Zvezda & Alex Big Year 2016 - first attempt

19 looks like a cloud cisticola
20 some kind of weaver!

 

19 is not a Cisticola (Seed eater Bill not insect eater.) Most likely Common Quelea.

20. Cape Weaver. (immature)

 

2. Certainly a lark and not a chat. (bill shape and size again.) Very dark and contrasty so best guess is Large billed Lark.

There is one more bird from Marienvale, South Africa. I am sure everyone is familiar with iconic photo done by @@Peter Connan : Ladies and Gentlemen, I present you   101. Black Heron      

And, although already presented in the Rietvlei section, I hope you do not mind me adding a couple more photos of Long-Tailed Widowbird.              

And on the riverbanks another cousin (??) is preying on its meal     133. Little Egret - Egretta Garzetta - Mala bela čaplja     ??/04/16 - Barje   16/04/16 - Barje   16/04/16 - Barje

II. Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa / 01.Feb - 12.Feb 2016

 

We have returned to KTP to see more of the big cats, yet birds of prey were in good numbers also this year, plus quite many smaller ones!
