Purple Crested Turaco - Gonarezhou, 23-26 May    

African Green Pigeon - Gonarezhou, 23-26 May    

and here's our more frequently seen 'common' Pheasant     and Murphy's Law being all encompassing, on this occasion the bird was too close for my 300mm lens and I couldn't move further back.

Great photos and sightings Martin, but how sure are you about that Kingfisher being a Pygmy? Looks rather like a Malachite to me?

@@Soukous as the queen of misidentification, I hesitate to mention, but are you sure that your tawny eagle is not an immature African hawk eagle? Tawnies are not supposed to have banded tails and the photo looks almost identical to an AHE juvenile in Roberts'.....

 

P.s. Agree with @@Peter Connan re. Kingfisher

I agree with you about the kingfisher, @@Peter Connan and @@Tdgraves

That was my first thought too, but our guide insisted it was a Pygmy.

 

I'll also concede on the Tawny Eagle being a Hawk Eagle. :wacko:
