Daddy Long legs, and Mommy as well - ostriches.
Monday, this week, the first eight chicks were collected from the nest. The reason for removing the chicks are multifold; feral dogs, jackal, mongooses, even people, will harvest the brood if they could.

Mommy was not happy at all, still, there was no asking her, discussing the pros and cons, explain to her the situation - Mother knows best!
She told us very clearly what she would do to us, should she be able get hold of us.

Fortunately, Daddy was not close-by, he is a real problem, he is not as easy to keep at bay with a stick as is Mommy.

Wednesday gave us another two chicks, still five eggs to go.

The rain is like a leopard, a spot here, a spot there, not something to get involved with - as in many places, people simply got too much which resulted in flooding and all the problems.
