Default Bird Challenge June Beaks and Feet

Thank you to the other 8 members who took the time to enter last months challenge, please award Karma to all that participated. This was one of the worst supported challenges since I started here in 2006. I realise there is a slowing down of all forums on the internet but it begs the question 'why have a monthly challenge?' I presume by the lack of participants that monthly challenges have run their course and no one's really interested anymore. Thanks to Gautam and Gil for filling in when I've been unavailable and thank you to the few people that have given me suggestions for the challenges. This will be my last monthly challenge unless persuaded by members that we need to keep it going or someone decides to take on the monthly task.
This month can we see as many different beaks or feet and again, Karma will be awarded for correct entries.

Had to go back a long way to find this - I'll try to take a suitable photo in the next few weeks.

Kevin: I think the best indication of the popularity of a challenge is the number of views. The bird challenge in Feb was viewed by 966 people; Mar, 1066 (you folks in the UK better recognize that number ); April, 780; and even May had 480 views. That's pretty good!


Part of the problem last month was I don't think many of us have shots of young birds. I only entered once because I could only find one shot that fit the challenge.


Also, PC - and I assume for others - is almost unusable at times. It locks up and won't load pages. this happens on both Chrome and Firefox. It can be very frustrating, especially if trying to upload shots.


One suggestion: Perhaps post in the regular portion of the forum requesting more participation in the Challenges -- I suspect a fair number of folks don't normally check the challenge posts.


If you find the Challenges are too much trouble, I think we will all understand, but they have been a lot of fun.

Took four attempts to upload these shots. Am I the only one having problems with the forum being dysfunctional?
