Madikwe bird life.

Some of the bird life that we spotted on our recent Madikwe safari. 

I found these Lesser Striped Swallows at Tau
 (Thanks to Clive and Robert for the correction)

Can anyone help me identify it?
Yes they could...Clive was right, Garth was not.
This is,in fact, a White-Throated Robin Chat

Marabou Storks... probably one of the ugliest birds. 

I wonder what a group is called? 

A Cape Turtle Dove 

A Lesser Masked weaver 

A juvenile Pale Chanting Goshawk 

It was being harassed by a Black-shouldered Kite and it left 

I have been lied to all these years...This White Stork did not have a baby with it!
(thanks once again to Clive for the correction) 

A European Bee-eater 

The previously mentioned Black-shouldered Kite

We were spotted by a... 

Spotted Eagle Owl 

These are White-faced Whistling Ducks. 

Black-winged Stilt 

This is a Common Moorhen.Why call it "common"? 

A pair of African Hawk Eagles 

Vultures near an elephant carcass. 

A Swallow-tailed Bee-eater
