If Pelicans are my favorite ocean birds, then Secretary birds are my favorite land birds. Loooove these guys. Don’t ask me why, I just do.

As a kid I always wondered where they store all the notes they keep as secretaries….

As pelikane my gunsteling see-voëls is, is sekretaries voëls my gunsteling land-voëls. Ek kan net nooit genoeg van hulle kry nie.

As kind het ek altyd gewonder waar hulle al die notas bêre wat hulle as sekretaresses moet maak.
