Korhaan: Southern Black Korhaan

Unread post by francoisd » Tue Sep 26, 2006 12:05 pm

This one was photgraphed in West Coast NP

Wildtuinman posted a photo of the Northern Black Korhaan here and as you can see they look very similar. You should however not easily confuse them as their ranges does not overlap.

In flight the Northern BK shows extensive white in the primaries (the feathers near the wing tip)

In my experience you'll NEVER get this close to a Northern BK!
