Greetings folks. First of all, thanks for all the well wishes with the new addition to the family. He's a real bundle of joy and we are loving every moment of it - even the sleepless moments. :D Just a tiny correction, the date of birth was the 16th of March, not the 18th. I know, minor detail, I just want to make sure that you don't accidentally send him his pair of binoculars as first birthday present next year two days late :wink:

At any rate, it's time for Challenge 14 so, without further ado:

Challenge 14

Bird 1
Image

Bird 2
Image

Bird 3
Image

Bird 4
Image

Bird 5
Image

Bird 6
Image

Bird 7
Image

Bird 8
Image

PM me your answers. Results will be posted on Friday, 19 Apr. Have fun!
