CommentTwo hours after the Collared Sparrowhawk departed this Brown Falcon arrived also looking for a drink. Not often seen close at hand as they can be seen perched on powerlines. A pair of these falcons were in the vicinity of this watering point just after sunrise but did not come in. So the possibility of a close encounter was incentive to return later in the day. And bonus, a head and shoulders portrait of a common beautiful raptor in a feather fluffed moment is enough reason to submit this image.
