I will agree with a jackel on the further one but not sure about the second one to the right. what does the pic before and after show might have a better few 30 sec before or after.
I live in my own little world. But it's okay they know me here.

Black backed jackals.

They hang around the camp all the time.

Very hard to tell, but there were lions inthe area earlier in the day.

White bird, possibly barn owl or spotted dikkop, both of which I have seen there..

:hmz:


Normally Crested Guinea Fowl are only seen in the very north of Kruger, but maybe they got lost!!!
I haven't seen the photo, so can't comment there!!! :thumbs_up:

The guineafowl pics which were posted shortly before 11 am Saturday at Orpen are helmeted guineafowl. They are common throughout the park. Crested guineafowl have a fluffy feathered 'hat' and are usually seen only in the far north of Kruger. I have still to see them myself. :D
