11 posts in this topic

Took a trip to Tanzania in late October, 2010. Took a lot of bird pictures, but my "Birds of East Africa" guidebook fell short in definitive identifications.

11 looks like an Augur Buzzard (but I have zero experience with african birds...)

#9 looks like a Yellow Wagtail, or at least something in that family.

Agree that #11 looks good for Augur Buzzard.

For what it's worth, this site has a list of bird of the area, with the percentages of lists that have recorded each species, it might be helpful if you are trying to decide between a few species and want to know which is more likely:
