Please can you guru's teach me the raptor's that live in WP.
I know some of the adults..it's the juveniles that make it tricky  ;)

I was watching the lady weaver feeding the young.

Then a couple of minutes later saw the Acacia Pied Barbet (Bonthoutkapper) entering their nests.

It is known that they do occasionally utilizes other birds nests.

Not the best of photos, but this was a new one for me, a Pied Kingfisher.
A beautiful bird to see live.
