Nice pix, anne-marie! The second one looks smaller than a juvenile PCG (tho hard to tell from a photo), perhaps a juvenile gabar goshawk?

I am not sure with these raptors, seen in Addo in December. What do you mean?

Pic 1) Could it be an African Marsh Harrier?

Agree. :thumbs_up:

Well spotted Panthera Leo, on the SPCGH. The long tarsus is the clincher!

Just another PCG, yes but in the WCNP?! :thumbs_up: ; We on the West Coast were very excited cause this lone PCG was spotted for the first time during our 2011 Wader Bash, and by a student. She won the prize for Rarity Bird.
During this years' Wader Bash it was spotted again in the WCNP and won the runner up Rarity prize.
I was fortunate to see it last Monday for the first time and took this photo.

Hi Rookie.

I'm unsure of your last 2 pics. But I'm sure the experts on here will be able to tell you soon.

I agree with your first 3 pics being juvy PCG's.

Rookie I agree that the first 3 are all PCGs. The last two pics I think are also PCGs due to those long legs.

A big Thank you for your input :thumbs_up:

No need to feel uncomfortable WackoRhino.

We all started somewhere.

Juvenile PCGs are rufous. I have never seen a 'half and half' like you have. Nice sighting.
