Saw this beautiful stranger on our bird table - any ideas on what species? Would it have blown off course from usual migration routes or more likely to be an escapee? Any ideas welcome!
No interactions present.
A tropical African bird, most likely an escapee (but who knows with this recent strange weather!) Great to see!
It is certainly an escapee as this species has a fairly limited range in Zimbabwe and Mozambique as is not migratory
Agree on almost certainly an escapee but it is locally common in Tanzania and Kenya too.
Right you are - I've seen them displaying in Tsavo
