For the first time we got Cape Glossy Starlings and they had a peep in the nesting log and a warning from Chris :X: :X: :X:

Chris got his work cut out now as the starlings are not giving up as easily as the black collared barbet, but Chris is winning so far

Lovely pics and captions! =O:

I've seen White-eyes in the trees next door to us but for some reason they are avoiding our feeders! -O-

This morning I got very excited when I heard a Piet-my-vrou calling. I rushed outside and found a Black-capped Bulbul calling away madly as if he was a cuckoo!! O/ 0- =O:
