Description

We first spotted a juvenile who briefly flew from rock to rock and finally disappeared (second pic). It always remained distant and partially hidden when on the ground.

Time about 3.30 pm, temperature ca 30°C.

The male was in a tree nearby the nest. Have seen some beautiful pictures of them coming out of the hole in the tree where they have their nest by people who said they waited for three to four hours to get them. Glad one was outside this day.
