I was in Addo at the end of April and saw a number of LBJs which I would like help with.

I did manage to ID some of the birds, but the LBjs just drive me mad. :twisted:

Thanks guys!!

I'm sorting through my bird pics trying to find how many different species I have pics of and have a few I simply can't ID.
Any help would be really appreciated.

Hi Granjan, this picture is certainly an African Stonechat, and it looks to be a female. As JvR has said that regional variations are important, so in this case the bird is just more greyish than buffy. There looks to be some orange on the flanks.
