Last 2 from Gomera 19

I am thinking here a Berthelot Pipit and 2 Rock Doves. Is this correct. Thank you for any help. The forum has been excellent at helping me learn how to identify birds so much appreciated.

Thanks . I thought the wings on the first one were too broad for a kestrel, the body wider and the markings darker ?

Gulls - La Gomera Dec 19

Is one a tallow legged gull, but the flying ones and the dotted ones I do not know, maybe all the same but just at different stages of their development ?

Birds of Prey La Gomera Dec 19

First two were the same bird. Drifted around rather than hovered then swooped, elanora's falcon or common kestrel. Not sure of the other two.

La Gomera bird larger photo !

Just enlarged the photo so hopefully this may help. I though it was too small for a grey wagtail and it has a white bib, not black.

I just posted a red kite picture which turned out to be a buzzard which I thought it may have been . The reason I said kite is that this bird was in the sky at the same time. Is this a red kite and...

Sparrows seem to take so many shades and colours but is one a female or juvenile house sparrow. Then the other 2 birds were flying over Lindos Bay. The odd couple. One looked like a feral dove or...

Game Bird in Rhodes July 19

I did post one bird a few days ago but have some more pictures now. Can we say this is a Chukar ? I have based it on the smallish white area on the neck and the lack of a white stripe over the eye.
