Thank you Barryels for the challenge and to JvR for his great pictures. :clap: :clap:

Thanks Gatita for the next challenge. Don't know why you think it might be easy :wall: :wall:

Not very long umtali1! I promised this book on 13 October 2014 .... just over 3 months ago, and one can't really count December - there were no challenges, which makes it just over 2 months! :dance:

6/10 plus BB for me for Challenge #2/2015! :dance:

I think we have made it difficult for ourselves because we were thinking about which birds you get in Germany as well as in South Africa?

A very nice challenge, thank you Gatita! :clap: :clap:

Some are tougher than others TheRealShamwari! That's what makes it so interesting! The only way to learn is to try ID-ing them! I don't think 6/10 is bad anyway! :thumbs_up:
