You'd be surprised by what I CAN see - it all depends on what I just smoked, and how cheap it was!

Good call on the Grey Go-away-bird! :thumbs_up:

It could of course also be Ludwig's Bustard but I would rather put money on it being the more common Kori.

Tilandi-Looks like a White-backed Vulture: if you consider the light cream-colour of the back and black secondary wingfeathers of the last pic. They are also the more common vulture in KNP. In the first and second pic the white long neck is also a clue.

Hi Tilandi! Looks a bit big for any type of scops-owl. I think it might be a Verreaux's (Giant) Eagle-Owl.

Tilandi - I agree with JoelR that it looks like a Verreaux's/Giant Eagle-owl. Reason being the very large size, from this far the chest appears uniform(not obvouisly barred or spotted as for Spotted or Cape) and the white wingbar is very obvious especially in pic1-with Spotted the white appears not this obvious. Well caught!
