SLIGHTLY CONFUSED QUIZ (OQ)

Unread postby Imberbe » Tue Jul 11, 2006 10:49 pm

Please help me! On our recent visit to Kruger we took some 1000 plus photos. On some of them it is quite difficult to identify the species. I am quite confused! Can you help me identify these species?

I will publish the photo and wait for four or five suggestions, before I will try and match the photo with another photo, which might be a little more obvious. :wink:

I must tell you Imberbe, you made me do a double take when that picture downloaded. :shock:

After recovering I would have to agree with everyone and say Marabou Stork
