Thanks Micetta. In my bird books the adult is more yellow in colour so that is what confused me. :thumbs_up:

Hi DB,

Look for Wagtail, Pipit, Longclaw in the red section of the list - 4th from bottom. Took me a while the first time I looked also :doh:

Hi Guys

I am wondering if any of you can help me out with a few ID's as i am a complete novice. I am just about to do a full trip report but needed to confirm a few birds before i do so. I have about 12 so i will do them a few at a time so not to bombard you. Most of them are in Kruger but a few are outside. Many thanks in advance for any help! :D

No2 - This one was taken at KZN Wildlife INJISUTHI also in the Drakensburg. The bird was on the floor in the lower ground before the foothills of the Mountains. I reckon it might be a Juvenile yellow throated Longclaw but Im probably wrong?

I'd say:

#2 long claw is also correct: juvenile Cape long claw

Which Rietvlei? Nice pic.
