Hi, I need a lot of help identifying birds! I've got lots and lots of birds that need identification! But I´ll start with 14. I'd be very glad if you could help me. It would also help if you get tell me how you identified them.
Thanks :thumbs_up:

All of them were seen in the south of Kruger.

Ps. If you need more pic's of the same bird, just ask.

Great learning thread this! Thanks PL and Barcud! :clap: I actually got the White Cormorant and the Woolly-necked Stork right, but didn't have the confidence to go ahead and ID it. Now I feel inspired!! :dance: :dance: :dance:

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:
