Let’s play Name That Bird!
This is the first Moderator sponsored game, and will have a One of a Kind prize for the winner…our very own Allee will make you a custom signature that includes a banner showing you won for bragging rights!

It’s pretty simple. There are 40 pictures of birds, each one of which is numbered. These pictures are representations of each species, and not necessarily pictures of actual member’s birds. Members can enter once a day about only one of the 40 birds (extra posts from a member won’t count and someone can steal your answers who hasn’t played yet that day).

For extra points, we would also like to know which members on the forum have one or more of each bird. Not every species is owned by a member, but most are. You can name more than one member in your entry. More extra points for knowing their bird’s names! The species must be correct for the member’s birds to count in your post.
The search function in the forum will come in quite handy with finding members birds!

The game ends when all 40 birds have been identified. Twice a day I will move the pictures that have been guessed correctly into the member’s post who got it right to make it easier to see which pictures are still available for guesses. In between those times, please just look through the posts to see.

Points will be awarded as follows:
Species of the bird (exact Species, such as Moluccan Cockatoo, not just Cockatoo)
3 Points
Member Who Owns One:
2 Points for each Different Member
Member’s Birds Names:
1 Point For Each



For Example:
Anansi is the first to play, and he guesses bird number 50. His entry reads like this:
#50 — Zebra Finch
Members: Terry57 ,Bird’s Name: Pete, Herschel and Bob
Allee, Bird’s name: Dave

Anansi’s Point Breakdown:
Species: 3 Points
Member’s with a Zebra Finch: 4 (2 For Terry57, 2 for Allee)
Bird’s Names: 4 Points ( 1 Each for Pete, Herschel, Bob and Dave)
His total would be: 11 Points
A huge thanks to Meika’s BirdHouse (and others) for allowing me to use many of their wonderful pictures. The others will have to remain nameless until the game is over:)

What a beautiful collection of bird pics you've gathered for this game, Terr! Most impressive!

Good luck to all contestants!
 
It is a lovely collection of avians! I'm rather alarmed that I can't identify more species without cheating. Good thing the contest is for members only.
 
Bird number 10=Budgie
Terry57 has two budgies named Mallie and Sawyer
RavensGryf has 3 budgies named Twigs Mink and the Adorable Chip
And Allee has two budgies named Piper and Twinkle

Fun game! I'm going to pick one that won't produce many points because some of the species that are widely owned I'd NEVER get all of the owners and names!
So, I pick #14 - Blue throated macaw.
thekarens have Zoe
Jordan has Indigo
I have Teagan
Bobby34231 (who hasn't visited the forum for 2 years but is still a member) has Quincy

I have my eye on another one of the photos above - I can't wait to see if the pic is a member's bird!
