... under the hot sun. Many of them swim gracefully in the water, others chill on boulders in small groups and the males incubate the eggs. Sitting on their eggs under the African sun is quite the task. Very few of them are bright enough to seek the nearby shade to make their nest so the majority sit, beak open, panting in the heat.
