Hi Gang,


As someone who just posted a report with 2 un-tickable sightings, I am
assuming I am partly to blame for the question.


Yellow-throated Hanging Parrot flying at 400 miles an hour and identifiable
by call/options and paid guide only, but not really seen clearly is in my
book an un-tickable sighting. Even to the surprise of the guide...

Black-thighed Falconet seen at 2 km's through Bino's and even the Guide was
uncertain.... even when all other options exhausted, I declare an
un-tickable sighting also.


My bird list, My rules!

Can anyone explain to me what an untickable sighting is? As an avid
birdwatcher of nine years,I have recently started my life list(to those of
you who are feeling a little faint,sorry).I have heard this term used a few
times now and am a little confused.I assume (never a good idea); it to be a
bird that you are 99% sure of but not positive of.Surely this is a probable
sighting,as if you know what species it is,it is tickable.I am not trying to
be pedantic,but genuinely interested.Happy birding,Mark.
