I do have some old Minolta gear which I inherited, but the extenders won't fit onto the 100-300G lens which I do have. I do now realize, thanks to your response, Justin, that I was confusing this...

Ids from Peru

I was very pleased with the very good resources that are available these days for identifying (mostly) butterflies from far flung places these days.

Amazonia Lodge, Peru queries

More pictures, these all taken in early August last summer, at Amazonia Lodge, very near the lodge.

Number 1: This is a severe crop of an image that's not really sharp. The head does look plain with...

Specatcled Red(White)start is an excellent idea for No 5 - there's even a bit of white visible on the tips of the tail. Sorry the other photos are so bad. I like all of Fritz's suggestions.

The first is Wattled Starling, the second Purple Grenadier, I think, and the Cuckoo in four is African Emerald, in my opinion.
