Nice stuff @Peter Connan.     A bird in one's yard is worth ten in the bush!

Thanks Nate @offshorebirder.

 

Although, I would prefer to be chasing the ten in the bush. My Big Year really needs it!

This juvenile Southern Pale Chanting Goshawk wasn't sure what to do about this snake. I think it's a mole snake but it was rather too far to get a clear ID. In Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

Fairy Martin. A very difficult little subject.

There are so many good BIF's available - it's hard to find anything different (for me anyway)
I have never seen a cattle egret with another bird in the mouth. Rather a huge crop.

@Geoff, you nailed it!

 

@Elsa Hoffmann, that is indeed uncommon and very well photographed to boot!
