Well done with your great scores for challenge #39/2013 everybody! :clap: :clap:

Thank you for the answers of challenge #39/2013 Deefstes! :gflower:

AdrianP, thank you for challenge #40/2013! I think it is going to be my worst nightmare! :lol:

NOTE TO ALL THE PARTICIPANTS:

Unfortunately I forgot to check who will be responsible for challenge #41/2013 next Friday, 18 October 2013. I can only hope that person noted it in his diary, because I cannot remind him, and we will only be back home on 19 October. Chances are there may or may not be a challenge next week! Please hold thumbs that the right person either reads this note, or has the date in his diary anyway! :pray:

3/9, seriously, almost pleased :redface: NOT my strongest area, so here is to knowing I really need to audit my list as there are some lbjs on it, and now I cannot trust my IDs. Oh well, me thinks me be here to learn...

Bird 7: Northern Black Korhaan (9/16)
Surprisingly, this was the worst performer of the batch. I would have understood if everybody mistook it for some other Korhaan but that you blatantly ignored my tip regarding the Western Cape (which is the only region where Southern Black Korhaan occurs) is shocking :shock: I was tempted to subtract penalty points for everyone who ID'ed this as a Southern Black Korhaan :twisted:


Hey! Southern Black Korhaan occurs in the Northern Cape Province also! :lol: (We'll, I've certainly seen them between Garies & Koringkorrelbaai (Namaqua National Park).

But thanks for the tip in any case, that was the only reason I could choose between Southern & Northern Black Korhaan :thumbs_up:

This may be a good thing! I'll need at least two weeks to attempt ID's in all the birds in adrianp's LBJ thriller :shock: :slap: .... so maybe adrianp's challenge should run over two weeks :lol:

8/9 for me :). Well done to all scores. This put the challenge back into the "Bird ID Challenge." It really forced me to get to grips with these LBJs.

I must give a lot of credit to the LBJ book published by Chamberlain's last year. It makes a massive difference.
