Dicono che è comune,ma ne ho visti poi molti.

Stunning pictures Andrea. Yes, they are common but only near water as that is the source of their food. They build the biggest, most untidy nests with just a small hole for the male to feed the female through. When we are in Kruger I will show them to you. :)

My parents had a gold fish pond in Zimbabwe, well they did until the hammerkop discovered it!!! Great photos. Diane
