@Sky - Without a book I am able to ID 4 or 5. It is a bit difficult to ID birds with my book at work. I will send my answers tonight for review. :)

Thank you for challenge # 10 Sky! :doh:

@ Panekoek: I don't think it is ever too late to enter Panekoek! I have entered from #8, and nobody complained! Do try it! Not only is it great fun, but you also learn a lot! :thumbs_up:
