I agree with arks about 'the ' park, but with the others about the IDs.

The coucal, looks like it could be a Senegal.....

Go with Burchell's unless there is compelling evidence otherwise, as Senegal are found north of Kruger & sometimes stray in.

Hi everyone. Just returned from Kruger and clueless about some of my bird sightings as usual. Any help identifying these would be appreciated. All pictures were taken in February.


1. Near Lower Sabie- I was thinking maybe a Cuckoo or Burchell's Coucal?
