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.
