Name a Bird You've Photographed (3 Viewers)

This is an idea I had, basically a copy of name a bird you've seen, but instead you have to have photographed it, and you need to post the photo when you name it.

We'll go with similar rules to the name a bird you've seen thread.

1. You have to have seen and photographed the bird - any photo's must be your own.
2. You cannot repeat a bird that someone else has already named.
3. You are allowed to make 3 wrong entries, after the 3rd you must sit out for the next 10 birds
4. You can't post two birds in a row (after yourself)
5. At least to start off with, try and link the bird you post with the previous bird (Name (i.e. Crow)), family, colour, body part)
6. Add your photo as an attached file rather than in post as this should make each post slightly smaller, meaning slightly less scrolling!

Below is a link to a spreadsheet which will hold all the birds named (if this goes as well as the name a bird you've seen thread we will need one!) If anyone wants to help keep it updated LMK (Let Me Know}.

New Spreadsheet here (not fully up to date yet (14 April 2024))
Now you should be able to search the scientific name to see whether or not the species you are attempting to add has been posted previously.

Good Luck!

A bit confused by the Spreadsheet Ben. :unsure:

Your link shows there are 50 separate spread sheets, but whichever sheet number I click on it shows Sheet No 1?

Later on, to see if a bird has been played, it would be almost impossible to search through 50 sheets.

Why not put all the sheets into one Workbook. At least you can do a single search that way.

However, as only two columns are used, perhaps have Colums A & B from 1-99 Columns D & E 100 - 199 Columns F & G 200-299??

Just thoughts

Those numbers aren't seperate sheets but just what I had written on the spreadsheet when I copied the link - the numbers from 1-300
It is a bit confusing though, I can see what you were thinking!
The list will just be going straight down - similar to the Name a Bird You've seen thread, so you can search the whole doc to see if something has or hasn't been mentioned before.

LOL I've not looked at that thread since soon after I started adding entries. I'd no real need to once I'd run out of birds!!

I'll have a look at it later (going out shortly)
