I came upon these youngsters scouting around in the grass, they seemed unaware of me as I crept closer…. and then….
“Whoooo what the hell is that ?? Oh it’s only a bulldog…” … “But let me get some height and have another look.”
“Yep a bulldog” …. (What the hell are they? Then I saw the parent and realised they were Juvies)
“Red-billed Spurfowl”… she moved closer to make my ID easier….
“This Bulldog seems more interested in Mom… let me strut my stuff….”
“Lets give him a pose…. a close-up… and now PUSH OFF so we can eat !!….”
“Let me close my eyes and pretend he’s not there….”
The red-billed spurfowl (Pternistis adspersus), also known as the red-billed francolin, is found in Angola, Botswana, Namibia, North West of South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
