Hi Mwt,

OWN had ID'd 10 for you. (I agree with his ID)

Hope this helps.

Just seen PL's post as I hit the submit button. I think you have them all now between us :D

What's the worst that can happen OWN? You can get an ID wrong but at least you tried and then if someone corrects you go and see why they said so. This way you will learn so much faster and it will stick much easier if you put a bit of work into it! :thumbs_up:

Taken at the Babalala Picknickspot near Punda Maria in the KNP. They never sit still and Mads had the better luck to get the photo last weekend (2 Oct 2011).

(I also took a photo of such a bird a few years ago at Mount Amanzi near Hartbeespoortdam.)
