Not the greatest of pictures, but given that this species is not lergely represented in the gallery, I decided to upload it.. here a male of this small shrike species that is becoming uncommon, mostly because of the intensification of agriculture and use of pesticides.

Fish eagles patrol the humid zones of Africa and are very common. There must still be enough fish in those waters!

Not a great picture but this is an iconic sandgrouse, mostly sought after in the Kalahari. We saw many of them there, but some at the Okavango delta, too!
