The Flying Secretary by MorkelErasmus The Flying Secretary by MorkelErasmus
It is such a rare treat to see the Secretary Bird flying, not even to mention taking off in their awkward way with their long legs. I was fortunate to witness this on a recent trip to the Golden Gate Highlands National Park in the Drakensberg/Maluti mountains in South Africa.

This is one of my favorite birds. I love the colors, especially around the face. Awesome shot.
