    Really great Webinar to watch on Buzzard ID now on You tube - Better Birding Webinars by Dave Winter and Mike Buckham
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6lJ...ature=youtu.be.

    Thanks Rob for pointing out 2 males

    Just got an email that their next Webinar is on 28 August
    Hi Birders,

    We are going to run our next webinar on Wednesday 28 August at 20h00 (not at 19h30).

    The topic of the webinar is:

    The Birding Sights and Sounds of the Karoo
    We are going to use the Karoo, with all its beauty and high levels of endemism, as a back-drop to focus on how to bird both by sight and by ear. Birds are fantastic to look at, (even the LBJs) so we are going to take you on a tour of the Karoo while discussing some of the ID challenges one could face, but we also plan to focus on the calls. Birding by ear is a very underrated and highly rewarding way to experience birds so we want to share some of our experience on this topic.

    If you have an ID question related to a Karoo species please do share it before the webinar, and feel free to share the following link with anyone that might enjoy the webinar series: https://forms.gle/ujrbmuGVQRNuNz2u5

    Just a couple for Woodpeckers to confirm ID please

    1) cardinal - juv ? pilanesberg
    2) golden tailed umfolozi
    3) golden tailed moremi

    If I don't see the brown forehead of the cardinal I mix them up with the golden - the barred versus streaked backs are not always clear

    Thanks

    Happy with all 3 ID's.

    I think your Cardinal is a female, not juvenille.

    Grey hornbill! Beautiful Bushveld bird, I'm surprised they've made their way to Joburg already.

    Thanks Suzuki Piet - long time no hear. Watching the buzzard webinar helped. The Forest Buzzard does not occur in Etosha (so i am safe), but not sure if I would of being able to differentiate between the two if the sighting was the coast.

    What do you guys think?
    Images near Piper Pan waterhole CKGR.
    Size very large - chased a Bateleur off this perch.
    Underside totally white.
    Very fluffy white booties.
    Dark eyes - not yellow like the Tawney
    Amazing rufus coloured head
    Thinking some strange morph of a Booted Eagle but maybe too big.

    Regards
    Frank

    I'm birding in Queensland, Australia these days. Many challenging new bird species!

    Agree with shfish - Juvenile Tawny. Slit nostril, sturdy bill.
