Name a Bird You've Seen 2 (1 Viewer)


Will Jones
Some members might remember that about 10 years ago there was a fun thread where we took it in turns to name a bird that we had seen, with no repeats, to see how far down the global species list we could get. What with the numerous taxonomic changes, with new species added to our personal lists and with new forum members, let's have another round. I have copied the rules from the last thread:


As the thread is now so far advanced the rules have been slightly amended:

1. You have to have seen the bird
2. You mustn't repeat a bird that someone else has already named
3. You are allowed to make 3 wrong entries, after the 3rd wrong entry then you must sit it out for the next 10 birds.
4. You can't post straight after yourself
5. Where possible, try to link the bird name you propose with the previous species on the thread.

Who will be the top players this time around? Who will still be in at the very end? Who will keep getting the rules muddled? Let's find out!

Here is a link to the species played so far and who played them. I've converted most of the names to the IOC name, though note that there are a few species played that the IOC doesn't recognise. I will try to update the list on a roughly daily basis.
