I haven't seen these raptors in ages, and it's killing me to know what they are!

The top one is a secretary bird. Harder to tell on your group of 3, but likely also secretary birds.

Both pics are of secretary birds. They have been on Nossob cam almost constantly for the past fortnight, usually alone or as a two. First time I have seen 3 in one shot! :clap:
