No problem Hilda :)
Yes your IDing skills are definitely better than your last score reflects.

Hi Shushin. Yes you pm the answers to whoever has posted the challenge, in the latest case Adrianp. Welcome to the challenge, it's good fun and you learn a lot. And keeps you busy in this horrible British weather! Also try the other easier bird challenge.

A warm welcome to the Bird ID Challenges Sushin! I can assure you that you will enjoy it and learn a lot! :clap: :clap:

Challenges are normally posted on a Friday by different challengers, the names of whom I normally announce more or less a week ahead. You PM the challenger with your answers, as Umtali1 already told you, and he/she will PM your results back to you. The next Friday, the challenger will post the answers to the challenge, so that you can see where you went wrong, if applicable.

Also try the Birding School for Ducklings! I'm not sure that these challenges are always easier than the Bird ID Challenges, but it is great fun and you can only learn by participating. See Here.

Announcement:

Please take note that Challenge #13/2013 will be posted by Pumbaa on 5 April 2013! :dance: :dance:
