  1. Natascha, this is Oxyura jamaicensis
    I've found this site: http://www.rspb.org.uk/wildlife/birdguide/name/r/ruddyduck/index.aspx
    Maybe you would be able to find the other ones as well.

    1. If you're sure enough, feel free to identify it Jivko. I've done it now in this case, but identification is a community effort. If the owner doesn't do it, feel free to move in. Posted 8 years ago
      1. yes, I had an intention to do it this evening, instead I had moderated some plants species with unidentified divisions and/or classes. In some cases they are not well described in Wikipedia and hence the respective fields are left "Unknown". There are too many species to be amended.

        1. Thank you for doing that plant work, Jivko. It is actually a structural issue indeed. At Wikipedia, many plant species are ranked by "unknown" ranks. Example:


          Note the 3 "unranked" levels. They have correct values but I have no idea to which level to match them to in JungleDragon's 6 level system. This is a recurring issue with plants, and sometimes fungi, all other entries (animals) seem to be fine.
