I hope Ferdelance remembers to post Challenge #44! Maybe I should quickly drop him a PM just to remind him! :wink:

I think Lizet is currently very busy, she will surely post the results as soon as she finds time. :D

Thank you Ferdelance! I agree with Micetta (who is waiting to laugh at me!), there is more than one tricky one! :lol:

Hilda, I am afraid that it is your turn to laugh this time. I just sent them in, but I am not 100% sure of even one :slap:

You are excused, Lizet :wink: It is already a great thing that you've put of the challenges and waiting for the answers is really not very serious, you already gave us the results by PM :gflower:

No problem Lizet! As Micetta said, we already have our personal results, we can wait for the results until you are able to post them. Thanks for all your hard work, especially with internet problems in between! :thumbs_up:

Sorry for the delay guys! Had connection problems and then a Madagascar Cuckoo appeared out of thin air... :twisted:

Challenge #43 Answers

#1-Red-winged Francolin
The black neckline that is bordered with rufous on both sides was the best clue here.

#2-Brown firefinch
The brown crown and grey rump was the clues here.

#3-Carmine Bee-eater
This one is very straight forward

#4-Western-Banded Snake-eagle
Again almost everybody got this one right. The combination of the barred lower belly, bare legs, yellow eye and the dark band on the lower part of tail gave this one away.

#5-Olive Thrush
This one turned out to be more difficult. The features to look for is a white vent, brown eye ring and mottled throat.

#6-Copper Sunbird
Also a difficult one..
The feature to go for is the fact that this bird almost resembles a Bronze Sunbird but lacks the elongated tail feathers. The black/dark underpart combined with the shining bronze/green plumage is typical for Copper Sunbird. Remember that a Bronze sunbird doesn’t have an eclipse plumage which means that you won’t see one without the long tail feather..

#7-Black-crowned Night-heron Juv.
Another blocker…
The best feature here is the very white spots on the upper wing coverts and back which is not as distinct in Grean-backed heron.

#8-Martial Eagle Juv.
Again very easy bird. The fact that this bird has a brown hind neck separates it from Crown Eagle Juv.
