Confirm Ids from Aguas Caliente, Peru

The first two birds are just a case of viewing from a a slightly unusual angle. I think the first one (two photos) is Grey-necked Wood-Wren, and the second a Greater Kiskadee (although the bill does...

Do you have any more info, Justin, on which 1.4 extenders for A-mount fit are `good quality'? I've been variously tempted to get one, but the variety of models, some of which are not good at all,...

More pictures, these all taken in early August last summer, at Amazonia Lodge, very near the lodge.

Specatcled Red(White)start is an excellent idea for No 5 - there's even a bit of white visible on the tips of the tail. Sorry the other photos are so bad. I like all of Fritz's suggestions.

The first is Wattled Starling, the second Purple Grenadier, I think, and the Cuckoo in four is African Emerald, in my opinion.
