Juvenile Citril Finch or Redpoll, Carinthia/Austria, June 2020

No problem with separating the adults of these two species - but I find it bafflingly tricky to ID this juvenile. Both species were around. Thanks in advance!

Jean Francois:

Widowbird (?) from Gabon, 01/08/19

I know Widowbirds are often unsolvable but the males here look distinctive enough. But I can´t find a good match. I assume all birds are the same species, they were in one flock. My best guess is...

Wheatear from Bulgaria

Taken South of Sofia in a quarry, last weekend. Just a Northern Wheatear or possibly a moulting Black-Eared Wheatear (a bird I have no familiarity with at all)? Thanks in advance.

Bird from Khwai, Botswana

I´m probably missing something obvious but I cannot quite figure this one out. A juvenile Brown-Crowned Tchagra or something like that? Quite a heavy crop. Taken Feb 7th. Thanks in advance!
