#Flycatcherfriday by +Jeff WendorffPhoto: New addition to my Mokala 2010 album: An Acacia Pied Barbet (Afrikaans: Bonthoutkapper) at the Haak en Steek Rest Camp, Mokala National Park, South Africa for #BirdPoker Feeding curated by +Phil Armishaw 
It primarily inhabits semi-arid savanna, as well as grassland, fynbos, agricultural areas and urban gardens, where it did not inhabit previously. With the introduction of alien vegetation, especially Acacia species from Australia, to regions bordering its original range, this species has been able to expand its range to these otherwise unreachable areas. Like most other barbets, the Acacia Pied Barbet drills holes into dead wood in order to create cavity nests, similar in manner to a woodpecker. It lays two to four eggs from August to April, and both sexes incubate the eggs.
The Acacia Pied Barbet has been observed taking fruit from various trees and shrubs, such as Ficus, Rhus and Phoenix reclinata, as well as Aloe nectar and insects.Photo: New addition to my Mokala album and my fifth card of the same species and thus a straight flush of this species to trump all contributions for #BirdPoker flycatchers curated by +Phil ArmishawPhoto: New addition to my Mokala album and my sixth and final card for #BirdPoker flycatchers curated by +Phil ArmishawPhoto: I now also submit this for #BirdPoker Females curated by +Phil Armishaw

An Eland with only one horn at the Haak en Steek waterhole, Mokala National Park. The night before we heard them hitting heads. The place where the horn broke off was obviously sore as he kept on soothing it in the water.Photo: Mokala National Park 23-29 August 2010Photo: A new addition to my Mokala album for the "Golden Hour" theme for #WholeWildlifeWeek and for an early #WildlifeWednesday by +Mike SpinakPhoto: Mokala National Park 23-29 August 2010Photo: Mokala National Park 23-29 August 2010Photo: Mokala National Park 23-29 August 2010Photo: Mokala National Park 23-29 August 2010Photo: A Roan Antelope (Afrikaans: Bastergemsbok), Mokala National Park.Photo: Spotted Thick-knee (Afrikaans: Gewone Dikkop), Mokala National Park.Photo: A storm brewing very far away.
