As another happy customer of @Peter Connan, going out with him on several occasions, I am assured that he must have been the "raw model" upon whom @Game Warden has developed the SafariPal idea!

 

Nice start, and I am curious to see what South Africa has offered to you this time around.

I am glad you got some reasonable shots of the Blackie @Tdgraves!

 

Now how about the Bumblebeebird (Yellow-crowned Bishop)?

Much less success with that (in flight at least) @Peter Connan, despite better light and longer time to try....

They are very tricky because they keep changing direction...
