Kyalami Estates - June Round-up

30 June 2023 - Kyalami Estates

It had been a busy month, so I didnt have too much time for birding or photography in the Estate but there were still a few highlights in the form of Black-headed Oriole, Green Pigeons and Little Sparrowhawk.

From my balcony, a Hadeda Ibis fly by

And I had the resident exotics visit my feeders. Not sure how I feel about these species, but they have become established. The Rose-ringed Parakeets visit occasionally

But the Rosy-faced Lovebirds are relatively new in the Estate and are really fast flying and very skittish, so perhaps not comfortable with people yet?

I had a female White-bellied Sunbird at the St Ledger Dam on one of my walks
