What am I?

I'm sure this is too easy for the pro's out there. I only took this today to confirm what I'd actually seen back home on the computer. These little superzooms are very handy.

Good luckB (:

Should have added it was taken in South Wales today.

Should this be titled "Where am I?"

Phil

ClarkWGriswold Wednesday 22nd May 2013 16:57

I'm new to this quiz thing Phil? Shall I put an easier photo in?

Rich

Might be that I'm just looking on my phone but I can't see a bird anywhere. It might be that I'm just blind stupid. I'd wait til others have had a look.

ok - If Phil is having issues it must be rediculous/ impossible. Same photo - different crop and pp. And yes, there is something phallic about the tree:eek!:

I still can't see a bird. Looks the sort of place you might get a Little Owl though.

People on this forum are too bloody good - spot on Steve.

Can anyone find it?

is it there (arrow)? still doesn't particularly look like a little owl but should be that spotty blob...

I can't see a bird either sorry. Perhaps if the omage were a tad bigger or a little lighter.:gh:

Spot on Lou:t:. I was really surprised that from that range with a little lightening I was able to get a recognisable image. The more I was staring at it trying to will more range out of my 8x's the more I was convincing myself out of it.

Too easy I expect? The bird sitting in the tree.

I'm still tempted to answer your title question Rich ( and bugger the mods ) ;)

Personally I think this one is hard. Not a common bird for South Wales (and not the Mallard or BHG either!:-O)

lou salomon Wednesday 28th October 2015 14:45

a scaup? and the bird in tree #13 a ring ouzel?

No and no Lou. But fairly close with the duck.

lou salomon Wednesday 28th October 2015 16:48

tuftie (should be common) and young magpie?

ClarkWGriswold Wednesday 28th October 2015 17:37

Still no and no. You're right. Tufties are very common. This one was a lifer for me.

Brosnabirder Wednesday 28th October 2015 21:09

Is it a Ruddy Duck? Something about the tail looks familiar

Brosnabirder Wednesday 28th October 2015 21:22

And maybe a Magpie in the tree
edit, have just seen Lou's answer for the bird in the tree. So maybe Hooded Crow if it's within range.

ApusApus Thursday 29th October 2015 04:50

I'd go with Brosnabirder, Ruddy Duck and Hooded Crow.
