PS: Birding Quiz: 2021

I have been asked a few times now if the participants of the previous quiz (2020) are automatically added to the new quiz? The answer is no, as I have deleted the old list a while ago. So, if you would like to get the quiz question then please send me a WharsApp (+27633294323) and I will add you 🐦

BIRDING QUIZ 2021

I will start a new bird quiz.

On occasion I will post a bird picture for the quiz participants to ID.

If you would like to participate then please send me a short WhatsApp message (+27633294323) and I will add you to the distribution list for the quiz.

Have fun!

Please note: These pictures will not be posted on Instagram/Facebook/MyBlog

BIRD WEDNESDAY & CHRISTMAS DAY

One of my favorite pictures of one of my favorite birds – a Malachite Kingfisher – as a special Christmas treat.

Enjoy the day wherever you are!

Bird Wednesday – Tawny Eagle

A few days ago I took this picture of a *Tawny Eagle* perched in the late afternoon, backlight by the sun. Tawny Eagles (Aquila rapax) are large, long-lived birds of prey. Like all eagles, they belong to the family Accipitridae. It is estimated that these beautiful birds can reach the age of 16.

Yesterday evening I took these pictures of a strange-looking bird. I am not certain, but I think it is a amelanistic form of a Dark-capped Bulbul. Any other thoughts? Thanks in advance for the input.
