So I have just started keeping a Kruger list recently, and am a relative beginner to birding in general, and after my short stay the other day I am at 162. I am having loads of fun birding though, and hope I can also reach 300+ one day :D

With at least two more trips planned this year, I hope I can break 200 by year end :D

Welcome Awake.

Nice to see a growing list of birders at all levels. We all had to start somewhere.

It is always a joy to see some of the same Kruger birds time and again, and to add new ones of course.

The news that a lesser jacana was seen at the Skukuza golf club had me bunking today... Worth the tribulations as I found the bird (after a while...) right in front of the clubhouse! Takes my KNP list up to 376.
728 Latest lifers: Hartlaub's babbler, Coppery-tailed coucal, Red-billed spurfowl, White-browed coucal, Scharlow's turaco, Copper sunbird, Long-toed lapwing, Eastern bronze-naped pigeon, Malagasy pond heron, Soft-plumaged petrel, Orange-winged pytilia.

Good morning all. I very new to birding, only just started to take it seriously. My list currently stands at around 102 photographed birds. If I may ask. If a bird has 2 forms such as a Dark and Pale forms or natural and Rufous, do you count that as 1 type of bird or 2. Recently added for example the pale form of Tawny eagle to my list, and not sure if I now have 1 or 2 birds (having the "traditional" form on record already),.

Many thanx
Horrace

Welcome to the joys and frustrations of birding Horrace. Mainly joys I hope.

Unfortunately you can only count a species once, no matter how it presents.

My first gabar goshawk sighting was the 'normal' one sitting on a branch next to the dark form one. One tick only.

Still, on 102, you have a lot more potential WOW moments left than those of us who have a few more.

Enjoy them.
