    Okhla under threat

    http://www.firstpost.com/business/govt-nod-to-eco-sensitive-zone-around-okhla-bird-sanctuary-to-help-noida-home-buyers-2397284.html Worrying (and for other protected areas) as this reduces the previous 'buffer zones' in place down to 100 meters on three sides.

    Knysna Warbler call

    Accipiter South Kruger Jan 2015

    Any help please on this one. It was called an African Goshawk by the guide, but looks more Chanting or Ovambo Sparrowhawk- a juvenile coming into adult plumage. I have a video of it, but not quite sure how to upload that. Many thanks

    Oh heck (or something)

    :h?: Well, I digested the thread on the Parus major superspecies and then ploughed (or is that 'plowed') my way through (or is that 'thru'....aagghh, stop it) the discussions on Anglo-U.S names (and as someone who's done three trips to eastern North America, I'm still only just recovering from...
