Hi everyone. We have decided to compile a list of the top 10 bird specials for each province. We are kicking off with Mpumalanga, home to the Southern Kruger Park, and the birding mecca that is Wakkerstroom. Please note that whilst compiling my provincial lists, I have made a rule that states that once a bird appears in 1 province, I cannot use it in another eg. I have Cape Parrot in my Eastern Cape List, so it can't go in my KZN list. Also, how do we interpret a top 10 list, 10 rarest, 10 most endemic, 10 most sought after, or a mix of all, you decide.
Anyway this is what I have come up with for Mpumalanga. Let me know what you think, and send us your list. 1.) White-winged Flufftail 2.) Taita Falcon 3.) Rudd's Lark 4.) Botha's Lark 5.) Lappet-faced Vulture 6.) Southern Ground Hornbill 7.) Bateleur 8.) Blue Korhaan 9.) Wattled Crane 10.) White-backed Night Heron
