Hi just went through some photos and I think this might be a Southern-masked Weaver female?

Sorry Batty didn't add that its in Bloem, so it's either Southern-masked Weaver or maybe the Southern-red/Yellow-crowned Bishop

Batmad,
It's most likely a female Red Bishop. This bird has a yellow eyebrow, a pinkish bill and pinkish legs. a Thick-billed female doesn't have an obvious eyebrow, the bill is very heavy and yellow-brown and the legs are dark.

Hello there,

If anyone can confirm these sightings for me, it would be greatly appreciated! They were all seen in KNP in September 2009.

These next one, I am not sure of:

4.

Hi Guys

I am wondering if any of you can help me out with a few ID's as i am a complete novice. I am just about to do a full trip report but needed to confirm a few birds before i do so. I have about 12 so i will do them a few at a time so not to bombard you. Most of them are in Kruger but a few are outside. Many thanks in advance for any help! :D

Here is the first little Tinker. I saw him on a fence near Hlatikhulu Crane & Wetland Sanctuary in the Drakensberg. It was next to arable fields. Im guesing its a juvenile bishop of some sort but im not sure at all:

Number 1

I'd say:

#1 bishop is correct, specifically, a male red bishop in transitional plumage

Another than has me mystified. Perhaps a female red bishop (altho I didn't see any males about)? :hmz: Or a canary? Or ..... ??? Seen at MZNP on 15 September 2011.

Going thru some left-over 'mystery bird' pix from 2010 :roll:

The first was seen on Darling Hills Road in October 2010. Altho I can't actually see the yellow rump in these pix, I'm thinking that this might be a female yellowrumped widow?

Did this query just get overlooked or are these doomed to remaind mystery birdies?
