Geoffrey thanks for these quizzes, I enjoyed my only entry.  They obviously require a fair effort both to prepare and to 'mark', but (especially this last and somewhat easier one) are greatly appreciated by at least this participant. I remain mystified by numbers 5 & 6 and need a reality check to prepare for my next attempt at the Spring quizzes.  On my computer these both are distinctly orange/pink.  Do some kookaburras actually have some pink plumage, or is this just my monitor or a photographic artifact?  Likewise, the Spotless Crake which I wouldn't recognise anyway, from my book has no pink/orange at all, just a very brown kind of brown, so ... same question.

Thanks again
