My sister took these photos this week in Winterton KZN. The 1st one was in her garden with the Village weavers. It's orange face is confusing though.
The 2nd photo, again apart from the orange looks like a Common Fiscal.
Just come back from South Africa and having trouble ID ing this bird. It was at Cathedral Peak. It's a juvenile I think. It was quite large. Initial thoughts were an eagle of some type, but looking back at the photo it doesn't have feathered legs! Considered Jackal Buzzard, but it seemed larger...
The beak seems to have a pale cutting edge. I think this suggests the Marsh Tit. It's hard to tell from the angle of the photo how far down the nape the black cap goes, as this can help in telling them apart. I'm far from an expert though I'm afraid. I struggle, in the field, to tell them apart...
Having trouble with warblers!!!!
The first two photos are the same bird. Photo 3 and 4 are a different bird, and bird 5 was taken yesterday.

Any help with ID would be great, thanks in advance!!!

These were taken in late October, on my first trip to South Africa

This was the 100th bird that I saw on my trip in October. Unfortunately I wasn't quick enough to get the photo of the parent passing the caterpillar to this youngster. I was thinking it's a Bearded Woodpecker, but I'm not sure.
I have a few birds that I'm either unsure of the ID or I have no idea!!!! I visited in late October. This is my very first post, so I'm not sure if my photos will even be attached, or the order they'll show up in. Some photos aren't great quality either!
The birds in flight, I think one is...
Hi everyone, I've been a birdwatcher for about 10 years (although I still feel like a beginner!!!). I've done all of my birdwatching in the UK until this year, when I visited my sister in South Africa. I have a fair few unidentified birds from my trip that hopefully some of you can help me with...
