Bird on post

Unread postby sun bird » Wed Dec 01, 2010 8:16 pm

Hello all,

This is my first post and I guess that the question I have has already been answered but I can't find it!

What is the bird that sits on the post under the Addo cam? He/she is so patient!

Hi sun bird :D

Welcome to the forums. The bird is a brownhooded kingfisher.

Thank you so much Toko :P

I never realised that kingfishers could be nocturnal!

Learning so much about the wildlife of South Africa. Roll on September for the second (and hopefully not the last) Kruger visit.

Wow - you are looking forward to a Kruger trip :mrgreen: Look out for a Brown-hooded kingfisher there as well.

This kingfisher can be seen very often there perching on the post scanning the ground for food. They do not feed on fish but eat mainly insects and lizards. Males have black feathers on the shoulder, the females being brown. So I think our kingfisher is a male. The cam watchers named him KIBO.

So lovely to see one in colour.

We saw so many birds this year in the Kruger (and all the game you could wish for). I can't believe we're so excited already about the trip. Bridging the gap with webcams...............

Hi, Panekoek. :D

No one has mentioned that we have a black rhino on the Addo webcam that became such a regular the forumites named him Bennett.

Hey Vaughng, cheetahs are rarely seen on the cams. Here are two pics of the Nossob Cam:

Looks like two different animals somehow and in the second pic it looks like a AWC kitten or a mongoose. :lol:

What do you think, is it an Owl in the first two pics? It seems it was there the whole night and then took off, just before the bird in the third pic arrived (well for me it looks different to the first one). :hmz:

It looks more like it could be a heron in all of the images.

It's legs are too long to be an owl, it is a long way off from the top of the dead branch.
