Otherwise this is a Burchell's coucal with dirty underparts...

Not sure what you mean by "serious detail", but I did fail to mention that it was seen on the S92 south of Olifants and on 25 April 2012. Since that's 4 months ago, I don't remember any further 'details' :wink:

@Elsa: thanks for that 'clue'!

I'll make a guess:

2. Burchell's coucal

(also you really should be specific about which park when you ask for ID, as for many formumites, 'the park' is KTP :wink: )

OK didn't know about KTP being the park. :-) These were taken in KNP around croc bridge area on the way to Hippo pools.

I agree with arks about 'the ' park, but with the others about the IDs.

The coucal, looks like it could be a Senegal.....

Go with Burchell's unless there is compelling evidence otherwise, as Senegal are found north of Kruger & sometimes stray in.

Hi everyone. Just returned from Kruger and clueless about some of my bird sightings as usual. Any help identifying these would be appreciated. All pictures were taken in February.


1. Near Lower Sabie- I was thinking maybe a Cuckoo or Burchell's Coucal?
