I think I have 2 of them. The rest are definitely birds, :hmz: I'm sure of it! :lol: Thanks Micetta! 2 nights in a row working on this challenge and I've only got 2! Good challenge. Hope I'll finish in time!

Good luck everyone!

Definitely an Aussie bird, but I think I've got it - it's a yellow-bellied sapsucker (the aloe is a dead give-away)!

Because the species was right, but the adjective wrong :wink:

Pawps, as soon as your message has been read by the recipient, it will disappear from your outbox and will go to your sent items! If it is still in your outbox, it only means that Micetta hasn't read it yet. :thumbs_up:

Ooo - that's HARSH! :big_eyes: If I didn't put an adjective :slap: would I then get 7/10 instead of 6.5/10?

You can expect most of the answers on Friday Micetta! The 'mites are paging! You've done an excellent job with this challenge! :dance: :dance:

(I wonder if Johan van Rensburg is participating on this one?! :hmz:

6/10 and no BB for me for challenge #19/2013!

Why are you wondering, hilda? :lol:

I must say this challenge is a mission. Normally I would have posted by Monday at the latest, but this one still has me rattling some ideas around in my scull...

:hmz:

Well, there's only one way to go from zero -onward and upward! :thumbs_up: Learning and having fun sound like a good combination to me! :)

And there's another thing -it keeps my mind off the awful cold 'spring' we're having. Not much fun for the birds over here.
