    Rescued baby bird in Modesto, California. Species and feeding recommendations?

    Would it be possible to bring it back to where it was? Unless it is injured, it seems to be at the age at which it should be outside of it's nest with it's parents (espically if it can almost fly).

    Bird ID - taken on South Downs Way near Storrington, Sussex UK. Sunday 18th June

    I'm 99% sure it's a corn bunting, as the stripes on it's body, beak, body shape etc match a corn bunting. If you could send the original file that would be helpful to be 100% sure, but otherwise it's still pretty clear that it's a corn bunting.

    Marsh or willow tit

    A feature that makes marsh tits and willow tits easier to differentiate is this brown line towards the back of the "cheek" visible in marsh tit, while a willow tit would have its entire cheek white (like the one in the image sent by Paul).

    Urgent ID help please. Near Cluj Napoca, Romania

    It's very sad to hear what these people have done. If it's bee-eaters the act was very likely done by some beekeepers. Did you contact authorities? What they did is not normal.

    Is this a leucistic magpie or blackbird?

    Isnt the official name rosy starling? Either way, awesome observation, I'm a bit jealous!

    Awesome image! For a second I thought the one on top was a firecrest.

    Avian misnomers

    Indigo bunting - much closer to blue than indigo Goldcrest and Firecrest - pretty much the same colored crest

    I'd say it's a Eurasian Hobby.
