Mystery - Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, Mar'16

So at 1800m altitude.

Whats this then? Ive possibly whittled it down to flycatcher/bulbul/babbler/drongo but even that could be wrong.

Steppe Eagle? Simien Mountains, Ethiopia

Last March. I suppose my concern is just how broad the wings look, as well as being generally rubbish with raptors.

Flock of finches/accentors, Nepal.

Perhaps 3500m altitude, March this year, north of Namche.

Part of a flock of maybe a hundred birds or so.

No idea - ~3500m altitude, Nepal, Himalayas

Flying next to (or behind?) A himalayan vulture, what could this be? There were lots of H.Vultures in this group. The odd large billed crow and red-billed chough also.

A little way above Namche...
