Red-billed Oxpecker

Buphagus erythrorhynchus

The red-billed oxpecker is a passerine bird in the myna and starling family and is a fairly common sighting in southern Africa, where it spends much of its time feeding on the backs of wild and domesticated mammals.

We first recorded this species in April 2010 while at Mkhuze Private Game Reserve in northern KZN.
