Deefstes, in your answers to #14.....

"....... This bird is separated from the usual suspect, Southern Grey-headed Sparrow, by having a much heavier bill, a noticeable white wing bar, white throat"........
You do mean "No white wing bar", right? :wink:

Thanks Deefstes for the very clear explanations to #14. :thumbs_up:

You say that the new challenge is harder. Help! I found #14 hard enough as reflected in my answers.

Whoops, indeed :redface: Of course it's the Southern Grey-headed Sparrow that has the noticeable wing bar. I'll go fix it.

Thank you for the answers with the explanations Deefstes! :D

Thank you also for the new challenge! You do mean business, as if the previous one wasn't difficult enough! :shock:

Micetta, you are wide awake! It is clear that you just came back from a wonderful holiday, and don't miss anything! :clap: :clap:

Micetta, maybe you could page through all your bird pictures (you must have thousands of them) and sort out what you could use for Bird ID Challenges during the last four months of this year, because I am going to ask you again! :tongue:
