Hi Ducklings

Let's see what you make of these. I think some reading and research will be required :twisted: :twisted:

If you want to give me the Afrikaans names that will also do. From the next challenge I will take birds of one region only or if you would rather have different regions just let me know

So here goes

1) What is it and where was the picture taken (Region)

Image

The next pictures were taken in the eastern side of Botswana

2)
Image

3)
Image

4)
Image

5)
Image

6)
Image

The following central KNP - Satara - Orpen
7)
Image


8)
Image

9)
Image


10) And this one KTP

Hi Ducklings

Everyone did well in this challenge 1 or 2 birds gave some problems

1) What is it and where was the picture taken (Region)
Common fiscal; eastern region as it has no white supercilium
This was taken in Addo I even thought I had a new tick when I took the picture
Image

Retz's helmetshrike

2)
Image

3) Dusky lark - Very few problems here
Image

4) Wattled cranes - no problems
Image

5) Yellow-throated sandgrouse - Very few problems here
Image

6) Arrow marked Babbler - No problems
Image

7) African Crake
7)
Image


8) Wattled Starling - This bird was the bad boy and gave the most problems. Being a juvenile made it tough Most books will show the male in breeding colours
Image

9) African Jacana

10) Martial eagle
