insanebushie's Q & A
Thank you very much Bushie, you have a nice evening
Your first question the white line along the breast would certainly indicate a painted snipe, the picture is not clear enough to see the white eye colour.
The second question, all four of those pictures are Black-headed Heron if you look at picture number two you will see the black line behind the neck the legs of the black-headed Heron are also dark grey where as you Grey Heron has light yellow legs and only the head crown has black markings.
Hope this helps have a nice day
Can you sort out these Herons for me. I thoght that this one was Grey
and thisa one possibly Black-headed
What do you think?
Can you ID this one for me. I'm wondering if it is a Painted Snipe?
Thank you bushie
Thank you Bushie
Hi Moffer I have to say that this is a tawny eagle adult in the top picture, anyone else got any ideas I had originally thought perhaps a Wahlbergs but the cere is not right for it and the yellow colour extends to far back..... Bushie
Hi Pingu This is a wattled starling, males look very different in breeding season and get black wattles and face becomes a yellow colour Bushie
Hi Moffer Yes these are indeed bee eaters they are european bee eaters and are a common site here in southern africa in summer between September and april Hope this helps Thanks Bushie
