I keep checking my past trips pictures and allways find a few birds to add to my list, but the conclusion is allways that I have to go back to those places because I only find a few, some that are caught in the picture of another subject.

 

The trip was to Hluhluwe-iMfolozi ans St.Lucia/iSimangaliso:

And I ask for confirmation that this one (terrible picture) is a Goliath heron:

I think it is a Purple, but I am only about 51.5% sure of that.

It will be tough to be sure, I thought about the goliath because checking pictures online it seems that the bill is darker in the upper part, it was mainly because of that.

My reason is the grey patch on the crown.

Any other opinions?

 

I can use either the Goliath or the Purple heron.

After Corona (and once the summer has returned), you can come back here, so that I can take you to Marievale to get decent shots of both...

I’ll drink to that (but not before friday ;)).

 

Btw, we have purple here, I think they are starting to arrive.

I'd say it's Goliath, that was my immediate reaction when I saw the picture. Extremely long neck, and sharp contrast on the breast.
