Agreed!

Never met Laine or even chatted in the forum, but if Wildgardenman says she exists, that's good enough for me... :wink:

Congrats, Laine!

Well done Laine :clap: :clap: Extra special that I was also there to add the same 2 birds to my list, which now moves up to 535 :D :D

This beauty was the special bird that allowed me to reach my 2013 target of 535, so now I will relax until 2014 :D :D :wink:

Lovely TrevorC. I have only seen them skulking under undergrowth trying to give you as lousy a pic as they can!

OK 226. went through the Newmans and counted as I went now there's little totals written in the corner of the page that is going to confuse the husband(wonder how long he'll take to come and ask what they are)

pnm --- thanks for the advise will use that idea Pic now Id later.

another confuse
Hubby: "Angle why do we have all these pics of grass and bushes"
Me:"because there's a LBJ under the bush that I need to ID"
Hubby: "a what?"
Me: "never mind I'll do the editing of the pics..... growl growl.... now how many pics has he allready deleted" )

Sorry NetEk had a monologue....... :tongue:

Hey, NetEk - thought that monologues were restricted to this household :twisted: Glad we're not alone!

New total now 398 (2 short of target :cry: )
Added the following after a trip to Chrissiesmeer and Swaziland:
Red-capped Lark; Olive Sunbird; Greater Double-collared Sunbird; Black Cuckoo and Diderick Cuckoo.

Thanks JvR, BB and Huntsman.
Got to start expanding the birding areas now. Getting tough to tick off new ones around here and in Kruger.
