The road to Etosha

Many Bradfield’s, Little and African Palm Swifts over Windhoek first thing. Quite a lot seen on the drive to Etosha with several Yellow-billed Hornbills, a Red-billed Francolin, Black-chested Prinia, White-browed Sparrow-weaver and a Yellow Canary near Okahandja.

Further north, a few Monteiro’s Hornbills seen along with an incredibly confiding Marsh Owl, presumably a near road casualty and also Kalahari Scrub-Robin, Northern Black Koorhan, Purple Roller, Chestnut-vented Tit-Babbler and a stunning male Crimson-breasted Shrike seen by the rest stops.
