Re: Identification Help - Raptors

Thank you Ross. So this Harrier will remain an UFO :lol: :lol: :lol:

Here I have another strange looking raptor, also in Kgalagadi, also in November 2017.

Perhaps a Jackal Buzzard? (but never before seen one in KTP)

Another picture from November 2017 taken in Kgalagadi at Kij Kij Waterhole.


Pallid or Montagu Harrier?

Re: Identification Help - Raptors

Going through some old photos I found this one. Taken in October close to Shingwedzi.

Only one photo taken and no idea what this could be so once again I need your help.

Re: Identification Help - General Birds

This is why I was thinking of an immature Yellow-throated Longclaw.

Some adult birds were within a 10 m radius.

Re: Identification Help - General Birds

Another unidentified bird seen close to Lower Sabie on January 12.


My best guess is a young Yellow-throated Longclaw because of the yellowish underparts. Any idea?

Is this a red-billed Quelea? Seen close to Olifants on Jan 9.

Re: Eagle, Martial

Thank you Elsa

Interesting facts, so sad to read about the decline of this powerful raptor.

The last two visits to Kruger have seen and photographed some Martials feeding on monitors.

An impressive bull, could this be a named tusker?

Re: Identification Help - General Birds

Back from our latest trip and sorting out the first pictures.

Seen in Addo NP beginning of December 2023.

Is this an ordinary African Pipit, looks very pale.
