Ladybirder: Johan brought all of us down to earth .... with the speed of light! :whistle:

Don't worry, 1/8 for me too.
I suppose a 20 year hiatus doesn't help neither..

But we will try again :thumbs_up:

Hi all.

I am also new to the challenges. Really a great way to keep the ID skills up while stuck in an office.

Slightly earlier, due to work interfering with getting it posted tomorrow.

The last time I put together a challenge was on the 5th of March 2010. Let’s see if I still have the ability to photograph bums, odd angles, headless birds etc, or if I have improved since then.




There is a common theme in this challenge, and once worked out will make it much easier, apart from one bird that I found there out of range (bonus point for naming the theme)
11 birds to ID and the extra ID is not a Cape Turtle Dove
