I'll make a guess:
1. tawny eagle

(also you really should be specific about which park when you ask for ID, as for many formumites, 'the park' is KTP :wink: )

OK didn't know about KTP being the park. :-) These were taken in KNP around croc bridge area on the way to Hippo pools.

I think no 1 is a Yellow-billed Kite, Bare legs, all yellow bill and deeply forked tail.

[color=#004000]Hi everybody.
I am new to birdwatching and need some help. On my last road trip I saw these birds but cant seem to make out what they are. I have got the Ilustrated Sasol bird book.
Please help :pray:
