My lifers include...
Karoo Long-billed Lark
Sclater's Lark
Karoo Korhaan
Black-headed Canary
Black-eared Finchlark
Tractrac Chat
Cinnamon-breasted Warbler
Victorin's Warbler
Booted Eagle
Yellow-bellied Eremomela
Namaqua Warbler
Chat Flycatcher
Dusky Sunbird
Damara Tern

That is what I can remember for now <!-- s:bouncy: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bouncy.gif" alt=":bouncy:" title="Enthusiastic" /><!-- s:bouncy: -->

for the rest of our trip there is still a possibility of Karoo Lark, Red Lark, Barlow's Lark, Stark's Lark, Pygmy Falcon, Red-necked falcon, Red-billed Spurfowl off the top of my head right now.... And I am sure we will see others we were not specifically chasing.

If we get our last few target birds there will not be a single western/northern cape special either of us will need.

Here is hoping....

Cheers,
Doug
