Some lovely pictures here! :clap:

We recently saw a group of about 7 flying from tree to tree just North of Croc Bridge. Manage to geta shot of one (not as good as many on this thread though... :redface: ). Our first ID'ed sighting of these lovely birds!

There is currently good numbers of these birds to be found right throughout Kruger. Definitely one of the top 10 most common bird species at the moment.

Hello. I am having trouble identifying some of the birds I saw in May/June in Kruger. Any assistance in identification is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

4. A Shrike of some sort maybe?

Hi Sarafl,

I'm going to try my hand at this, but please, I'm a novice as far as bird IDs are concerned. I would, however, like to see whether I am right or wrong when an expert ID these for you. Here goes:

4. White-crested Helmet Shrike.
