Hello formites! I hope your are all doing well . Selous it's Ok & it is full of baby impala everywhere you drive you get them.
The white crowned lapwings that we are having here they tend to look much different with other lapwings especially feet colour,their feet usually it's yellow,but the one we are seeing here their completely greenish on their feet.
What might be making the differences colour on their feet?

Best regard fr; whiteman John

This colour does seem to vary and is not strictly yellow as such, I see even pictures shown in the Roberts PC program show mostly with greenish legs in the KNP chobe and a few other places in fact there they appear to be mostly this colour tone while the wattled are destinctly yellow legged.

I do appreciate for the good answer wingman, actually it was really giving me headache especially on identification of their legs colour.
Book of east africa birds doesn't tell legs colour of white crowned lapwings,but birds of africa south of the sahara it is the one that am using & it does gives some details on legs colour .

Asante sana!
From,
Whiteman john.

Welcome back! :yaya:

The term 'gazelle' applies to small antelope such as impala and Thomson's gazelles. So there is no real difference, it is just a name.
Wildebeest and eland are also antelope, but one will not use the name gazelle for them.

Hi there :D

Good to have you around again :thumbs_up:

I stand to be corrected, but I would say the the smallest antelope in Africa and the world, would be the Royal Antelope with a shoulder height of 25cms and a weight of 1,5kgs.
