This is exciting. A great idea. I am just an ameteur birder but I will give it a try. I think it is a Wood Sandpiper.

I’m terrible about bird identification, so I won’t even hazard a guess. But I want to echo your remarks about the importance of birding in the wilderness experience. When I was at Londolozi, I think the comment I wrote as I was leaving was “Came for the leopards. Stayed for the birds.” And I LOVE the leopards!

Ruff (Philomachus pugnax)

Could it be a Pectoral Sandpiper, maybe?

This should be the “Long-toed Stint” but I confess that I find it difficult to distinguish between this and the “Little Stint”. Very interesting post and we look forward to the next few weeks. Thanks also for all the wonderful stories and photos. We have just returned from Botswana and is now planning our Londolozi visit.

Hi James!
So fun with a Bird Challenge! I think the Mystery Bird #1 is Wood Sandpiper (Bosruiter). Thank you and your colleagues for a very interesting blog! September last year me and my husband visit Londolozi it was such a fantastic experience!
