Courser, Bronze-winged Courser

We saw a lot of these little birds during our nightly drives between Shingwedzi and Batleur during the KNP Birding Weekend. This is however the only photo I could get of one of them.

Hey francoisd so glad you posted a pic of this little fella. My son is convinced he saw one on our property the other night...so I'm planning to go sit up there one night to get positive id to add to my bird list and a photoif I'm lucky. Rather a cute little guy hey!

I am not sure if I am permitted to post "non-SANParks" photographs on this forum. Could the forum moderator please "call me to order" if it is not permitted?

Thanks!

These guys are all over the Biyamiti Area.....As wel as Senegal Lapwing...The Private Road going past the camp...A sure bet for both..Obviously The Courser most likely at dusk, but often near the Resivoir resting amongst the Lapwing during the day.

On Myunwini road .
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.
