I'd love to be able to sleep over at the top of the mountain one day.

The best I could do in as early as possible to get up there morning light.

Let's start with a ringed Buff-streaked chat male

and his lady friend
Image

A male Mocking Chat
Image

and a Female Cape rock Thrush
Image

and I must get back to Marakele to get a better shot of this one

Very nice pictures Avon.

Don't forget to look for the Cape Sugarbird in the summer months.

Thanx, yes I missed out on the sugar bird - hence the hint to sleep over on top of the mountain :wink:

A few more shots - this is not my thread, I just started it - please add more birdies

When I visited Marakele I was not yet an avid bird-watcher. I really missed out, but I did took some photos of the odd bird I spotted. Here are some of them..

Buff-streaked Chat

Grey Heron
Image

Pied Kingfisher
Image

Verreax's Eagle
