Hi All

1. Egret Bill color wrong for a Little egret Neck shape wrong for a great egret?
2. Maybe a pair of Tawny eagles need confirmation
3. So many I just dont know
4. The red On the back of the neck confuses me
5. I have the feeling this is a Goshawk

3. Barbary possibly, not that I've ever seen one but seems pretty close to Perry but with rufous head, barring

I think # 3 is a Rednecked Falcon, will research a bit more though as I'm not as good with SA birds as my hubby (who is at work or he'd have posted)
Rach

Agree with Andrew for Ludwigs Bustard
