You see I wasn't a birder when I visited Kruger.
The 31 I've counted are from pictures we took of our trip :D
Its a start....but watch out for my next trip....I'm a coming to get you.....

We spent this last weekend in Sirheni and I saw a Black-faced Waxbill. I was very surprised, but according to Roberts Multi Media, it is in (or just outside) the bird's normal distribution.

My total now is 321.

This trip supplied 116, but my previous trips will definitely add more, so we go do some homework...
