@theplainswanderer Not sure, did you attach images from your HD or link to some in an online gallery?

They are all great @Tdgraves ! I would say it's between 1 and 3, but probably 3. Also, I would get rid of the white object (another bird?).

thanks @Peter Connan there are another 3 which I didn't post! I assumed that the white object was a feather, as I cannot see any flowers on the tree. But as you say, it'd be easy to crop it out, of 1 at least

They're all beautiful beyond expectation.

 

That final bee-eater is a stunner — terrific focus!

Many thanks for posting such a fine assortment of birds.

 

Truly lovely, making me wish that I was back in Africa on a game drive.

 

I'm unfamiliar with the fifth bird, between a roller and an owl, but must say that it's a lovely species.

 

Thank you!

 

Tom K.

@ Tom Kellie

 

Thank you Tom

 

The fifth bird is a Yellow-bellied Eremomela (Eremomela icteropygialis). They are usually not seen in the open like in the photo.

 

All birds where photographed in the Kruger National Park.
