    some goshawk or sparrowhawk, hyderabad november 2015

    Certainly looks longer tailed than any Sparrowhawks I've seen in UK or Europe, so makes sense it's a different race.

    Why are some people vehemently against reintroductions?

    This is true. Red Kite in parts of England would be a classic example of this. I now see these birds daily over my west London garden & have increased by a phenomenal amount.

    Eurasian Wigeon possible hybrid? California.

    Certainly doesn't look like a pure Eurasian Wigeon with the flank coloration.

    Male or female Mallard? - Eastern Ontario, Canada

    Male Mallard in winter plumage are at their most colourful as ducks in the Northern Hemisphere pair up in the winter. They go into a more cryptic eclipse plumage when they are flightless for a period in mid-late summer. By September Mallard drakes are quite striking again.

    What is this bird?

    Meadow Pipit-not a typical garden bird but one of open sites. Maybe harsh weather brought it in. I see small flocks this time of year locally in the west London suburbs, but I'd never expect one in my garden.
