A pair of Crowned Eagles entertained us yesterday on a birding day-trip to Magoebaskloof. The female, which is much larger than the male, gave us a stern stare before continueing preening.


Long-crested Eagle 

Posted on Updated on

I took two birders out on a day trip last week. We visited Mariepskop. Long-crested Eagle, Gorgeous Bushshrike, Barrats Warbler, Orange Ground Thrush, Yellow-throated Woodland Warbler, Yellow-throated Longclaw, Dusky Indigobird, Yellow-streaked Greenbul  and Dusky Flycatcher was just some of the birds we got. The beautiful forests and incredible view over the Blyde River Canyon make this a popular birders’ and photographers’ destination.

A real skulker, but once he decides to show himself he is a beauty to look at. This Gorgeous Bushshrike or Four-coloured Bushshrike was seen in Northern Kwazulu Natal. http://www.birdingandwildlifesafaris.com
