I also wondered LS :hmz:

It looks like a bird in the second pic, to me at least.

Second one, yes - I thought so as well. But the first one looks odd for a bird. :?

Oh well, I guess it's gonna stay one of those mystery critters. :wink:

Could this be an AWC? It's not a BBJ.

Is this bird Cape Crow (Corvus capensis)?

It's a redwinged starling.

Thank you chirinda :D
I have never seen Red-winged Starling in any African webcams.
I am pleased that I found here. :D

Hi Dono,

A warm welcome to posting on the forums!

I can remember two or three lion sightings on the Addo Cam. Quite a low number, yes, but Addo contains very few lions and the cam is only recently installed.

Orpen, on the other hand, has seen many, many lion visits - not to mention the multitude of other great sightings.

Enjoy the cams,

Tom

This looks rather like a dog to me.

The colouring looks right.

Deeds, that does look interesting. Were it Nossob, I would have assumed Brown Hyena. I am curious about what people think. It seems to have rather a shaggy coat and rather low on the ground..
The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.
