Greets folks, time for Challenge #47. Actually, it's not quite time yet, it's only supposed to go up tomorrow but I feel safer posting it now as I know that I'm going to be swamped tomorrow.

But before I post anything, an important announcement. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT send your answers to me. I will be leaving for northern Namibia on Saturday and will not be able to score your entries and respond. I've sent the answers to hilda so please send your entries to her.

OK, so here we go.

Bird #1
Image

Bird #2
Image

Bird #3
Image

Bird #4
Image

Bird #5
Image

Bird #6
Image

Bird #7
Image

Bird #8
Image

Bird #9
Image

Bird #10
Image

Have fun and see you in the new year (hopefully with a lifelist that is 4 birds stronger :D )

Challenge #46 Answers
Sorry for the delay! Line problem again! Only 6 people took part in this one.

#1 Corn Crake: The best clue is the very rufous panel in the wing.
Image

#2 African Goshawk:They best clue is the grey.
Image

#3 White-breasted Alethe: a VERY shy bird in the undergrowth of the forest. Combination of the white breast, chestnut back and grey head makes this one unmistakable.
Image

#4 East-Cost Akalat: The greyish blue around the eye with the orange throat and white belly is the best clues.
Image

#5 Chestnut-fronted Helmet-shrike: very straight forward, everyone got this one.
Image

#6 Spectacled Weaver: The black line through the eye was the clue, and uniform greenish back.
Image

#7 Yellow-breasted Pipit: also an easy one, most got this one. Has a very bold marked back and lacks the yellow eyebrow of Yellow-throated Longclaw.
Image

#8 Grey Francolin: the best clue was the speckled throat.

Sorry that I did not have the time for this one :( There were a lot of new birds and I would have been able to get an absolute minimum of 2 right answers :lol: :lol:

Hi 'mites! :hello:

I am just a little bit concerned. Up to now, I haven't received any entries for Challenge #47, posted by Deefstes on Friday. Lizet only received 6 entries for #46! :(

Is there no interest anymore, or has everybody already left on holiday? :hmz:

My SO and I cannot participate officially, since I have the answers! :tongue:

Come on 'mites! Deefstes will be very disappointed to find out that nobody sent in answers on this last challenge of 2012! :naughty:

We are leaving on Sunday for 2 1/2 months and I am very busy trying to get myself organised and others informed, but I will try to do it little by little, when I have a moment. Might be good for calming down too :wink:

That's true Ladybirder! I'm just being anxious about everybody going on holiday! You have until Friday! :thumbs_up:

@ Micetta: Where are you going for 2,5 months? That is a loooong holiday! Enjoy! :dance: :dance:
