They must be the same make as the all have two legs, two eyes and a beak of some sort, but i think they are different models and have different spray-jobs, the fourth one looks like it can be very old, because my granny had a coat like that. What kind of noise do they make, 4, 6 or 8 cyl?

Ek gaan in Afrikaans antwoord, ken nie die engelse naam nie.
Ek dink die eerste een is n Byvanger, die 2de een is n Glans spreeu, die 3 de een is ook n Glans spreeu, die 4de een dink ek is n Kuifkop houdkapper, en die 5de een lyk soos n Kwe voel.
Die slim manne sal seker my kan reg help waar ek verkeerd is.

Hier is my guesstimates...:-)
1. Rooikeel byvanger / White fronted bee-eater
2. Ek kan nie sy oog sien nie so dit is een of ander glans spreeu / Starling.
3. Witpens suikerbekkie / White-bellied Sunbird agv die krom bekkie en die wit pens
4. Bennett's speg / Bennett's Woodpecker
5. Grysbors Tchagra / Southern Tchagra.

Kom ons kyk hoeveel uit 5 kry ek....;-)
