Kruger National Park - The other side - Part 2

These are definitely NOT my best pictures as I do not have a very good lens for birds but it will give you an idea of some of the species we have here.

Brownheaded Parrot - they are fruit eaters and can be found in flocks up 50 in number.
Juvenile Fish Eagle - they take over 5 years to attain their adult plumage, moulting 7 times in the process.
White-faced Whistling Duck - food includes molluscs, insect larvae and seeds
Egyptian Goose - extremely noisy birds mainly found in breeding pairs
Common Sandpiper - when feeding, it constantly bobs its body up and down.
