Our resident Hadeda caught this Brown House-snake about 30cm long against a brick wall. Every month or so it will come check the wall for more snakes and that is how I managed to get these photo's.

Looked closely at the plumage. It appears to be a youngster. Obviously hasn't learned what it is supposed to eat :)

This Hadeda caught the snake against an embanked wall in my garden and it's not the first time either. There must be a snake nest around as it checks the wall every month or so. They are skittish birds but a pair of them have become quite tame and often stare a me through the window while I'm working at the computer. I stare back of course! :D

Nice! How about submitting it to Ornithological Observations on the ADU Website. Easy to do and a well worthwhile publication as I do not know if snakes have been reported as prey for Hadedas before. You can post the story with your pictures. :D
