Gabon birds - ID Help wanted (1 Viewer)


Well-known member

The raptor photos (all the same bird) are from Lope national park, bird flying right above the hotel. I think it is juv/immature Ayres's Hawk Eagle, but not sure.

The small bird is from Mikongo, taken at night in the middle of the forest.
Yellow-browed Camaroptera??
Juvenile of some kind?

Not sure whether the "wattle"/eyering is over-emphasized by the flash. Through the bins it looked to me slightly more blue-ish and more like an eyering (and not a wattle) than on the photos.

Pictures taken August 2018.

Thanks for any help!
