In the Nauga Valley. Bokmakierie. 10″ x 8″. Acrylic on Pine. 2018.

We would hear the Bokmakierie during our morning bird point counts, but it wasn’t until our drive down into the Nauga Valley near the end of my two weeks at Gondwana, that I was actually able to see and photograph one of these birds. It was perched for just a few minutes on an acacia shrub.
