Apologies for not participating, Waterbuck, but I was away. Well, that's my excuse any way.

I fear I would've scored dismally anyway.

On board for the next challenge though. :D

Lizet and Waterbuck....come baaaack...all is forgiven! :redface: :redface: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks Johan for the rude awakening. I am sure that you go trekking to all the way off places just to find impossible birds for us to ID. Will be back to 50% again, just to keep your averages good! :tongue:

When I saw Johan's new challenge, I said a word that is not repeatable on the forum :| :redface: :slap: .... who said something about a rude awakening? :hmz:

Okay, I know one. So I can bargain on 1/6 at least... :| :wall: :wall: :wall:

:lol:



PS. that eyeless bird is just plain spooky... :shock:

Welcome back JvR!

Thanks again Lizet and Waterbuck for the challenges you have put together and kept things going while JvR was away.

Don't know where to start looking for a bird with a white eye! :doh:

Sent my answers in to Johan - thinking I had got some right. Well I only scored 2/6, sob, sob! Looking forward to the answers so I can see where I went wrong. What looked fairly easy obviously had some major catches.

1/6 :cry: :wall: :wall:

Johan suggested I should spent more time trying to ID the birds.... but I've already spent more time on this challenge than any of the previous ones! :roll:

It'll be interesting to see what the "real" ID's are.... :popcorn:

Hippotragus and Dabchick, you already have your results!?! I am still struggling! If you two, who knows much more about the birds than I can ever hope to know, get 1 and 2, I wonder if I should send mine in? :tongue:
