    Spanish Sparrow open doors

    Thanks! Believe me, I would have given my right arm to have that on video. But if anyone go birding on Malta. Sit in the departure hall looking at the glass doors to the outdoor smoking area. Keep the video camera ready. But I will for sure keep it in mind if I go back! Happy Easter Aladdin

    Tawny pipit this afternoon on Malta

    Dear members and bird watchers! I have ID this bird as a Tawny Pipit. Very poor pictures against the sun. But the sound recording is not for any Tawny pipit I can hear on Xano-Canto Maybe the recording is of a insect, but the sound disappeared and got weaker when the bird flew to another...
