In the heart of Maasai territory on the north-eastern boundary of the Serengeti National Park is a private concession of 10 000 hectares, set aside for the exclusive use of Klein's Camp's 20 guests. The spectacular location of the camp on the edge of the Kuka Hills commands sweeping views across a broad valley through which the annual great migration passes.
We took the Training rangers out on a walk this morning and from a distance we noticed a Gymnogene/African Harrier Hawk fly past us and land on a dead tree. We noticed two Starlings in the tree next to that one, so we figured that it was the adults trying to protect their chicks. As we got closer we realised that it had grabbed one of the chicks out of a hole in the tree. We watched it for about 10 minutes while it pulled out the feathers and ate the chick. It was "wild" to "watch"!!!!
