Was this challenge too difficult for a "Birding school" challenge? It would be very useful if everybody expressed their sincere opinion and pointing out where it was too difficult........not for getting it right , but not helpful for learning something new


Definitely not too difficult for "Birding School" Micetta! One might not get them all right, but that is why it is called a challenge and a school! :w:

MY APOLOGIES!

Dear fellow Ducklings,

I apologise for a huge mistake that I have made this week! The current Duck 38 should actually be Duck 37. Please just change the number. :thumbs_up:

The biggest mistake was not to remind Micetta or inform you about who is going to post Duck 38 on Monday! :wall:

Well, Micetta fortunately agreed at this very late stage to still post Duck 38 on Monday, 1 July 2013, which is really appreciated! Thank you Micetta! :gflower:

I humbly apologise for any inconvenience to anybody in this regard! :redface:

My score for Duck 37 is 8/10 plus the BB! :dance:

7. Image

Black-crowned night-heron, juvenile ( Orange eye; the juv. green backed heron has a yellow eye)
