common adjective was ‘Australian’ and the double was ‘Painted’.
It was a Painted Honeyeater that appeared twice. 2, 4, 16b, 26, 30

half point for the ingenious ‘Welcome Swallow’).

Steve and Richard tied for most correct on 19, and Richard edged ahead with
more correct nouns. There were 5 that nobody got, and here they are, to
show how easy it was:
There were more entries for the somewhat easier Quiz 5,
