Hi huntsman, where the heck did you get that Pallid Harrier? I have been searching for it for years now without luck. :wall:

Saw it at least twice over three days at Barberspan, wildtuinman - almost guaranteed addition if you're in the area right now.

Definitely not a Montague's either, BTW... :whistle:

Shucks man, I am going to be nowhere near Barberspan anytime soon. :wall:

Very nicely done, huntsman!

Oh and by the way, White-backed Night-Heron takes me to 632.

Wow, Johan! You are really giving it sticks, hey!

I am on 636 after White-backed Night-Heron, Pallid Harrier, Rufous-bellied Heron and Crowned Cormorant.

Nice year for pics since I got my digital friend...

Up from 2 to 214 (some of them were even focussed)

Going out on a limb with 2014 target: 300 by year end. :pray: :pray:

I actually read for the first time about a Bird Photography List on this thread. Of course, it makes sense! So started organizing all my bird photos (which took a while... :whistle: ) and took some more pics over the holidays, and now I've also got an official Bird Photography List! :D You can add me at 274! :thumbs_up:
