Thank you for the challenge Lizet. I don't know how I figured Moimbo Blue eared starling... That sharp tailed starling threw me of the trail! :slap: I even figured the darker patch behind the ear is because of the light and I'm seeing things! :roll: :wall: So we learn. Thanks!

Received my score from Lizet this morning; 6/8. I should have looked at my Newman's 1991 for the sparrow and coucal. The new SASOL may be very good but several of the illustrations are not quite correct.
As for the latest ID challenge, there will be a lot of :think: and :wall: , and maybe :pray: .
Good luck to all. :thumbs_up:

Hey fellow twitchers - I know this is not the right topic to post this, but since nobody can seem to help me with this birding question, I am putting it in here.

I have been twitching for many years and although serious listing was initially not for me, 2012 certainly got me going and my targets for 2013 are already set........won't tell you at what level, but its gonna take another 3 or 4 years to get to the big numbers!!!!
This now is where I need some guidance. We all understand that listing is based on personal honesty, integrity and all those nice values that most bird watchers share. I know that feral birds like the Indian Peafowl (Peacock) should be ticked from a real feral population like that on Robben Island, but what are the accepted "rules" for indigenous birds in captivity? Is it taboo to tick local birds if they are found in a zoo, or in a rehabilitation center........or even worse......does anybody tick roadkill? I would value your guidance."

Waterbuck,
The main rule for counting a new bird to your list is that it should be a free living/roaming/flying/breeding bird. The moment it's taken to a facility like a rehab centre or zoo etc.. it can't be counted as free living anymore and therefore not be "ticked". The same then counts for "roadkill".... :twisted:

The above rule also applies to escaped birds like waterfowl. They are not counted for as free breeding birds.

Cheers
Lizet
