Thank you Johan. This looks very difficult again.
Time to get going with it, because it might take a loooooong time to figure out the answers... :lol:

Thanks for posting the answers to #19, and also thank you for being "gentle" with us. I now see where we went wrong, :redface: :redface:

Will get going on the next one now. We are also interested in your answers to Dabchicks questions. :lol:

Am sending our answers in tonight as we are away for a few days now........... found it difficult this time, maybe because we were in a rush to finish, but whatever, it was fun, and I am sure we are going to learn a lot again.

I must admit, I found some of these quite tough to ID as well, and am expecting quite a few wrong... unless I am lucky ofcourse :mrgreen: I also now know which birds I don't want to have poop on my car after I have washed it :twisted:

Need some clarification here..

Q#1: Can I assume you're talking about South/Southern African raptor?
Q#3: Longest distance in total or longest non-stop migration? Also, does this bird occur in / visit South/Southern Africa?

I assume these questions are not necessarily about the birds that needs to be ID'ed?


Yes
Total
Yes
Not necessarily

That's not bad at all for such a tricky challenge, Hilda. I changed my mind about two of the birds at the end, otherwise I probably would have had 7. Who knows with these things?

Common, MMouse! There is plenty of time for your PM... I normally send the answers out late on Wednesdays, sometimes even a day or so later if a 'mite requests more time...

I'd love to have you join the fun! :thumbs_up:
