    Last of a handful from a quick holiday: broad-winged hawk in St Vincent.

    Grey-backed passerine, Roseau, Dominica, 10 December

    Yes, I thought there was yellow there as well. There were plenty of grey kingbirds around elsewhere but they did not sit like that, they were sort of bolder.

    Grey-backed passerine, Roseau, Dominica, 10 December

    Got from a coach, when really looking at the ostensibly headless dove on the right, but I'm more confused about the little chap on the left...

    Sutton Park

    Goosanders are back at Keeper's Pool - this time an actual flock of them, and this time several males as well as females - I've only seen one male before. Also half-a-dozen cormorants in Blackroot, highest number I've seen.

    Standing on a boom with some black-headed gulls...common gull. Could be the most mundane entry on this thread...

    Laughing gull?, Flores, Guatemala, November 2014

    Going through old pics I noticed this rather poor one, but enough to show a white tail underside with black tips. I assume a gull but not a big one.

    Question: biggest genus?

    Thanks everyone. So Zosterops looks like the winner and I've never seen any. That gives me an ambition. :)

    Question: biggest genus?

    Noticed that I think I have seen ten Corvus and ten Turdus. So I wondered which genus has the most species? I know this is a moving target but would be interested on the general views. Larus perhaps? I tried googling but it kept giving me e.g. elephant birds...

    Songbird, Stenness, Shetland, July 2011

    Going through some old pics I found this one which I had not noticed before - grey head, rufous back, pale underneath. Sort of wheatear mask but looks too fat to be one of them. Grateful for any ideas.

    First one this year? Lockdown obviously hitting hard. Pied flycatcher at Malham Tarn in Yorkshire.

    Birmingham City Centre

    They're also plentiful in the suburbs when the weather turns better, they seem to hide in winter.
