Awesome @@Tdgraves. I get them in my back garden too. This individual ambushes sparrows at one of the bird baths.   How many species are you up to for the year so far?

The Bunting, Woodpecker and especially the Bush shrike stand out in this batch!

All beautiful, but I especially like the Drongo - a hard bird to get good shots of.

Like the Kori Bustard. They had lots on the last farm I worked on but were quite shy. They only posed for the camera traps.

 

Congrats on being pithed upon.
