Hi Sparrow,

Too right! - I'd probably find it easier to name a top 100, than a top 10. And yes, it would be a slightly different set each time I listed them.

I'd generally only pick from birds I've seen myself; could do either county, country or world, I'd have a different selection for each.

Hi Sparrow,

Had to look that one up, I've never been to Australia so don't know about them. Also called Long-tailed Finch. Have you been to Australia and seen them?

Found some other pics on the web, though:

http://frank.sundgaard.com/frank/pho...0825-3027c.jpg
http://www.mangoverde.com/birdsound/...0000005514.jpg

Inevitably, they are copyright, so they can't go on the BF gallery

I have some top unseen birds. Always have been fascinated by oxpeckers and to see real antbirds in action. With ants. In the jungle.
