Cape Crow's Nest ?
We mostly saw Greater Kestrels but sometimes spotted Cape Crows as we crossed the Namib Desert east of Luderitz, in the ǁKaras Region of Namibia, Africa. That left us debating as to what owned this nest ..... kestrel or crow? After googling I found that Greater Kestrels use the old nest of another bird for breeding, such as that of a Cape Crow or Pied Crow. A typical site is between 2 and 20 metres above the ground in a tree or sometimes on a telegraph pole. Mmmm I guess whatever uses it now, it was originally a Cape Crow's nest!
