I visited Mtunzini for a few days last week, was involved in a lot of bundu-bashing, and only really had time for one morning walking with the camera. Did manage to get 3 new lifers.

Love the name "Geelkeelkalkoentjie".

That Mtunzini is quite a birding paradise. Haven't actually visited it since the early 80's.

Baie mooi, soos gewoonlik. Ons het die anderdag 'n paar ground hornbills (soos die kraai vlieg) so 25km Suid-Wes by 'n gronddam sien rondloop. Dit lyk tot die voëls wil nou al Weskaap toe trek.

Lots of Black shouldered Kites around. This pair raised 2 juveniles in our orchard.
Also lots of Pale Chanting goshawks around. Spotted this juvenile close to our placeIMG_7131.JPG IMG_7173.JPG

Sorry not on a bike, Kgalagadi NP, Botswana side. Rooibors Laksman, if not mistaken ?
Crimson breasted strike, also known as the Reichsvogel in Nam due to the colors of the German Reich
