I love the plaintive call of the grey hornbill - so evocative of the bush.

I have to agree with you WAC, there are so many it is difficult to
choose, but living in the Free State my choice is more limited, so
I have to say at home it is the 'Cape Robin Chat'. When at Kruger in
the summer, I love the 'Woodland Kingfisher', and for the evenings
I have to agree with the weird avvie'd serval :lol: 'Fiery necked nightjar'

I didn't think people concentrated on the people in the pic .
At least I can at the same time also crop the telephone poles .
Done , your family can now stop perving ...

Definitely the African Scops Owl while sitting around a "hardekool" (lead wood) fire in the bush...prrt-prrt...I hope that is the one I'm thinking about. :thumbs_up:

My Wife calling me outa bed saying the coffee is ready :P

In all hosently, Scops Owl at night and during the day - I think it is some type of dove, you allways hear it on african wildlife programs. Might be the Mourning Dove, I dont have speakers with me so its kinda difficult to hear.

Probably green spotted dove ? (alternative name emerald spotted wood dove - often seen flying up off the quieter dirt roads)

Alright, I'll break the ice :whistle:

The African Fish Eagle, it has to be the best sound in Africa, followed closely by the Kuduzela. :wink:

For me it's the Yellow Billed Hornbill. When I go through the tunnel on the way to Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa, I cannot wait to see and hear the first Hornbill. When I hear them, I know that paradise is just around the corner.

For me also the African Fish Eagle - known here as Inkwazi. I live close enough to the Tugela river to hear them, if not see them.
