Neighbourhood Watch - Dikkop

The dikkop is found throughout Southern Africa. It is another bird that has adapted well to city lifeThis one was spotted in the neighbourhood early one morning.

They usually hide during day light hours and come out at night. It is easy to miss them, as they stand still for long periods of time and blend in with the surroundings

We often seen them running about the park or down the streets at night or calling out with their very distinctive pi-pi-pi-pi-pi-pi-pi-pi-pi

You take some stunning shots, my friend. Beautiful. I visited the southern most tip of our island this week - a small island nearby is a bird and seal sanctuary - sadly, I didn't manage capture any particulary interesting photographs, but the trip in itself was still well worthwhile.

Hi Carol
Thanks for your comments - glad you enjoyed the shots.
Don't worry if you haven't taken any pics. I find it is sometime nice to leave the camera behind and just enjoy the scenery.
