I just went back in the archives to the original blog to see what I thought the bird was. I was of course completely wrong but I see Kim said it was a village indigo bird. She was at least closer.

One of the reasons I love birding! Very unpredictable & can bowl one out! Maybe a good option is to have more than one bird book for comparison purposes.

Hello James,
It sounds like it is very difficult to identify certain species! ? I’m impressed! I think you have done a very good job! My plan is to buy a much bigger and better birdbook because I love your bird challenge then maybe one could have a chance to get it right! ? Even if one don’t get it right it is a beautiful way of learning more about birds!

Don’t worry, I love reading posts like this!
