Hi all, I have trouble to ID a few birds. The pictures were taken at Rietvlei Dam Nature Reserve. May I please post it here for help.

Have a nice weekend.

We saw these birds during a visit to Rietvlei Dam Nature Reserve in Pretoria. For others these must be common birds but we struggle to ID them. Sorry, not the best pics :cam: .

Could you please help.

and last
5. I thought this might be a female ant-eating chat.

THANK YOU!

Hi rarheeder and Welcome! (I see that you've joined long ago but have rarely posted :wink: )

Would agree that #5 looks likely for an anteating chat.

Let's see what the fundis say!

Here are several birds that I am struggling with. I have an idea for three of them but may be well off base. Any assistance is appreciated...

huntsman, can you perhaps tell us where and when you saw these birds, location and time of year are helpful information needed for ID.

Second one looks like a Female Anteating Chat.( I say female because they lack the white shoulder patch, and tend to have more brown coloration than the male)
