What is unusual about this bird?

Well, it was seen (photographed) in an area where they are not supposed to be - at Augrabies National Park about eight kilometres into the game reserve.

As posted by cybeR@NGER, who wrote:
Distribution: From southern Gabon to south-western Uganda. In southern Africa, largely restricted to north and east. In Namibia, restricted to far north; common in Caprivi. In Botswana, locally common in Okavango Delta and along Chobe River. Widespread throughout Zimbabwe and Swaziland. In South Africa, common only in lowveld woodland of NW and Limpopo Provinces, Mpumalanga and Kwazulu-Natal. Isolated populations in Free State/N. Cape along the Vaal, Modder, Riet and Vet rivers. Absent from arid and semi-arid Namib, Kalahari and Karoo, and from Lesotho highlands and Eastern Cape.


Roberts VII shows all the places the WFBE had previously been recorded and the Augrabies NP is about 400 km north-west of the closest record!

Hello birders,

working on my most recent pictures from Krugerpark I have to recognise:
The more I try the less I can!

I am still not able to identify some birds. Are you willing to help me?

Best regards,

Ludwig
