A small, little interesting fact for Kruger afficionados is that the Golden-rumped Tinkerbird can also be found in the big trees in the middle of Crocodile Bridge camp. 8) It's the only reliable spot for them in the Kay 'N Pee as far as I know.

Heard a sound against a window and down came this little chick @ Ngwenya Lodge, just outside KNP. :D

Found last Sunday, on a very cold, rainy day in Skukuza camp after picking up its call amongst the racing Jeep Jockeys.
