Hi Ducklings
My brother gave me Faansie Peacock's book - Chamberlain's LBJ's
This book will help you with your LBJ ids Maybe not after the fact but if you determine what you are likely to find in a spesific area this will most certainly help uo to prepare for your trip

Something from the book
Almost a quarter of Southern Africa's bird species, and half of its endemics, are LBJ;s. All birders experience some degree of trepidation when confronted by Ornithologicum nightmariensis, and this ipotentially confusing group is shunned by most beginners and many experienced birders too. However, LBJs include some of the region's most spectacular, thrilling, interesting, sought-after and memorable birds. This eagerly anticipated new book, four years in the making, will not only help you to confidently identify LBJs, but also understand and enjoy these remarkable birds.


Try www.lbjs.co.za

We are using "Sasol's SA LBJs made simple" by Doug Newman and Gordon King, but I cannot say that I find it "simple"! :lol:

Thanx Umlati and well done to you too :gflower: :gflower: :gflower:

It might still be beginners luck mixed with the new Roberts on the I-pad... :tongue: :tongue:

The Robert's photos combined with the sketches are super use full. I have the Fransie Peacock - Chamberlain's LBJs book too, but I've found I don't even understand the language it was written in.... :tongue: :tongue:
