What? No one has a photo of a Chickadee? The ones I have are all Carolina, but surely someone has a Black-capped Chickadee.

Ive got the BCCH photo but no idea what to play next... So I didn't want to finish a 4-of-a-kind and not move us on.

Here's your Black-capped Chickadee

Now, somebody start the next turn, because I don't have any idea what would be good, and my supply of photos is depleted...

If I may, bird's names with a country included, with the exception 'America' which has already gone before...

With no shame I'll take the easy one.

I have a bunch of New Zealand candidates, but I'll use one I haven't used before.
This is my only photo (and sighting) of a New Zealand Grebe:

I thought about ending up with a Turkey Vulture but have opted for this rather distant Woodpecker seen in Bulgaria.

That Broadbill is cool. Even though it is a long way off, it is a great photo. It really gives a sense of what it would be like to see that bird in the wild!

This one is going to be tough, I think. There are a number of "color"-and-"color" birds in the world, and I've seen a few of them but I don't have photos of anything except the only US species. So I am taking the low-hanging fruit...

I might have a blurry photo of a Black-and-yellow Silky Flycatcher somewhere, but otherwise I'm out of this one.

Well, the rules say that I can't follow my own, but I have another one to add if the committee allows it :P

After 24 hours, you can go again. 24 hours has passed (and then some).
So, finish this one off.

Well darn, I thought I had a picture of a Blue-and-white Swallows from Costa Rica. Must have been in the one memory stick that died on me on that trip...

Damn, didn't get in early enough to get the Barred Owl.

Barred Becard? That's an awesome bird name (and bird!).

Here's a blurry shot of my only other Barred bird I have photographed -

It's been awhile. This past winter, I decided to try to get a photo of a "barred" bird. When I finally saw one, I realized that I've had a photo of this bird all along. It just took going back to Sulawesi to remind me.

I had to look around a bit to find a decent new category. I think we can manage Horned.
Here's a Horned Screamer from Venezuela.

Glad to see this resurrected! I had forgotten where it died. Turns out I had another "barred" bird photo I took more recently, but since it has another part to its name I'm glad I saved it in case that comes up.

I do have a somewhat lame Horned bird... Horned Lark (juvenile)

I've seen maybe 3 or 4 species with Cinnamon in the name. The only one I have a photo of was the one you posted. If we don't get any more in a week or so, we can try something else.
