My Wife's 1st pic with the new lens. Love these birds although they look a bit sinister!

Hello, can you help me with the ID of this bird. The picture was from Magaliesberg. Sorry, the quality of the picture isn't very good.

Thanks,

Hi, I need a lot of help identifying birds! I've got lots and lots of birds that need identification! But I´ll start with 14. I'd be very glad if you could help me. It would also help if you get tell me how you identified them.
Thanks :thumbs_up:

11

All of them were seen in the south of Kruger.

Ps. If you need more pic's of the same bird, just ask.

I'm no expert, but I'd say that:

11. is an Arrow-marked Babbler

Hi Mwt,

OWN had ID'd 11 for you. (I agree with his ID)

Hope this helps.

Just seen PL's post as I hit the submit button. I think you have them all now between us :D

What's the worst that can happen OWN? You can get an ID wrong but at least you tried and then if someone corrects you go and see why they said so. This way you will learn so much faster and it will stick much easier if you put a bit of work into it! :thumbs_up:
