    • It’s a gorgeous tall bird, a bit aggressive. I shot a series of pictures at about 50 ft. and it wanted to intimidate me holding her stare at me. They are experts at killing snakes. Thanks Jet! 🙂

    • The secretarybird or secretary bird (Sagittarius serpentarius) is a very large, mostly terrestrial bird of prey. Endemic to Africa, it is usually found in the open grasslands and savannah of the sub-Saharan region. Although a member of the order Accipitriformes, which also includes many other diurnal raptors such as kites, hawks, vultures, and harriers, it is given its own family, Sagittariidae.
