When my mother was still with us, we used to spend many a Sunday at the Treehaven Waterfowl Trust Bird Park in Vereeniging, Gauteng. My mother, then 90+-years-old used to love walking in the park and feeding the birds. These photos were taken between 2010 and 2013.

Most of these birds have been placed in the park after they were rescued from adverse circumstances and nursed back to health or were bred in the park. They were very tame and only at feeding time did they become very animated.
