Hi Mwt,

OWN had ID'd 7 & 9 for you. (I agree with his ID's)

Hope this helps.

Just seen PL's post as I hit the submit button. I think you have them all now between us :D

What's the worst that can happen OWN? You can get an ID wrong but at least you tried and then if someone corrects you go and see why they said so. This way you will learn so much faster and it will stick much easier if you put a bit of work into it! :thumbs_up:

Can one of the kind mites on this forum please confirm the identity of these birdies.

Are you also able to tell me what this is. Seen at Afsaal amongst a flock of Arrow Marked Bablers.

Thanks so much.

Thanks so much. I am very new to birding and try to look them up, but sometimes it is all guess work. At least some of my guesses were right! :dance: :dance: :thumbs_up:

:hmz: And I can start ticking off my list! :whistle: :whistle:

Yesterday I was helped to load photos. Today I'll be grateful for confirmation of names, for years I've called one of the mousebirds rosey faced- I now know its called redfaced. So I'm asking for help with these before I get into bad habits and learn the wrong name.

Thanks WTM, I've a list of old and new names. I think I'll have to start the task of writing the new names into my old book.
