Also think this last one is Familiar Chat.

Since I am here, can I ask for a few more?

These were all seen at the Blyde River Canyon resort in September.

I'd also at first thought that the following two (which might in fact be the same bird, as the pix were taken at the Nossob hide about 2 minutes apart) were also chat flycatchers, but then I noticed the darker edges to the tail on bird #3 and began to wonder whether one or both of these (especially if they are the same bird) might be familiar chats?

The 2nd and 3rd birds, look like the same, much slender and smaller bills, have white eye rings and an orange tail...look like pale familiar chats to me!

Yet again, I'm not sure whether this is a familiar chat or a chat flycatcher, altho I'm leaning towards familiar chat. Seen in KTP in February 2010 — and very far away so also very cropped.

The pic doesn't really give a lot to ID the bird on but I'm pretty sure it's a Familiar Chat. You can see the reddish tinge to the outer rectrices.

Thanks, deefstes, your input is always appreciated — especially with such a really poor image, with very little to help with ID. :redface:
