A new Bird Identification Challenge is now available for our members.  The theme is "Wonderful Wanderers"; it focuses on seabirds that are constantly on the wing - Petrels, Shearwaters and Albatrosses.  This is the first ID Challenge from our new ID Challenge Coordinators, McKinley Moens and Diana Womersley.  This one was set by McKinley, and in a change from previous ID Challenges, it requires you to do a little more than just identify the species; there are three associated questions, which are displayed in the ID Challenge page.

This challenge will consist of two rounds, with twelve images in each.  Each round will be open for two weeks.  Round 1 opens on 12th May, and will close on 26th May, when it will be replaced with Round 2.  To access the ID Challenge, you must be logged in to the website; when you are, the ID Challenge will be available on the Photo Gallery menu.  Simply open that page, enter your answers for each image in the comments box under the image, then click the Submit button at the bottom of the page to submit your answers.  A copy of your answers will be emailed to you.

Enjoy this Challenge!
