Tawny eagle I believe. Dipping back into the Africa image files.

And though warm blooded, not a bird, and though aquatic, not a fish.

You guys are confusing me
The diminutive but sweet sounding Cape White Eye, a bird that you will usually hear first before seeing it.

a barbet, I think a yellow & red barbet, but it doesn't quite fit the description nor images of any species of barbet in my books or on line.

That is known around here as a Crested Barbet.

I thought crested barbet at first but: notice the red rump (in another image it shows prominently); also the crested has a wide B&W speckled collar, the pictured bird does not; the crested has B&W speckled on the belly, the pictured bird does not.

Haven't posted an image of this free-loading genet for some time. It was scrounging dropped food from a restaurant deck.

Could be an immature CB. Some parts, though not all of it, fits with what I read in my book on them e.g, the yellowish beak.

Pigmy falcon. I'll PP some other views of that barbet, but I doubt it's a crested. It would have to do quite a bit of color & pattern change.
