Hi Mites
Sorry this is a bit late. Overall the scores were high (must be the lack of larks, pipits and cisticola’s :D ). The raptor pictures were taken at a rehab center "Raptor Encounter's" along the garden Route. They are worth supporting as they do good work. The starling was a free bird! Thanks for entering and herewith the answers.

#1 Verreaux's Eagle.
Image
#2 Black-shouldered Kite.
Image
#3 Rock Kestrel
Image
#4 Barn Owl
Image
#5 Spotted Eagle Owl
Image
#6 Lanner Falcon.
Image
#7 Red-winged Starling Female
Image
#8 House Sparrow couple
Best caption was from Jan van Rensburg:

Other good ones were:
“Please keep your mouth shut woman, I can't even think!!!”
“One more chirp woman…”

That is why I couldn't find a "Jan van Rensburg" when I searched for that 'mite! :roll:

Congratulations Johan! I didn't know you also participate in these challenges! :clap: :clap:

Ladybirder, very well done on challenges #11 and #12!

7/10 for me for challenge #13/2013! :D

Please note:

Challenge #14/2013 will be posted by Deefstes on Friday, 12 April 2013! :dance:

Well done Micetta! :clap: :clap:

Shushin, you are doing very well! :dance: :dance:

Another announcement:

Dear 'mites, participating in these challenges, posting challenges, or just reading here, my apologies for this late announcement, but I first had to get the relevant mite's consent to inform you that Deefstes has become the proud Daddy of a little boy, named Ehren, who was born on 18 March 2013! He is Deefstes and his wife's first baby! :clap: :clap:

Congratulations to Deefstes and his beautiful wife from all of us here on the Bird ID Challenge thread! :dance: :dance:
