Hello birders,

working on my most recent pictures from Krugerpark I have to recognise:
The more I try the less I can!

I am still not able to identify some birds. Are you willing to help me?

Best regards,

Ludwig

Identification Help - LBJs

Unread post by Rookie » Tue May 15, 2012 9:18 pm

I was in Addo at the end of April and saw a number of LBJs which I would like help with.

I did manage to ID some of the birds, but the LBjs just drive me mad. :twisted:

Thanks guys!!

I'm sorting through my bird pics trying to find how many different species I have pics of and have a few I simply can't ID.
Any help would be really appreciated.
