I think those are Red Billed Quelea - they were flying around in large flocks when we were there 10 days ago, and stopping to drink at the dams.

see here for more on the birds

They are always in the park, but not always in such big flocks. Have a look at the link I posted above too.

I have noticed a flock of birds on Satara cam regularly lately, such as this capture of Satara cam here. It is hard to see details, but from what I saw when in the area last month, I think they are Wattled Starlings - link.

Will ask Phokela to send an alert to the Satara section ranger.

Can someone please tell me the name of the white lioness part of the Satara pride. We filmed her in January of 2016 and I can't remember :cry:

Welcome to the forum Iluvsouthafrica! :clap:

The white lion does not have an individual name but is part of the Shishangaan pride.

If you have a good pic of him, please do share it White Lion on the S100 :thumbs_up:

Q & C

Unread post by EElse » Fri Sep 29, 2017 4:56 pm

Hi Karin, can you tell me what type of bird that is? Or anyone else?

Is it a Verreaux's eagle (Witkruisarend) or is it a hen of some type? Can't quite make it out... :redface:
