Quiz #42

A little tougher this week with two birds very similar in jizz and a bird seldom seen. As this is my final quiz, I will add 2 points for getting all the names correct . Not the old one, part of one or the scientific one, though the last is bound to impress! :mrgreen:

So, this is out of a possible 13 points... :wink:

I hope this topic isn't going to go the same way as the Bird ID challenge with only a few participants. This is such a good forum in which to discover the huge number of birds.

Many thanks to all the 'mites to set these challenges for us :clap: :clap: :clap: . Also to everyone who participates. :clap: :clap: :clap: We want to keep it alive.

This week's batch is quite tricky, so as to be a little challenging but I thought you guys did very well to be honest.

Thanks to everyone who joined in - a bird quiz without birders is like....well, you get the point.

Thanks everyone! :thumbs_up: :gflower:
