  1. European Beeeater, Hungary May 2017
  2. Hi guys I am not quite happy with the wing shape for a Marsh Harrier. I would expect longer and narrower wings as well as some darker wing tips. However I am at a loss to suggest a different species.
  3. @@Hads Looks like a juvenile Martial Eagle to me.
  4. @madaoutcheetah Happy New Year Hari Fantastic Pictures. Any Pictures of Tigers at the Castle in Ranthambhore
  5. @@madaboutcheetah Hari I was very lucky to see a Florida Panther in Kissimmee Florida about 10 years ago. We were playing golf on a course that has huge areas of wetlands. It was relatively early in the morning and the Panther (sub species of the Cougar) was stalking a Heron but had a narrow miss. We watched the Panther for about a minute but unfortunately I did not bring a camera. Considering that there are less than 200 Florida Panthers in the wild it was an extremely Lucky sighting.
  6. Hari Great capture of the "river crossing". Babbons in Water are quite a sight.
  7. #46 Looks like Spurwinged Geese, Cattle Egret and Black-winged Stilt
  8. @@FlyTraveler Thank you for your kind Words. We missed the bulk of the migration by half a day! As we entered Ndutu they were entering the South western part of the Serengeti. We could see it in the distance but were not allowed to drive there.

  11. @@optig Great report sofar. What is your source for the statement that Cheetah do not eat organs? Please Refer to page 13 of http://www.cheetah.co.za/pdf/cheetahinformation.pdf that clearly states that Cheetah eat the Heart and Liver
  12. Israel and still thinking
  13. @@pomkiwi The lodge looks really interesting. How many people do they seat in each vehicle? How much did you have to pay for the private vehicle?
  14. @@pomkiwi Great report but is it not a Nyala rather than a Bushbuck in Pictures 6-7?
  15. This destination is not as new as the article indicates. There have been several lodges in this area for the last two decades.including Susuwe,Camp Kwando and Lianshulu. I went to Susuwe in 2003 and 2004. Gameviewing was good and may be even better today. Good Sable and excellent Elephant viewing as well as Leopard, Lions etc. However the gameviewing was not even close to what I have seen next door at Kwando. I can however recommend Susuwe due to the mix of activities and the location. I transferred from Susuwe to Kwando Lagoon by boat from Lianshulu which also seemed like a very nice lodge.
