Waters & words : a celebration of flyfishing

The Secretary

Look at those long legs!




Have you ever had the privilege of watching a secretary bird tackling a poisonous snake?

It is quite something to watch!  Enough to cause me to pause a while and watch these things strutting around in the veld, in the hopes of seeing it again.

Clearly I was not the only one to make this association about the leggy secretary!

One response

  1. I’ve always thought this bird is regal/eagle looking, long legs & all. Nice photos.
