I'd go with abdim's stork as well. Their legs seem to be too long for a crow. :hmz:

I think it might be Tawny Eagles JJ but lets hear from some experts as well!

Thanks for the ID PL -

I have another bird to confirm ID please? Is it flamingoes? Do they even visit this area?

Image

there is another pic 30 seconds earlier with 2 birds also in the waterhole (this is why I think it could be flamingo, because Secretary birds seem to be always on the edge)

Again at Nossob?

JJ

Hi JJ,

Looks like a White Stork. The bill is way too big for a flamingo.

Barcud thanks for this info - :D

Are they passing through this area or do they migrate here to arid/semi desert places in the European winter - if I have got the right species the European White Stork?

Hi JJ,

Yes, it's the European White Stork. They spend the Northern Winter in South Africa. From the maps, I see they are less common in the West than the rest of SA.

Hi Tilandi,

I would go for Martial Eagle as this is a big bird.

No problem Tilandi, it helps me to learn your birds, so I'm benefiting from trying to ID them.

Please help - Is this a crane of some kind? Thanks
I know the other one is a marabou.

Looking at the pics before this particular one, I'd say, they're both marabous.

Hi Lionspoon

The Marabou does not have the long tail?

The pics before this one were at 9:06 and 9:11 this was was 30 minutes later at 9:36.

In my bird book it looks like a blue crane to me?

JJ
