Thanks PNF :gflower:
So I learned something new this morning and yes, it was about birds... I had to look closely to see the difference :thumbs_up:
So what is the difference between a Southern Bou Bou and a Swamp Bou Bou?

The Swamp Boubou has a pure white underside whereas the Southern Boubou has a rufous tail, underbelly and flanks.

coming from another Limpopo resident, that comment brought a smile to my face. I can also complain about the 'cold' but there are places where i will not go to simply because of the cold. i cannot handle the cold. get quite grumpy and moody.
