Yellow Billed Oxpecker

Unread post by Yoda » Wed Dec 11, 2013 2:38 pm

Hi,

Appologies if this has been covered before
Have had a quick look, but can't find a thread

From memory, YB were released in the north of Kruger and are slowly moving south
What is the furthest south that they have been seen?
And are they regularly seen at this location?

Thanks
Yoda

Thanks Lion Queen.
I see I have asked this question already :redface:

Memory aint what it used to be :slap:

When I was much younger I really used to be into my birding.
Not so much now.
But a YB is on my wants list for my visit to Kruger this December

Hope you find your Yellow-billed Oxpecker Yoda! We are also searching for one every time we go to KNP, but to no avail! Luck is not on our side! :doh:
