No, this is not about some dodgy office antics. 😉
This is about the actual bird:
The Secretary Bird is a rare sighting indeed.
On Saturday, after some brunch and some geocaching with friends, Catherine and I sat in the back of the car and watched as the surrounding grasslands raced by.
It was then, that I tapped her on the shoulder enthusiastically and pointed out the bird in the distance.
I wished we had stopped.
I should have said something.
Perhaps even taken a photo.
But I was stunned.
This was a rare sighting. I was super thrilled to have seen it.
I told Catherine, “You need to understand that one doesn’t often get to see that bird. It’s scarce.”
The last time I had seen a secretary bird was probably in the Drakensburg around 10 – 15 years ago.
