Also seen at Lake Panic in September 2005, early one morning. Seem like we were looking at the same bird cybeR@nger!

We saw one during the daytime on the low water bridge at Shingwedzi on Sunday. This was our first ever sighting. We took some great pictures, which l'll post when they are available.

It's a resident bird @ Lake Panic. I have seen it probably 85% of the time that I have visited the bird hide there.

Also seen in broad day light, a juvenile, wading around on the bank. I soon found the adult sitting next to reeds in the water.

Hello birders,

working on my most recent pictures from Krugerpark I have to recognise:
The more I try the less I can!

I am still not able to identify some birds. Especially starlings.
Greater blue-eared glossy starling or Cape glossy starling . . . . and so on?

Are you willing to help me?

Best regards,

Ludwig
