Name a Bird You've Photographed (3 Viewers)

Got me. I wasn't playing over the past few days, so since everyone kept going I ignored
I'm confused.
I posted the Pied Cormorant and I see it as 486. Pied Cormorant, Aus. Above that is 485. Madeiran Chaffinch Madeira, Portugal, posted by Paul.
The only relationship is consecutive numbers. Is there supposed to be a relationship between adjacent images, or something?

In theory - yes - that is the intention. See the first post.

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 bird in a row (after yourself)
5. At least to start off with, try and link the bird you post with the previous bird
6. Add your photo as an attached file rather than in post as this should make each post slightly smaller, so 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.

Good Luck!

But no worries. Nice pics. 😀

All the best

Another Lapwing species...

498. Northern Lapwing Somerset, England

A chick from my patch.

This could be another story behind the photo. My job tomorrow is drafting an email to my local Wildlife Trust who clearly want to abandon an adjacent reserve copying in the local authority (an adjacent landowner) & Natural England (who have some Countryside Stewardship Agreements with local farmers as the area is a SSSI). We have spent some time liaising with both the local authority and Natural England but our Wildlife Trust is the least responsive and simply does not engage. I go to sleep tonight knowing that it will make no difference and that our conservation organisations - or at least this one - are incompetent but draft this tonight so that I still find the energy in the morning to do what I need to do to at least try and make a difference...

All the best

Paul

My bad, sorry I read the post title and didn’t realize that it was only for wood peckers.
No, it's not that.

One bird needs to be linked to another somehow. Either by the same family, a similar word in the name, a body feature, a color, or something else like that.
