GAME: name that bird!

1,603 posts in this topic

@Soukous Well you’re right about one thing colour does come into its name, but I was being deliberately mean with my choice of photo, since the bird I posted doesn’t actually have any of the colour concerned on it.

 

@lmSA84 That’s a good guess because, I have just read some information on my bird and it did say that the females and young males are often mistaken for Chopi blackbirds.

 

What you really need is a photo of a mature male, he looks like this.

That should make it a tiny bit easier.
