I'm struggling to separate Black and young Yellow-billed Kites. These pictures are all from Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe.

Any tips for separating the two species?

West Australian Waders

Hi everyone, a couple of queries about waders from Perth, WA.

1. Red-necked Stint?
2-5. Sharp-tailed Sandpiper? I have little experience with this species - how can Pectoral be ruled out?

Thanks,

Here's a photo showing where the heron was seen. You can (barely) see the heron on the top of the trees, in the center of the picture. The wildlife center is to the left of this spot.
