Birds of Pilansberg - Part 3

The moon was still showing over the low hills.....
...and the rhino peacefully catching 40 winks. This bright spark decided to try to catch this Egyptian Goose coming in to land without much success. LOL!!
I did manage to get a fairy decent shot of this tiny little Blue Waxbill. They are as small as finches.
The Black-collard Barbet gave me the eye and wanted me to scram so he could find more worms.
This beady-eyed Arrowmarked Babbler looks kind of evil, so I got out of there fast. :)
