The pictures show 2 birds – an Egret and a Cuckoo. Which ones are they?

The Egret was seen at Muzi Pan among a number of other Cattle Egrets.

The Cuckoo was seen last weekend at Tembe.

    Juvenile female Emerald Cuckoo that lacks the whilte smudge above the ear coverts and the ventral bars are close and dark bronze/brown.

  2. Roy & Steve says:

    Cattle Egret having a short neck, rather robust and shortish bill which is bright orange. The JIZZ is short and squat to that of an Intermediate (Yellow-billed) Egret. I have recently seen an Intermediate Egret with black legs up to the thigh, presuming that this bird was not in breeding plumage.

    I agree with Desire Pelser: Female Emerald Cuckoo and probably an Intermediate Egret

  4. Desire' Pelser says:

    Cuckoo … female African Emerald; Egret … Intermediate?
