Savanna grasslands 

This habitat is characterized by coastal sour and mixed grassland, acacia karroo trees up to 3m and fynbos elements. Acacias are an asset to birdlife as they produce plenty of pollen and nectar which attracts countless insects. These in turn are food for the birds.

They can be seen striding purposefully through grassland, head down and occasionally stamping the ground to dislodge prey. If successful, they raise their wings excitedly then stamp down hard to kill the prey.
