More bird sounds identified at africam.com

Today I'm working in my office in South Africa, virtually of course, but with live video stream and sounds from my second computer. Cape Turtle Dove (Streptopelia capicola) was again singing this morning and right now the Woodland Kingfishers (Halcyon senegalensis) are calling close to the Elephant Plains camera. Many other sounds of course, and I'm trying to identify them all, slowly...

P.S. Crested Barbet (
Trachyphonus vaillantii) has been singing several times in Nkorho Pan webcam. Also the Woodland Kingfishers are calling every now and then.

Later in the afternoon I got an excellent hint - it was this website: Sounds of Nkorho Cam
After listening through all the bird sounds from that site, I was immediately able to identify three more birds:
Burchell's Coucal (Centropus burchellii), Crested Francolin (Francolinus sephaena) and Emerald-spotted Wood Dove (Turtur chalcospilo).
