One rule: if you got it right, you're next to post an image of a bird (if it's not your own, get one off the net, but please obtain the copyright holder's permission beforehand, and put a copyright-tag!)



I'll start.

What species is this?

LBJ?

Warning, if any safari camps wish to employ me as a guide, I expect a salary far, far, more commensurate than my actual experience!

No idea (my field guides for African birds are limited) :D

But I am most relieved that Jochen added "copyright holder's permission" to "copyright tag" as a condition of lifting any pics from the 'net. Far too many people on the 'net think that they can use any images from the 'net as long as they acknowledge copyright. Wrong. Permission is absolutely necessary as well.

I get very angry about the disrespect which is shown for copyright. My wife and I have successfully sued a company for using one of her pics from the internet without permission, and I have had my images removed from a website which failed to get my permission to use them. Beware! It might cost you.

Well, this one is certainly the most photographed bird in Africa. Some people call it 'ABR'.

What's the name?

Wow, this topic kicked off fast.

FWIW; you were right, Dikdik: my pic was a common bulbul.


Nyama, this one's so easy I'm gonna let a rookie have a go.

Cmon Nyama,

You can do better than that. Letís leave it to someone else.

Should we call it a LBR?

:P

OK I'll state the obvious - its a Lilac breasted Roller - one of the few birds I'm able to recognise.

OK, so whats this one ? I'm being kind and not going for an LBJ. :D
