    Ivory-billed Woodpecker (formerly updates)

    but it's really sweet! you wouldn't even guess they were looking for woodpeckers from reading the posts. It's nice to know they're eating well mind, and even better to know they're still hearing 'possible double-knocks', looking for a short while and then clearing off the next morning. (Jan...

    Norfolk birding

    Dave Farrow has posted some pics of the D-b Barn Owl (L Stratton) on RBA nice pix of a very attractive bird - in one pic the bird looks like a bit like a Bay Owl. Rural - thanks for the Teal link

    Dave I can see what you mean, I just think you're obsessed with methodology and philosophy to the point of almost deliberate obtuseness I'm a bad scientist cos I use soundbites I guess, and can't be bothered to write reams of irrelevance on an internet forum but hey, a band I like sing this...

    White-eye, Hangzhou, China, Jan 08

    looks like Japanese Kev oriental has a yellow stripe down the belly# I think they overlap a little but Japanese is a more eastern bird as the name intimates

    Norfolk birding

    Hi Chris Unfotuntately it moved on in early January. Hopefully the bird in Long Stratton will hang around. I still don't really know what these birds are or if they're within the variation of dark female Hens. Nice to see mind. Not sure how many Norfolk birds have occurred inland though...

    Warbler ? - Hangzhou, China, Jan 08

    I think it's an Aethopyga sunbird seems to have a shortish bill and some white in the tail so possibly a Fork-tailed I think distribution is ok too

    Dave I'm sure there's even more mileage for some Popper and logic games on this thread: http://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=106640 get stuck in... :t: Tim

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker (formerly updates)

    But Dave, when people who are well-versed in identifying birds in the field or have extensive experience of searching for secretive birds, have looked (objectively, I hope) at the evidence and come to the conclusion that errors have been made and are still being made, that doesn't suddenly make...

    Leaf Warbler? - Hangzhou, China, Jan 08

    amongst other things, it has pale-tipped dark tertials (like YBr and Pallas's etc) and the secondaries aren't right either. It's also very pale below and has dark-centred greater covs and a shadow below the greater covs etc. The wing just doesn't look right for a Blyth's / White-tailed type...
