Hi Tom, the smaller one is a Blacksmith Lapwing and the one in the foreground I thought Egyptian Goose as well. :hmz:

Hard to tell :(

Could be anything but my three guesses would be:

Bateleur's Eagle
Martial Eagle
Cape Crow

Hi Tom,

They look like Yellow-billed Kites to me. (Bill on left hand bird, shortish legs, posture, rufous undertail/legs on right hand bird).

Hi Barcud,

Thanks for the ID! Now I'll know for future, but its unlikely we'll get such a "zoomed-in" view on the cams for quite a while!

JJ, I'd say a female comb duck (knob-billed duck). :hmz:
