South African "Other" Birds!
So these guys didn't fit in any other category...
Helmeted Guinea Fowl
Red-billed Oxpecker (on a rhinoceros)
Striped Kingfisher - singing with open beak - he sang a good long time while we sat nearby.
Pied Kingfishers (on a bush near a river)
Magpie Shrike (now there's a tail for you! That whole long black thing is his tail; it just goes on and on)
Fork-tailed Drongo (these like to follow animals like rhinos to eat the bugs disturbed from the grasses as they graze)
African Green Pigeon (or it would be green, if it had been sunny and we'd had more light...)
