I know, I've started on the bird index some time ago. But I need the life encounter to be able to memorize it. :whistle:

I wear glasses and so have four eyes but some of you guys and gals are awesome with your identifications from the cams. Eight or ten eyes?

What a lovely thread this is.

Hi,

Any ideas for the bird currently showing on the Nossob cam highlight (haven't learned how to put a picture in a thread yet - sorry).
My first reaction was the secretary bird that you often see at the Nossob cam, but it doesn't look tall enough and it's legs look feathered.
So, i wondered if the experts could help

thx

The one to the right looks to me like a Martial Eagle but not sure about the other two!
