Dear participants,

I want to draw your attention to a training session in Birdlife SA where between 20 and 40 participants are needed to arrange such a training session. :wink:

Kindly read here: Birdlife SA Training in Pretoria Area.

Please PM me asap should you be interested, since time is running out for all the arrangements. :thumbs_up:

Dear all,

Please take note that the training session in Birdlife SA in the Pretoria area will no longer take place, since it is very difficult for 'mites who are working full time to take time off from work to attend such a session for two days. :thumbs_up:

We have had 12 'mites participating thus far... I'm hoping a few more will pitch up. :pray: :whistle:

My experience in the past has been that the numbers dwindle when the toughness level goes up! :twisted:

I'll post the answers around tea time...

:thumbs_up: Johan van Rensburg...

When he toughness level goes up the time investment required also goes up unfortunately. :wall: And when the tough challenge coincide with a busy week, well....

Don't wait for my entry, I'm not even halfway yet, and will in no way get the rest of the way there today :lol:

This time, I'll just have fun reading the answers when you post them...

Dabchick, I'm with you on this one!!

I have sent in a "sort of" entry - left out 3 birds altogether and am not happy with most my other choices.

Will eagerly await the correct answers.

Thanks Johan!

Failed miserably with #4 - only 3.5/10 :wall: :slap: :wall: :slap: :wall: A real stinker of a quiz- but that's what we all need to improve our birding skills. :big_eyes:

I excelled myself with 3/10!

Looking forward to seeing the correct answers and, hopefully, learning from them.

Time was my enemy this week as well. :wall: :wall: :wall: I'll just wait for the answers, no use in guessing without investing anytime in the challenge. Maybe for the super difficult :evil: challenges we need a bit more time...maybe 2 weekends?
