Secretary birds, Kalahari

This secretary bird was sitting on his nest when it saw the other one - presumably its mate - approaching.

It flew down, sauntered towards it, and then jumped up on it for a few seconds - allowing me to get this shot, among a sequence of others.

Then it continued onwards, while the other bird flew up to the nest.

If anyone knows more details about this behavior, please email me and let me know.

Shot Details
Canon 1D Mk2, 500/4, 14x TC
