Your Kruger List - 2015

Unread post by Yoda » Thu Jan 08, 2015 10:10 am

After my December visit, I am now at 108

I have a few brown small eagles/raptors and a few others to identify from photos.
Which I will hopefully do over the weekend.

Well thanks to a certain naggy birder I have finally worked out my Kruger list as well as my life list. I was a bit surprised that I had seen so few birds in Kruger but I guess its because we are not acting like dedicated birders when we go there and also I am apparently lacking the LBJ lobe in my brain so I am lobally-challenged when looking at small brown feathery things that fly away as we stop. . . .

Anyway, my Kruger list stands at 294 and holding . . . .

I hope you put an X on the car at the spot so you can take me there!
