Hey Mark I think this is a Black Widow finch as it has red legs and the beak is not black and long like the Glossy Starling, it has the right glossy green black colour of the Black Widow finch. They are found up North east of S Africa and down to East London and Port Elizabeth along the coast. My thoughts :mwink:

ID of above bird:

Common (European Starling) (Sturnus vulgaris) # R757

A smallish, dark starling with white spots and a slender pointed bill. Size 20-22 cm - smaller than a Laughing Dove, much larger than a sparrow.  Afrikaans: Europese Spreeu

The Common Starling is an urban bird, mainly of the southern parts of the country. The bill is short conical and tapered to a sharp point. The bill is yellow (breeding) or greyish. The legs and feet are reddish-brown.

The Common Starling is completely blackish or brown, with small white spots covering most of the body. In breeding plumage, the spots are smaller, and not as visible - especially on the head, and the metallic green or purple sheen is more visible. The flight feathers are edged with buff, giving the wing a scaled appearance.

The bill is longer and more pointed than other starlings, and the tail appears short. It is also smaller than other starlings.

This is an introduced (alien) species, which has colonised towns and cities in the South-western Cape , the Eastern Cape . Also occurs but is less common in the Northern Cape , Free State and parts of KwaZulu-Natal. It is a common and abundant bird, found mostly in towns, where it is likely to be seen in gardens, in parks and adjacent farmland.

In the breeding season (summer) they are likely to be seen in pairs and small groups. In the non-breeding season, it forms large flocks, which may be seen on lawns and playing fields. It has a jaunty stride, with long swaggering steps, and walks actively around on the ground.

Common Starlings eat fruit, seeds, insects, spiders and worms.

The call is a rambling series of squeaky sounds, whistles, swizzles and phrases of imitations of other birds.

They nests from September to December. In areas where they are common, the laying may be highly synchronised. The nest is a loose bowl of grass, pine needles and straw, lined with fine grass, feathers, wool and moss. It is placed in a hole in a wall or tree, under the eaves of a building or in pipes or gutters.

Below some photo's to support identification with MH's excellent photo.  Note especially the yellow beak, shortish tail, pinkish legs and white spots on the upper body that distinguish it from the other starling offered as possible candidates.

I think it is, It was at the "croc sanctuary" in St Lucia.

We were staying at Odd Ball island in the delta when I took that pic, and the singing that the bird made was what made me go investigate. Glad I did.

Some Pics from my time working in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in 2005. all taken with a old EOS 500n Film Camera nd then scanned to PC.

(http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/i399/Anvilracing/Picture112.jpg)

My first night as a a Game Ranger in the Kalahari and this guy came to say hi.

(http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/i399/Anvilracing/Picture108.jpg)

I stood by this old lioness for about 40 min parked no more than 3 meters from her and talking to her about life and everything that a 21 year old could think was important in life. I f I dropped down from mars and saw this lion I would never have thought they could hurt a fly. I left her there as I had to get back to camp and the pressing issue's of life...

(http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/i399/Anvilracing/Picture104.jpg)

I think I even sang to her at some point.......

(http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/i399/Anvilracing/Picture120.jpg)

You wont C it, but we just darted this boy on the butt cheek. He had been raiding cattle in Namibia 3 times before and we had to fetch, boma and relocate him 4 times before this. We traveled 11 hrs on the back of a bakkie from Twee rivieren to Mabua to drop him off........2 months late he was shot near Bokspits for killing cattle a 200km journey.

(http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/i399/Anvilracing/Picture121.jpg)

I followed this scene early morning. At the otherside of the dune was leftover Ostrich. Back then film was expensive for a student so I didn't take pictures of the whole scene, but the rest of the track dissapeared of a 4 m drop.Must have been like an action movie seeing it happen

In my business I often get some "big" guys picking a fight....!!!

Here are 2 Addo Bull Elephants that were very inquisitive..., whilst the third stood behind us...!!!

Was an amazing experience.

Not great photos but at the time I had no option but to point the "mik & druk" and hope.

The one Bull came so close to us that his Tusk scratched the door of my Landy..!

Title: Re: Some wildlife Photo's (add yours)
Post by: Andy Tastic on September 08, 2011, 08:49:58 pm
When we saw the Bull Elephants, I had to take a photo...! Funny thing was that when I looked again, they were on a "mission" in our direction. I started reversing the Landy but next thing a little "hire" car had blocked our escape, with the young German couple both sitting in the backseat, frightened out of their wits.

At that stage I thought the best would be to sit tight and not move. These two Guys came at the vehicle and then scraped past on both sides but showed little aggression other than being very inquisitive. However, when anybody in the Landy moved they "eyed" us out.

In the meantime, another Bull came out the bush behind us and they just stood watching us. When I started moving the Landy forward, away from them, the bigger Bull came at us very aggressively. I only stopped again when we were quite far away.

One of the Park Rangers told us later that these are 3 Kruger Bulls that were translocated to the Addo and were still not disciplined by the other "resident" Addo Bulls yet.

Oh, we were also told that they hated green Landrovers because similar Landys were used to chase them down in the Kruger when they were darted...!!!

About a month after this experience, I was back in the Addo with Guests and one of these Bulls had an altercation with the most senior Bull Elephant in Addo, at the Domkrag Waterhole and killed it by knocking it over and then driving its tusk into the other Bulls brain. We arrived there shortly after it happened and I have to say it was really sad to see a Big Guy like that "in a pile".

The next morning we went back and the Elephants Tusks were gone...!!!!

Only after looking at the photos later at home on my PC did I realize how close those Guys came to us.

I was using (and still use) this camera: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_archived_product_details.asp?fl=&id=1367

Not an SLR, but a "megazoom bridge camera" - has a 26-520mm equivalent lens, but gets horribly soft & slow as you use the zoom.
Those pics were taken using it's "super macro" mode, which returns pretty decent shots.

I had to be in Phalabora too do some work at the mine which thankfully ended early in the afternoon. That meant I had about 3 hours to spend in the Kruger national park. So I grabbed my camera hoping that I might be lucky and find some wild life to photograph. I was told there is a water hole not far from the Phalabore gate and I might be able to see some animals there. Well it was late afternoon and the sun was shining so if anything I might get some good photos of the water hole and some sunset pics if there were no animals around. But I was hoping to get a pic or two of something have a late afternoon drink…….Today would end up being one of those days that will be very special to me. My luck was in big time.

Firstly the water hole wasn’t a water hole but a small lake. Secondly the elephants were there and in a playful mood. Also I was there alone except for one other bakkie which was parked some distance from me.

Small herd by the water

There were 5 young calf in the water and they were in their element, splashing water around, climbing on one another’s backs and …well just being kids and having fun

This little one was having a great time, I wish I was able to capture the pure joy that he was showing.

(http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/dd203/MooseMark/Animals/_DSC6349.jpg)

How more chilled can you get….

(http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/dd203/MooseMark/Animals/_DSC6379.jpg)

And then he came for his afternoon drink. I was so excited as this would be the first time I have been in the position to photograph a leopard in the wild. Unfortunately for me he chose the spot with the sun directly behind him and with the sun reflecting off the water. Well beggars can’t be choosers and I shoot off some pics.

I'm using a Sony Alfa 330 with a 75-300 lens that I got with the camera. I would love to up grade the lens to something decent. The lens is OK but it's saving grace is that both the camera body and the 2 lenses travel well on the bike. The other lens is a 18-55 but has plastics and not glass lens plates.

I introduced some new Blood. When I hunt I like to hunt on somebody elses Farm.  ;D I get very attached to the Animals on the Farm. It is odd, I know.

Right - lots of photographs from you from now on.
How do the animals react to the motorbikes? We can get closer to those on my daughter's farm than we can in a car or on foot.
No Bikes on the Farm yet but I am trying to figure out what to get that will be right for the terrain.

This was a remarkably placid jumbo, fortunately for the 2 loonies I had working with me. Funny how one reasons that a chain link fence is an adequate barrier. This fellow was less than 20m from the fence, probably closer to 15.

I had visions of winning a National Geographic competition with some wonderful action shots of the 2 loonies in full flight :biggrin:

If it were'n for these Breeders the most magnificent of each Race would be lost in a couple of Years. They take the best Genes and breed for a succesful Future for each Race. Without them Hunters will kill the Trophy Animals and reduce the Genepool to something which is much worse than you can imagine.

I know that. It is still a sad sight to see the tags on them. We should put the tags on the trophy hunters ears and let them walk around like that. I have no issue with hunting per se. It is the senseless killing to put a dead animal head or horns in your bar or lounge wall that is revolting. As if there is any skill involved - my arse. Modern technology makes it a doddle to kill even the most ferocious animal and half the time they are trapped in camps before being shot too..

No R he is not playing. That is most probably an old Bull or "Dagaboy" as they call them when they get kicked out of a Herd by a younger, stronger Bull. They don't venture far anymore and if possible, chill near Water where they reminisce about their Conquests over other Bulls and the Romantic Times they had with lots of young Cows ;D If you look closely, you will see his Right Horn in broken off at the Tip, his Tail is half torn, his left Shoulder looks like it had better Days, he has a Wound on the left Hip and there is a growth between the two Horns.

Don't see mine that was posted earlier. This leopard was agro after being caught in a Caracal cage. Not knowing that the cage will hold her in because of her aggressive behaviour she was darted from the vehicle.
When off loaded she saw us from the inside of the bakkie and lashes out to us while taking a video. Misses us by mm.

Did a Bontebok capture last week.

Some went to Table Mountain Nature Reserve and other were sold to private nature reserves in the area.

What an experience. Some of the bigger bontebok were very strong and getting them loaded onto the truck was quite a mission....that's after they were anaesthetise.

Ogaden, Ethiopia

We're doing some site rehabilitation and this fellow wasn't impressed with the D8 buggering up his hide-out. I only managed a snapshot of him in full flight and got one or 2 more with only his rear end and magnificent tail visible

Offshore I still wonder about that old battered Buffel and when you said he was not there the next time you went  , I hoped that he is merrily eating ,chasing lions and courting younger female buffels, hehe I can but wish.

I have been a hunter all my life and also culled game for a living when I was younger. Although some might think the two are not compatible, I love game and wildlife in general. I have strict hunting rules on my farm and I will not shoot from a vehicle as it teaches your game to be scared of vehicles, so when you drive close to game they will take off. To me that defeats the object as I get joy watching them as I go past. It took several years for them to realise that I mean no harm when I drive by and it is not uncommon to drive past kudu at a distance of 10m with them just watching the vehicle. The other day I saw a few kudu next to the road, stopped next to them, got out my phone, snapped a picture and continued on my way without them taking off.
This picture was taken with my cellphone at about 10m.

Die munisipaliteit hier by ons het onlangs 'n stuk veld naby ons woonbuurt skoon gemaak en erwe daar uit gesit.
Die ystervark het toe in die rivier lopie war deur my erf loop himself kom tuismaak. Elke aand hier net na twaalf begin die sports as hy die honde mal maak as hy hulle kos kom eet. Ons het gisteraand 'n vang hok gestel en hom gevang. Hy is vanoggend by die Daan Viljoen wiltuin vry gelaat

Het ook familie in Nam.  Alhoewel ons baie lief is vir hulle is dit vir ons moeilik om vir hulle te gaan kuier.  Dit vat te veel van ons tyd weg om te kuier waar ons eerder kon rondry in Nam.

Hier is so paar kiekies van die wildeperde naby Aus.

Dis baie mooi, ons het ook van hulle gekry buite Aus oppad na Ludritz... Ons geniet om net weg te breuk Nam toe. Baie lief vir my land, maar sal nie maklik weer daar gaan bly nie. Kuier net te lekker daar, die Kaap het my hart gesteel en my voete het vas gegroei hier  ;D

Dankie, Ja dit was op Hamerstein, ek het haar ook gevryf, toe flip party mense uit... Sy is n pragtige dier... by die cheetahs was die ander mense ook bang gewees om by hulle te gaan sit, Ek en my man was amper die enigste wat by hulle gaan sit het, toe kom daar 2 ander couples en sit n hele end weg, was vreeslik snaaks

My skoonma se sy weier om saam my na vriende se wildplaas te gaan waar daar leeus loop om die voertuig en so, want sy se ek sal hulle nie uit los nie en sal seker hulle roep om te kom le sodat ek hulle kan vryf.... HAHAHAHAHA sy praat in n matte die waarheid, ek nie bang vir wilde diere nie, respek hulle en weet hulle voel aan as mens bang is.  :peepwall:

I love genets, Offshore. Our neighbour had to lock his big ginger tomcat up as he had treed a poor genet and wouldn't allow it to escape

I was just reading today on the recent discovery that there are 4 separate species of giraffe and that it would appear they do not interbreed in the wild;

"The four recommended new species are the southern giraffe, with two subspecies, the Angolan giraffe and South African giraffe; the Masai giraffe; the reticulated giraffe; and the northern giraffe including the Kordofan giraffe and west African giraffe as subspecies.

Experts said the differences are as large as those between brown bears and polar bears."

Found this Mountain Rhebuck kid abandoned by its mother due to the severe drought we are experiencing.  Bottle raising it and he is nice and strong.

Title: Lionesses feeding on Young Buffalo
Post by: Ride Red on September 26, 2017, 02:02:37 pm
As i'm on my way far  south in the Greater Addo, I stumble on a heard off buffalo's acting very strange about something.
Approaching the heard I noticed all buffalo's fleeing, but one running in the opposite direction to a old bull taking a bath in the mud (dagga boy).
Out of the corner of my eye I saw what I hoped for, 3 female Kalahari lions on a young buffalo.
Second's later the female and the old bull return to the young being torn apart, after chasing the 3 lionesses in a circle for about 20 min,
the male gave up and the lions started to feast! :drif:
because of size this is my top one...

I was sitting today at a restaurant, outside under a tree, enjoying my smoke when suddenly something fell out of the tree on my left shoulder and off my shoulder. It felt like nothing that had previously fallen on me from the sky so I immediately turned to see what it was. Two lizards were entwined into each other, either fornicating the hell out of each other, or having a massive brawl. It went on like that for about two minutes. As it was quite chilly, their muscle actions were a bit retarded and did it look like slow motion at times.
