South Luawnga plus Victoria Falls and Chobe

Recommended Posts

Starting this thread for birds (and blurds)  taken in Oct 2019 in Zambia, Zimbabwe near the falls, and Chobe along the river. I'm mostly going to need help with Raptors, waders (peeps), and little brown birds.

I'm going to start with South Luangwa, and probably an easy one: which hornbill? African Grey?

15 is Laughing and I think Cape Turtle (I don't have distribution maps extending into Zambia).

18 is three-banded Plover 

 

I think 1 is a Ruff, but I'm not sure.

2 and many of the others are female Weavers or Widowbirds. I find them all basically impossible to ID correctly.

That's what I'm afraid of. :(

1,3: Wood Sandpiper indeed.
2, 17: Impossible to say for sure but most likely Red-Billed Quelea
4: Yes, Common Greenshank
5: I´d say Yellow-Billed Kite
6: Weaver when out of breeding are very difficult. Most likely Village Weaver, one of the most common species, and nothing in the pictures totally excludes it IMO.
7: A  Common Sandpiper
8: I´d say Little Stint and not Ruff
9: Lapwing chicks of some kind I´d say.
11: Brown Snake Eagle seems like a good guess.
12: Bronze Mannikin and again, impossible to safely say, but maybe Lesser Masked Weaver (note the light eyes)
13: Kittlitz´s Plover, yes
14: Indeed, Red-Necked Spurfowl
15: Cape Turtel aka Ring-Necked Dove (yes, range is good) and Laughing Dove, agree with Peter.
16: Again, not sure, maybe Village Weaver again, and I´m not totally excluding female Red-Headed Weaver
18: Three-Banded Plover like Peter said.
