Geez H.erectus, a nice bunch of lifers.

Are you sure about the last one "Egyptian Vulture" :big_eyes: ??? that would constitute an extreme rarity, and the return of the species to Southern Africa?

You still got a few more days to make it past 200 for the year.

Added Flappet Lark last weekend to push me to 490

I think my target of 500 may have to wait until 2013 :(

That Egyptian Vulture also had me excited but I think that these are now listed as "Regionally Extinct" in Southern Africa.

H.erectus you wouldn't happen to have a photo of the bird? Because if it is one you will cause another stampede to Kruger..... :whistle: That would be the mega rarity of the summer.....

Just remembered pondering in hindsight about a
lovely trip, I totally forgot/overlooked that famous
owl in Tsendze. Elinah was my bird guide.

African Scops-Owl.

Bump me another notch to 192.

Adrian P I knew this was coming but heck
I'm prepared to stand my ground here. Hah

I believe I was staring at a juvenile Gyp vulture.
The long feathers at the back of the head, together
with the slender beak, welll....

Prior to that a rather large vulture, yellow in color
left it's perch! This sighting happened close to
Balule.

How are you for a Bara birding break tommorow
I will be there.

Check out the images of both hooded vulture and juvenile bateleur. Both can have the "egyptian vulture" like appearance.
