Nov. 10 and a photo of Mother Nature's light show.



Nov. 15  and a sweet video of a very young elephant learning to drink with it's mouth. Forget the trunk business - too heavy and unwieldy.

Catching up on some of the activity.  It has been an emotional week for all here. MoJo will be missed, but remembered for her love of wildlife, and her giving, gentle and loving spirit.  :ecsad

Nov. 10 by Pat Nebraska - lighting over the Mashatu.


Nov. 20 - a very rare sighting - A 'Goliath / Great Heron.

David Barnes took this photo of a Reed Cormorant +/- mid Nov.  He was around Mashatu a few weeks ago, so maybe taken then?

'Mousebird'.


I believe this to be the 'Speckled' variety; as the entire beak is black.  Only the tip of the beak is black in the 'White-backed' variety.

Jan. 16 Video

Elephant Calf has Night Scare. By Pat Nebraska.

If your volume is way up, you may wish to lower it a tad. A major trumpet call occurs.
