    Wood Ducks Juvenile or Eclipse? - Eastern Ontario, Canada

    They are males in eclipse as juveniles wouldn't have adult male bills at this time of year.

    Pied wagtail

    Looking between the tertials it doesn't look blackish so nothing there to indicate Pied or an intergrade. Cheers Roy

    yellow wagtails flavissima - identification criteria

    The adult bird doesn't look like a male flavissima at all looking at the head colour. I don't see female flavissima that look like that either. It could be an intergrade and I wouldn't like to say which two taxa are involved in that, or it could just be a flava. Cheers Roy

    Surrey UK - Small duck on River Wey

    I must admit when I first saw it I was thinking it was an escaped exotic but couldn't put a name to it so I wonder if it is a hybrid escaped from a collection which would widen the pool of potential species. Cheers Roy

    What type of cormorant is this please

    The two left hand birds are Cormorants, the front bird is a juvenile. In case you don't know the two right hand birds are Shags - adult at the front and juvenile at the rear. Welcome to Birdforum. Roy

    Pipit - Poland

    Meadow Pipits often show paler lines on the mantle but they are not as striking as those of a Red-throated Pipit and the markings on the flanks are variable as well - some are almost as narrow as those of a Tree Pipit but others are thicker. Roy

    Pipit - Poland

    Hi Michal, I would say not to be honest. It doesn't look striking enough on the mantle and the greater coverts should have a wider wing-bar. This looks like a Meadow Pipit to me but the photos make an in-depth assessment difficult. Roy

    Some birds-2 (in Turkey)

    Tree Pipit and Lesser Whitethroat.

    Thrush - like ; Wales UK.

    Very fast wing beats doesn't work for a Fieldfare either. Size can be very difficult to accurately assess without something of known size to compare it to. Skylark for me too.

    Two from Tunisia in Dec 85

    Agreed, they are both photos of a Hoopoe Lark.

    Greater/Lesser Scaup Waterloo, Ontario?

    Lesser Scaup for me too. The peak/angle at the rear of the head can vary from looking crest-like to an almost right-angled corner according to posture, moult and/or indeed if the head is wet. The American nearctica sub-species of Greater Scaup has a different head shape from nominate marila...

    Wader- Hampshire UK March 6th

    Yes it is a Green Sandpiper and they do like cress beds. Cheers Roy
