Hi Laurie,
I'm not 100% confident on this one for the northern hemisphere & I as I don't know of any specific birding sites within this country I will have to be vague & say somewhere in Iran. Fire-fronted Serin, Pine Bunting, Isabelline Shrike, Brown Dipper & Booted Warbler all have rather patchy ranges which cross over in this part of the world. The one that throws me though is that Northern Hawk Owl ? maybe a disoriented summer vagrant??!!

Thanks Harvey.  My bid would have been for Bundjalung NP, but I didn't get
around to letting you know that.

Here are two from me - one for Australians (Austral Autumn), and one for any
Northern Hemisphere (Northern Summer) birders.  Simple day lists in both
cases.  I'll post the guesses and results in a couple of days.
