Lol Sparrow, there is no age limit on gaining knowledge and those courses are not that difficult. I know you like reading about birds, then see these courses as one of those books Laughing out loud

Sparrow after I read willywatches msg I was just about to say almost the same as you. Only yesterday I saw 4 egyptian geese. They are pretty when they fly. Smiling
Have any of you considered taking up any of those courses on wildlifecampus? I just had a look at the Behaviour guide to Mammals of the RSA Lowveld, because I was looking for info on the aardvark. There is quite a lot about mongooses. Then you will have something to do when the cam is down Laughing out loud
It is much more interesting when you watch the cams and you know something about the animal you see.

Laughing out loud Hi Willywatch Laughing out loud I never thought it could be a badger, always thought is was the White tailed Mongoose! Laughing out loud
About the mongoose ignoring the geese and the geese ignoring the mongoose: I know those Egyptians! We have them here in Holland too, and I can assure you, they are absolutely fearless and much fiercer than other geese!!!
Why did the mongoose ignore the geese? the White tailed Mongoose might eat birds, but mostly small birds, occasionally a chicken from a chicken-house. Egyptian Geese are bigger than chicken and won't act like chicken at all. Though I guess they would fly away when there's a Honey Badger nearby.

Laughing out loud But who am I? Eye-wink

no debate about why it avoided the birds? and why the birds weren't concerned with the mongoose. or badger, for those who still think it was a badger
