    Hi

    We filmed a flock of Lark’s feeding on flying termites in Dullstroom last year. It’s quite fascinating watching them feed up close.

    We’re struggling to tell the difference between the Pink-billded Lark (Spizocorys Conirostris) and the Botha’s Larks (Spizocorys Fringillarus) and was hoping that someone with more experience could help us out.

    You can find the video here: http://www.sofar.co.za/blog/feeding-frenzy

    Thanks 🙂

      Hi there,

      What you have there are juvenile, female and males in non-breeding plumage of Pin-tailed Whydah, Long-tailed Widow and Masked Weavers.

      Wonderful video clip!

      Thanks
      Casper

    Thanks, Casper. Looks like we were quite far off. Will have a look in the book tonight.
