Hi Ducklings

Here are the answers to Sky 13

1 ) Blue Crane
Image

2 ) Male Thick-billed weaver

Image

3 ) Shelleys Francolin

The bird that it was confused with was the Sabota lark. The Sabota lark lacks rufous on it's wings
The Rufuas-napes Lark also has a small erectile crest

Image

5 ) White-winged Widowbird
Image

6 ) White-throated Robin-Chat

Image

and it's juvenile the BB
Image

7 ) Spooted Flycatcher
Image

8 ) Paradise flycatcher
Image

9 ) African Openbill

Image

Thanks to everyone that entered
