Catch-as-catch can is Etosha's fundamental law. Primarily carrion-eaters, marabou storks (Leptoptilos crumeniferus) have been known to prey on flamingos, but one at Ombika water hole learned how to go after large doves--behavior never before reported. Jen and Des Bartlett conclude that it was triggered by an abundance of doves following a rainy season when the birds raised several broods under unusually favorable conditions." When you get a plentiful food supply, something will learn how to exploit it," says Des.
