Hi,

Again driving along the N4 about 50kms from Nelspruit in PTA direction, with no spot to pull over and a fair amount of traffic, i spotted a bird which had just landed on a pylon. Looked like it had a black cap white breast and black wings and tail. The tail was quite pointed and looked like a longish beak. Almost thought it was a tern due to similar size. But it wagged its tail in exactly the same rhythm and fashion as a Wagtail?
Very vague I know.... at 120kmh birds tend to be...


Is there any hope?

Difficult to say of course without seeing photos but how about a Whiskered Tern or if larger something like a Pied Crow?

I am assuming is was something with a large body like a crow and not small with a long tail?
