Bird of the Week Challenge: 20th June - silhouette quiz

Hi all

 

Another week another challenge! This time another suggestion from one of our members - thanks Devster!

The goal this week is to post a silhouette of a bird (plus the general location) and have others guess what it is. The silhouette can be real or photoshopped (ie removing the bird from the picture). Takes a bit of effort but I think it will be fun. Whomever guesses correctly gets to post the next silhouette (they can pass and open it up to anyone else if they like as well).

 

Who will get in first...

I know. Sue posted the sihouette and I happened to snap one yesterday. I posted as a reply to that post but it came up as a separate post

Thanks Devster, I thought it was some sort of swallow. They move too fast even to get a decent look or are too far away. Maybe that is what these are. see photo...I see a wide variety of birds here in Port Hedland. W.A............ http://yourshot.nationalgeographic.com/profile/1252280/
