Thank you, Pumbaa.

I got 8/10 - the two I was not sure of, I did, in fact, get wrong. I'm happy because I did the Challenge in a hurry - had spent too much "birding" time watching the Australian Open Tennis!!

I will try to get #3 done, but we are going away on Thursday, so will have to get a move on.

I hope Pic # 6 is now showing :hmz:


Hi-Imax,

I've apologize for my previous submission on 26/1/2014 that was incorrect as I only identified 5 instead of 8 bird on number 6.
It seem my apology did not reached you.
I've re-submitted again today.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Thanks
Glasogie.
