. They’re nomadic and they often move from one body of water (like pans and shallow dams) to the next, depending on the water level and the availability of food (they eat blue-green algae and diatoms). Conditions can change so quickly that the flamingos sometimes only stay a day or two before moving on. They also migrate between…
