Guineafowl .... in our garden

By fotobee  
Tulbagh South Africa

The Guineafowl through a clearing in our garden. The "wild area" is getting sadly battered, with the Guineas trampling down the tall growing millet to get to the seedheads, which they chomp through rapid sideways movement of their beaks, moving them from bottom to top of the seedhead. This leaves only a flattened husk attached to the plant, by stripping the seeds off. The plant itself is left on the ground, as the Guineas stand on it during this process, to get leverage. I will have to increase the size of the patch, as it is too small for the flock. The guineafowl are still as wild as ever, fleeing and cackling madly if we show a hair !

Thank you all for looking at, voting for and commenting on my "Clickers" yesterday. As always, this is appreciated !

Have a lovely day !

Best regards
