Oh. You wanted the species of bird?:lol:

Well OK then. It's a king Hornbill.  Namely a Crowned Hornbill Tockus alboterminatus. A mainly East/Central African species but it also occurs in Angola.

We have established that you saw it in Ruaha.

 

Sorry about the excursion off topic but this is in the off topic section anyway..B)

I've always viewed the thread "Where was the picture taken" as an extension of this thread "Name the bird", except that the former had to have a picture of wildlife, not necessary a bird. I think both

Woo Hoo! You got it. @mvecht It is a female Jungle Bush Quail. Shot (with a camera ) in Ranthambhore n November 2019     and here is the male

Use of four letter words like 'work' loses points. Welcome back.

Sadly it is not a Yellow crowned Bishop.

Sorry, whilst it 'could be' a Zitting Cisticola it is not.

Well it seems to fall to me to keep this moving whilst logic dictates the topic should be put to bed as past its 'play by date'.

OK. @BRACQUENE's bird is either a Black Kite (migrans) or Yellow-billed Kite ( parasitus). One can usually only spilt them from the bill and head markings with is the missing link here.

As migrans is migratory the odds are obviously stacked in favour of YB but only G and @BRACQUENEreally knows and the latter is better placed to ask even if not as all seeing!:o.

So my answer is YB Kite (for now unless anyone knows better.)

I think you have your answer with a clear view of the bill :D ; it is convenient that you came in because I will have to leave the game for a while as I will be leaving for the coast on Boxing Day and I hope you will find a response when posting a new one !

If I am correct it is your turn since you guessed the last one more than two weeks ago before we both went on holiday but we might have the same problem as in the other game : lack of players for the moment ?

This is why I waited. I don't mind playing any game but Ping Pong which this seems to have become. :o
