Secretary Bird (Photograph Copyright 1969)

This Secretary Bird, which appeared almost to be dancing, may have been attempting to dodge a snake which it had pounced upon and missed. Mating or territorial defense has been ruled out because this tpye of activity has been sighted on occasions when no other birds of the same species are in the area.
