Red River

You’ve probably guessed from all the pictures taken during the walks that Chester and I take along the  Red River, that this section of the river is right in my neighbourhood.  🙂

Other than the spring flood, I seldom show the river or the riverbank.  Yesterday I mentioned the tall grasses and weeds, so today, I decided to show you.

Not too many people walk their dogs down there anymore.  There are a lot of burrs and the growth is so tall and thick that the dog would be out of sight very quickly.  That is probably why the birds have become more abundant in this area.  Amazingly enough, very few people even glance down there.  The path is above, which is where I was standing while taking the pictures.

Since it generally floods in the spring, I hope it will be safe from any kind of development.

So far on Africam today, we have seen Lions, Elephant, Nyala, Fork-tailed  Drongo, Kurrichane Thrush, Waterbuck, Gymnogene (African Harrier Hawk), Giraffe, Zebra, Egyptian Goose, Helmeted Guinea Fowl, Hadeda Ibis, and Salome our Cheetah with her 3 growing cubs.  Click here to see all of today’s pictures – there is still lots of time for more sightings.  🙂
