Sure it is your shrike and it is a male. Hopefully there is also a female so you can get red-backed shrike chicks in a short while. That would be nice O\/ O\/

Thanks, nan! Now it doesn't surprise me at all anymore that you were knackered after your last outing! :shock:

Bee-eaters! That's just awesome. O/\

:ty:
yes there is the same "Common (European) Cuckoo" (migrant), but you have them only in the North East of South Africa and further North
arrived 3 weeks ago at my little pond...
today only heard, I think 2 of them... well hidden 0*\

and very similar to the African Cuckoo (but no-migrant :-? as per the Sasol)
