Welcome to the Bird Challenge 08/2015

Let's call it the black and white one with a bit of red - Maybe not that difficult at least in identifying the birds but this time I want to know a bit more about the birds. Therefore only 5 birds to deal with - Have fun and good luck!

Bird No. 4

For challenge 7, I expected 2 of the 3 that I had incorrect to be wrong. The 3rd one surprised me a little, so I will have to look at this one.

Also lookng forward to the next challenge - certainly requires a bit more investigation, and will be an awesome learning opportunity!
