See the South African national bird at the Austin Roberts Bird Sanctuary

The Austin Roberts Bird Sanctuary is a 11.76 ha nature reserve located in the Walkerspruit Open Space System, in the Nieuw Muckleneuk suburb of Pretoria and is a regular Sunday afternoon picnic spot for families. The area around the Blue Crane restaurant, which lies virtually on the dam and adjacent reed beds, attracts blue crane, grey crowned crane, rock doves, speckled pigeons and the odd Egyptian goose, that all feed regularly here. There is a bird hide and guided walks as well as an exhibition hall.
