The morning routine is the same as the morning before with a 6AM wakeup call followed by a light breakfast by the camp fire.
A Pel’s Fishing Owl at camp gets the birders excited.
We are the same six in the vehicle this morning as the previous evening. It’s the Scottish couple’s last morning so we focus on birds for their benefit, spending more time than I would like on LBJs – little brown jobs.
This is the downside to sharing a vehicle with other guests. You may have different objectives and interests. New guests tend to want to stop for just about everything. Birders spend lots of time chasing little brown specks. Photographers spend more time at a stop than others might like. It generally works out with guests being considerate of other guests’ wishes.
The morning highlights:
Kudu near the vehicle
Jackals lazing in the sun
Zebra at the lagoon
