  • Double-Banded Sandgrouse, Maurice Randall

    Circles within Circles


    As this male Double-Banded Sandgrouse looked up at me, it felt like it was trying on some hypnosis trick. It’s eyes circles, it feathers circles and its body circular.

    Sitting watching this pair I could but help thinking about how their monogamous family relationship was like, doing everything together, wherever they were in the National Park.

    Thanks for supporting the National Parks Guy website, and allowing me to show you the amazing wildlife and landscapes in our world.

  • Eggshell in Vogue, Maurice Randall

    Eggshell in Vogue


    If there one bird that looked like an eggshell, this would be it. The Female Double-Banded Sandgrouse. Mating for life, her and her spouse look for small seeds throughout the day, often with some family in tow, and at night, they head to the water. Always by each others side.

    But this is one bird to show off the seasons best dress I think. Perfectly camouflaged against the rough terrain and almost invisible in the long grass.

    Thanks you for supporting the National Parks Guy, and allowing me to share the beauty of the wildlife I experience with you.
