Birds at Dusk

As dusk approaches, Sandgrouse – Black-faced, Four-banded and Lichtenstein’s – can be seen rallying near water. These beautifully patterned birds are known for the long flights they make during the breeding season, over distances as great as 40 km, to water holes, where males saturate specially modified breast feathers to carry water back to their waiting chicks.
