Hi guys

Please assist me in an audit of my life list. Since I hopelessly failed the lark challenge on the ID quiz, let me start there:

Thanks for the help

Thanks for the help so far.

Are we then happy with the ID on red-capped lark?

Me thinks I will rather look for simpler birds, larks are not my thing...

HiGilbertr14

4 - yes, red-capped lark

Sure the big guns will be able to help more.
