Answers to 1428

Big thank you to the ducklings that tried my challenge! I had 6 ducklings with an avg score of 94%!!
I think Sky has taught us well - or my challenge was too easy! :thumbs_up:

1.African Harrier Hawk - the yellow bare facial skin is the give away!
Image

2.bronze mannikin - no problems here!
Image

3. Yellow billed storks and marabou storks - I was a little tricky not telling you that there were 2 species - it is clear however that there are a few storks that have less white on the under wings with no red facial skin... the only stork this can be is the marabou - the abdim's stork has a dark neck and the woollynecked has a dark chest...
Image

4.ostritch - no problems here - our iconic 2 toed bird.
Image

5. african paradise flycatcher - even though a bit blurry - no problems!
Image


6. dwarf bittern - no problems!

7. black backed puff back - a smallish black bird with white under, white edge to the black primaries is a feature. also has a shorter tail than the flycatcher/boubous
Image

8. violet eared waxbill - a jewel of the bush - no problems!
Image

9. Marico flycatcher - a strong contrast between upper and lower parts separates this flycatcher from the rest.
Image


10. common waxbill - no problems
Image

Thanks again :gflower:
