I am not too keen on the extra questions. Mostly because to some of them you can only find the answers living in South Africa or having lots of field guides.....I only have one :( :wink:

I suggest you ask the presenter to mark yours just according to the bird IDs Micetta. I am sure they will understand. However, this week you will not have a problem, since MattAxel didn't ask bonus questions. :thumbs_up:

How do the other 'mites feel about the bonus questions? Is the result of this poll still valid?

On the other hand I do not participate the challenge in order to win, but in order to learn.

Methinks I have changed my mind :wink: Angels have the right to do just that; one of the advantages being an angel :whistle: :lol: :lol:

I think I'm in agreement with Micetta here. It is a bird ID challenge, so should probably just stick to bird IDs. Although I must admit that a lot of the bonus questions are fun, and I have learned quite a bit from them, so I'm actually indifferent on whether they are included or not. Maybe a new thread should be started called 'Bird Trivia Challenge"? Then everyone would be happy.

I have yet to partake, but any chance to learn more about my passion is one I'll take, and happily!
