I was looking for a partridge-type bird, perhaps Stone Partridge, that Laura had seen recently on the Jebel, as well as Cinnamon-breasted Rock Bunting, which Bram Piot (a birder who visits Juba from time to time) had seen. A few minutes after starting our climb, Andrew pointed out a small bird a few metres away, and sure enough this was the bunting, the only one of the day. The partridge eluded us, but at the summit we saw eight or so Red-winged Starlings, a classic bird of rocky hills in East Africa and yet another new Juba species for me. Down below there were plenty of Hooded Vultures, Pied Crows, Northern Red Bishops and some Bronze Mannekins but there were not many birds higher up. We did see a Common Kestrel and a Wahlberg's Eagle, possibly a juvenile, near a large nest in a big tree near the summit. As noted in the post below, Wahlberg's Eagle was not considered by Nikolaus to breed around Juba.
We saw a dozen or so Vervet Monkeys and a Rock Hyrax. Andrew identified and photographed the butterflies, including Orange Tip Butterfly Colotis antevippe and the delighfully named Striped Policeman Coliades forestan.
Andrew also photographed this puffball fungus.
