Spotted this Oxpecker at Carols rest. Pity we only saw the bird while going through the pictures in the evening after the trip, amazing how they blend in.

Some information:
I am a reserve manager and keen 'birder' and saw the first red billed oxpecker on our property about a week ago. We are neighbours to Addo's northern border and Kuzuko's eastern border. I found a nesting site and during daytime they feed on our cattle and I assume Kuzuko's game.
They are probably from the original released stock from Addo. The original birds are all ringed, so the colour of the ring is to identify the release area.

For those of you on facebook - there is a group called "Birds of the Addo Elephant Park" - just started. Join the group and add your bird sightings there too :)
