These two Urolestes melanoleucus are also called African long-tailed shrike. I saw them in Kruger National Park, and the tails still amaze me.
Bostrychia hagedash is sometimes also called Hadada Ibis. It has a very distinct haaa-call – hence the name. This one was strolling on a lawn in the Helderberg Reserve near Cape Town.

The legs of the chair and the stem of the cactus give you are very good idea how small this Cossypha caffra actually is. I met it in the Helderberg reserve near Capetown a few years ago.
Fun fact: these birds like to take a bath, every day.
