Some lovely additions here. 400 is not far off.

In my book if it is a Kite with a Yellow bill then it is a Yellow-billed Kite. Simples!

155 / Nam 137. Pel's Fishing Owl. Feb. Drotsky's Cabins, Botswana. If I had to name one highlight of our trip (there were many..) it would be finding the Pel's Fishing Owl. It took some effort, severa

108 / Nam 90. Gabar Goshawk. Feb. Etosha  

This one was already in the count, but I came across this beautiful juvenile Pale Chanting Goshawk, which was so cooperative.

389 (G64) White-faced Scops Owl. Brufut, Gambia, November. Again with the local guide. Although we eventually managed to see it, the owl ,well a little part of the owl anyway, there was no way to take a decent shot, so this will have to do. A lifer, all the same.

Wonderful to see a Scops. They are so well camouflaged one almost never sees them!

I sense 400 very soon.

The Northern WF Scops shows how far you have come along the road to EBC quality.:huh:

 Can't agree with you @Galana that's amateur quality as far as EBC's go.

391 (G66) Violet Turaco. Brufut, Gambia, November. A bird we very much wanted to see. We'd seen a flash before, but only on the last day did we get a proper look at one.
