I have to admit, this one had me stumped. Kurt and I were going through photos of our first trips to Kruger, in late winter/early Spring of 2013, and came across this photo I took of a pretty yellow-and-white bird in a bush.
Having spent the last two years cramming birds of Southern Africa into my brain from a few identification books, I was sad to realize how little I still knew of the variety of birds here.
In the end, I had to send the photo to a bird guy (not to be confused with my snake guy, or my chicken guy) because I just wasn’t sure.
Before I give the answer, who wants to guess? Your clues are (other than the colors and that beak): Kruger Park, woodland setting, early springtime.
And “little yellow job” doesn’t count. 😉
