Thank you for the ID @SarahWhitt
Thanks SukanyaDatta :)
Thanks Malcolm, I agree. Didn't have a chance to see the front, which would have made ID a lot easier. Thanks for the identification :)
It looks like it could be a tailorbird, but aren't they Asian? They don't seem to be common in South Africa.I can't find a matching one with the grey head and red eye..
Thanks Malcolm. We've seen lots of yellow-billed kites here but none have had that grey colouration on their back. Is this a different variant?Our guide books say they are typically brown on the back. This one is starkly grey. Looks different.
Quite possibly a "Cottonwood dagger moth caterpillar"
@EmilieChich Thanks ever so much! That looks like just the one. I've updated the spotting to match.
Thanks for the ID Malcolm. Looks like a male to me, recent fledgling?
Flower looks a lot like a Barringtonia. Though it grows from the plant differently.
AshleyT, I posted the suggestion because I wasn't yet sure it was correct.
