Are we Ducklings or Pre-ducklings :?

Yes might be an easy Bird challenge but I'm running out off pics Ialso lost a hard drive)
So unfortunately this is what I had , apart from the secretaries , bateleurs , kories etc
So if there is a volunteer to take over , feel free.

I'm busy finding more pics from friends

Hi Ducklings

Here are the answers to Sky 10

1) Southern Red-billed Hornbill
It killed this insect (don't know what it's called) and the swallowed it all in one go.
It looked quite uncomfortable afterwards

2) Grey crowned Crane - no problems
Image

3) Brown headed parrots seen at Girivana near Satara
we've seen them there just about eveytime we've visited the waterhole
Image

4) White Backed Vulture
Image

5) Red-breasted Swallow
Image

6) Blackwinged Pranticole
Image

7) Female Amur Falcon
Image

8 ) Levaillant's Cisticola
Image

9 ) Female African Stonechat
Image

10) Red-capped Robinchat
Image

and the BB
an African Pipit
