Thank you for the answers to #36/2014 Imax! I'm still very satisfied with my score! :thumbs_up:

Great score for Johan's challenge! And also without using a guide? You people who can do these challenges without using a bird guide amaze me! :clap: :clap:

Oh my word :big_eyes: I found this topic and being a bird newbie, thought it would be a great way to learn my birds. Phew, so many of them look the same to me. :?

I think I will just remain in the background quietly and learn from you all :? Not much I can contribute I am afraid.

If there happens to be something that I know, I will put my pennies worth in, but I am not very good with the birds!!! Unless it's the obvious.

Welcome to the toughie, Tessa G. It is a great way to learn about our feathered friends :thumbs_up: The guys who set these challenges really know their birds :thumbs_up:

Know the feeling about them looking the same....... Didn't realise there are so many :hmz:

However there is an easier one at Birding School for Ducklings which you can do alongside the hard one. A recent challenge is here

viewtopic.php?f=46&t=35621&start=1552

The answers are a page or so later along with Sky's useful pointers in ID- ing.

Hope you enjoy both sets and look forward to seeing your scores :clap: :clap:
