Hi guys,

Thanks a lot! While working through our holiday photos (only about 2000 of them :lol: ), I ran into some other bird sightings which I don't know. You have probably already guessed that I'm not a bird specialist :)

Anyways, thanks for helping me out.

All birds are spotted between Olifants and Skukuza in Kruger.

4.It has a kingfisher beck, but that's all I got on this one

:D 2000 pics, thats a decent session!
I'm glad I can help you out, we are all in the learning curve. Do you have a field guide?
ok so here's what I think of your latest bunch

#4. Pied kingfisher (the only kingf. with only black and white colours, the giant kingf. also has black and white but with brown on the chest and underparts of wing depending on male/femalec and is larger by quite a bit)

Thanks guys,

No, don't have a field guide. One of those things you don't realize you're going to need while on holiday in SA. Looking back it would have been good to get one. Now I'm back in the Netherlands and fixing my photobook. Next safari will definitely include a field guide :lol:

As soon as I approach the Golden Gate/Addo part of my trip (working the pics) I'll probably have some more questions!

Hi, can I have your help on the ID of this bird? It was in the Okavango Delta in Botswana and it was over the water.

thanks

Definitely a Pied Kingfisher - a male because of the double vbreast-band
