What was the bird ID? Is it a thrush?

Best,

Hi Wynn, Apologies, I completely forgot to enter it. It was a female Black Cuckooshrike…

Ah, is the young Saseka female child of the old Saseka? And she is no longer with us, is she?

James, What about the bird quiz? Or are you not sure, either.

Tom, my sincere apologies, I always forget! It was a female Black Cuckooshrike

I always look forward to TWIP; this is another winner. We were in Londolozi in September and it’s really nice to see how Londolozi greens up, although probably the game drives in September yielded better animal viewing.

So enjoyed this week’s photos. It certainly looks lush there and the various species of animals should be very content to take advantage of the bounty. Loved your panning photo!!

Hi James, the young male and female lion you believe were Styx members and I believe featured in your Instagram story were actually two three and half year olds from the Nkuhuma Pride. They have been together it seems for the last few months (the female had been thought dead as she had last been sighting in the north in late October). The young male was seen on Londolozi in September with the last young Mhangeni Male, who sadly died of an infection (natural causes) in late November. Both of them presumably were with the rest of the Nkuhumas (the young male was definitely seen nearby one of the three Northern Avoca Males). Not sure why the young lioness joined him. The young male has seemingly lost what growing mane he had and my theory is it’s because of suppressed testosterone due to not being territorial, pressure from the Avocas,, and the strain of being nomadic, but that’s just a theory.

Great thanks Michael.
Yes we weren’t too sure of that. Thanks for clearing it up!
Best regards.

Well, I was way off on identifying your bird. But what I can identify is all these wonderful images from this week! Thanks!

Nice pictures. It’s interesting what will happen to the lions prides and the leopards in the future.
