I am relatively new to birding (18 months) and so far have 232 on my list.
However I only have 105 photos, and some of those aren't very good. :redface:

I only spend 6 months each year in Southern Africa, but I'm due back in November for a 4 month stay in Phala, and a 2 month stay in P Edward, so ............watch this space!!!

To the highlighted 'mites: why not consider running a few Bird ID Challenges? Looks like you've got lots of piccies to share and from what I gather from the ID threads, you know your stuff :gflower:

Good Evening Dugong.

I guess I could do one or two quizzes. It's just a case of not always being around to be able to do one. Who is currently in charge of the quizzes?

Hilda has "volunteered" :twisted: to "manage" the challenge. She is currently enjoying some time in KNP, but will be back soon to take up that task. She will coordinate when the various challenge masters will have to do their stints. If you can get those 'mites highlighted in Dugong's post to participate, a bright and rosy future awaits... :clap: :clap: :clap:
