[UNCLASSIFIED] tick Challenge

Ticking can become a bit boring. The more species you have ticked off the harder it becomes to tick new species. To spice it up I challenge people to tick 'breeding' records of species. And to submit them to COG (yes I know I am one of the slack people).


For all those photographers out there, I challenge you to take good photos of female birds and juveniles. These are often much harder to ID than adult males and it will be a valuable contribution to Ornithology. Even better would be to have the bird's age attached to the photo (yes you may have to follow the birds through the breeding/life cycle).


I, myself, am particularly interested in people getting good photos of juvenile and immature whistlers, woodswallows and grey-vs pied currawongs. To assist with ID.

[I am a very bad photographer].
