A White-Necked Raven settled down in front of one of the cameras for a bite to eat. It is a rather large bird and an impressive Raven.

A pair of Red-winged Starlings also call the quarry home. The female has 'n paler head than the male. I like these birds and they are rather handsome as well. They always remind me of the breeding pair nesting in the courtyard of the Mathematics building at UP, where my wife and I studied.

The Bushnells didn't capture a lot of action at night, but managed to photograph a Cape Eagle-owl landing on the rocks nearby.

Next time I'll post the other mammal species that got captured at Tygerberg's quarry.
