    Is this a buff-spotted flufftail? (Kruger National Park, South Africa)

    Hi everyone, From Lower Sabie (Kruger NP, South Africa), 26th and 27th January 2022. Calling started after a heavy sunset shower and continued well into the night. When I went out to investigate the bird seemed to be within some dense thickets behind our tent. Despite a thorough investigation...

    Leucistic (albino?) bird from Queen Elizabeth National Park

    thanks both for your comments. the plump shape is indeed reminiscent of white-eyed slaty and those legs do look rather pink - nice to know that it could well be a genuine albino. a cool sighting though, whatever it is :)

    Leucistic (albino?) bird from Queen Elizabeth National Park

    Hi everyone, I'm guessing the bird in question is leucistic not albino because the bill is blackish-grey - honesty have never seen either before so not sure. As for an ID, when I first saw it I thought some sort of flycatcher and I suppose that is what I still think it is. Though I understand...

    A couple of Ugandan sunbirds

    Hi everyone, 1. Queen Elizabeth NP, Ishasha Sector Either male Purple-banded or Marico (Mariqua), but I lean towards the former. 2. Broadbill Forest Camp, Bwindi NP, Ruhija Sector Not sure on this one. Maybe female Northern Double-collared? They were pretty approachable but apologies for...

    Audio ID - Uganda

    Hi everyone Travelling through Uganda in June this call became pretty familiar but I don't recall seeing the songster in the act. Eventually I made this recording, taken about 15 minutes after sunset near Kibale National Park. Any suggestions much appreciated Thanks

    Robin ID - Uganda

    Hi everyone, Scrub-robin from Lake Mburo NP, Uganda (June 2021). I think it matches pretty nicely with Stevenson and Fanshawe's description of Brown-backed, but I guess I would like another opinion to decisively rule out White-browed. Thanks

    Honey Buzzard South Africa

    Hello everyone, I think the bird on this link (to iNat) might be a European honey buzzard. The image is from near Johannesburg and dated 21 June. In the conversation, I'm "sitszasadam". Someone else has suggest circus, but hoping that some of the experts here might be able to help - I know...

    Black Cuckoo(?) - South Africa

    Hi This black bird was very distant and the images are all heavily cropped. To me looks like the wrong shape for drongo/black flycatcher and there is no yellow gape which would have indicated male black cuckooshrike. I think this only leaves black cuckoo? From Jan. 2020. Kruger National Park...
