Black Heron: Umbrella Hunter
At the boundary between Botswana and Namibia we were treated to two encounters with the remarkable Black Heron, which has an exceptional hunting behavior, as shown in this short video. We met the birds along the Namibian shore of the Chobe River, not too far from the town of Kasane. We were in a boat and the birds were in the marsh. Not too far downstream, the Chobe becomes the Zambezi.
