18 December 2010.
Rain in the morning.
White storks on a TV antenna.
At 7:37, we are at El Gfifat. A bit further, a kestrel on a lamppost. Magpies.
A great tit. Four white storks on the other river bank.
A pied wagtail near the river.
A greenfinch on a wire.
A laughing dove on another wire.
A spotless starling on a telephone pole.
A bit later, in the old walled town of Taroudant: house buntings mix with house sparrows on the busy market.
A bit of rain. Collared dove.
Near the town gate, a kestrel under a white stork nest.
On a TV tower just outside the city center, a lanner falcon eating a pigeon.
12:25: a dead great grey shrike along the motorway.
This is a black-shouldered kite video.
At 12:55, a black-shouldered kite on a tree.
At 13:15 at Aoulouz near the river, a long-legged buzzard.
Cattle egrets fly to the remains of an old bridge.
A little egret.
A kestrel tries to drive away a much bigger long-legged buzzard.
On the mountains, in big Arabic script: “God, Fatherland, the King”. And “Long live the king”.
A praying mantis on a tree in a mountain village.
In the evening, we arrive in Ouarzazate.
