A strange looking bird

Permalink 06:40:39, Categories: Waterfowl  

This bird was recently photographed at some distance by Adrian Drummond-Hill in Dahrain SA on the 16-11-06 - we have had to enlarge it somewhat, hence the reduction in quality however it has not helped us identify the species -From a variety of respondants it has now been positively identified as a Great Crested Grebe Podiceps cristatus

have no idea

mail to:



Bishop - Weaver or what

Photographed by Adrian Drummond-Hill at Badaan Farm on the 9th November
He has been told its a Yellow Crowned Bishop - I just don't know myself would love some comments from anybody familiar with African species
