First cuckoos of the season

Unread post by chirinda » Sat Oct 25, 2014 8:33 am

I heard my first cuckoos this week. :dance: Piet my vrou was calling in Linden Johannesburg on Thursday 23rd October, and I thought I heard him a couple of days before but cannot be sure. Friday morning going to work I heard a Diederick calling. :D

And here in southern Kruger, we have seen the Black (Yip!) the Jacobin, the Levaillant's, the Diderick and the Red Chested :dance:

I heard a Piet my vrou about a week or so ago in our area. I haven't heard any Diedericks yet.
