Know The Birds by Names

Let's meet here with some birds, whom I only met in the wilderness. Identifying these birds were tougher than photographing them. I named them on my best effort basis. So, if you find any of them were not named correctly, Please email me  or leave a comment with your suggestion. I photographed all this birds and own the copyright. If you want to buy any of this photo, please email me with details.
