Greywing francolin - Montagu WCape


These elusive birds are nonetheless very vocal. I have not yet been able to see them or get a photo, so I have added an illustration I did so the ob doesn't look so boring. Proof of their existence in my back "garden" can be heard here. The loud francolin calling at the end of the recording is Cape francolin.

I did the illustration to go with this poem by the inimitable Carol Clark:

Die swart pupil

Dis skemer
in die Keisie –
die sku patrys
sal weer
die eensaamheid en stilte
met sy roep
aksentueer.

Bokant,
soos dit donker word,
begin die sterre riel...
Oombliklik
as ek opkyk
lê dit in
my swart pupil.

U onderskraag
die vaal patrys –
laat draai
die sterrewiel.
In hierdie uur
rig ek op U
die fokus
van my siel.
