Maybe I'll just gooi in a quick tip. With some views of some birds in some challenges (and in real life settings) it behoves one not to be too fixated on plumage features but rather try to appreciate the general proportions and shapes of heads, wings and tails :whistle:

Managed 6/10. Quite pleased, as some were real guesses and one I couldn't even begin to ID! Looking forward to the answers on Friday.

I told a lie :redface: I gave a "Shot in the dark" answer because of one of the features that Deefstes just mentioned :wink:

Great score Micetta! :clap: :clap:

Gryskopvisvanger, I am going to submit my answers now! Don't feel bad! Wait for my score, then you will pat yourself on the back, because I don't expect more than 1! :doh:

I hope not too many 'mites noticed my Oopsie...

I somehow posted my answers here instead of in a PM to Deefstes... not once, but twice!! :redface:

If anyone saw it, don't give it much heed as I was shooting without bullits! All my references are in boxes!
