Hi Super Mongoose

Glad you are hooked :twisted: :)

You can PM until the day Sky posts his next challenge. #17 was posted on Thursday evening so you have a week to answer them.

If you need more time just give the teacher an apple :) or maybe

PM him to ask for a day or a few more hours.

OK - So my first foray resulted in 4/10 for Sky 17 and 7/8 for the Hatchling challenge. Was a lot of fun :think: and looking forward to the next one. :popcorn:

Ok guys, I've sent in my ducklings (and hatchlings) to Sky, it took me all night, did not sleep a wink.. :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:

It's turns out to be more addictive than chocolate and ice cream!!

[quote="Sky"]Hi Ducklings

Here are the answers to Sky 16
I said Don't be fooled by what looks obvious.
If I showed you this pic for nr 3 It would have been very easy
Image

The other birds that gave some problems were nr 1 , 5 and the BB
1 ) This bird is a Southern black flycatcher . The size and colour of the eye will rule out a forked tail drongo
Image

2 ) Greater Double collared sunbird - very little problems here
Image

3 ) Immature Southern bald Ibis
Image

4) Viloet-eared Waxbill - no problems
Image

5) Female Cape rock trush - The clouring on its breast distinguis it from the female Sentinel rock Thrush
Image

6) + 7) No Problems here
White-necked raven and a Cape Vulture
Image

8 ) Brown Hooded Kingfisher
Image

9) Southern Pochard
Image

10) Pin tailed Whydah
Image


and the BB a Juvenile Buff streaked chat. I also had to consult Johan van Rensburg to get this Id
Image

Thanks again for entering

:dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

So, I got my scores! Thrilled to bits!

Hatchlings: 7/8, and the the wrong one I only had the wrong sub specie :dance: :dance:

Ducklings Sky 17: 5/10 + the BB, and two of the wrongs ones I also had the wrong sub specie :dance: :dance:

Now to figure out my mistakes, the fun continues!

Thanx Sky for all the hard work so we can have fun! :gflower: :k

BTW, what does "BB" stand for?

Highland and Super Mongoose, well done on your hatchlings, and not too bad for the ducklings! Keep on trying and enjoy! :clap: :clap:

Louis Dreyer, well done on both! :dance: :dance:

I got 8/10 for Sky 17, and believe me or not, my BB was correct for a change! :D
