The answer is no, we don't all have the same ones wrong as I only got 1 correct in #46 :redface:
That's brought the average down -oops!

Wooden spoon for me :(

Thank you for the answers Wildtuinman! I was so sure my Drakensberg Prinia was correct, as well as the African Goshawk Juvenile! :lol:

Umtali1, don't feel bad! One is better than 0!! :thumbs_up:

Strangely enough I had the forrest buzzard right, but like hilda thought that the prinia was a Drakensberg and like Maretam that the fiscal flycatcher was a shrike :slap: :wink:
