Nice set Mark. I love the first one for that peek-a-boo composition.

Me too. These Chaffinches were very curious, as you can see in the second photo. They weren't affraid of humans at all, which made them an easy "target" for the human carrying that odd black box :lol:

Cool Crain! I know there are some groups which came to my country to breed, and with succes. Alas I never had the chance to see them in person.

A new one for the list! Never saw a Berthelot Pipit (Anthus berthelotii) before and probably never will again. Had to do a lot of searching through the avibase.org database to even ID the little guy.
