Southern Fiscal subspecies subcoronatus along the Swartrivier road
Posted on the 1st March 2017
Lize van Dyk, who attended the Flight for Birders course at Somerset West last Thursday and Friday took these very interesting images along the Swartrivier road on Saturday. This Southern Fiscal subspecies subcoronatus is normally associated with the dryer north-west of the country and those of you visiting the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park would have seen it there. Note the conspicuous white eye-brow. Also interesting that the one image shows a young bird, so they must be breeding here. Be on the lookout for this “out of range bird” when next you travel along the Swartrivier road.
