Hopefully you or someone else have gotten or can get sound recordings, a decent sound recording may prove this bird beyond reasonable doubt. At this time of year, such a 'grey and white' yellow...

I don't think it sounds right for Red-throated Pipit (cervinus), though it can be difficult to judge single calls from less clear recordings. It sounds too modulated to my ear, and therefore in the...

Hi there,
One of the problems with such an active ID section on this forum is that a response can be buried underneath a deluge of other posts. Accordingly, I would already have agreed with...

Nonsense, Deb, I don't really know that much about 'Atlantic Yellow-legged Gulls' myself, it's all relative, and your input is much appreciated same as anyone else's. Looking forward to someone with...

Hi Deb,
There is a stronger tendency for Yellow-legged Gulls of various Atlantic populations, by no means just those on island groups, to lack a white mirror on P9 as adults. Of course, some...

Hi there,
Are there any more images of the 'hooded' Yellow-legged Gull showing the pattern of the spread wing a bit better than the initial shot? Purely in terms of the head pattern, this does...

Might I ask if the original poster could post the actual image, as some features may not be represented accurately on a back of camera shot?

Hi Gander,
All the birds in all of your images are Tree Pipits, the reasons why have been covered well already by other posters. In addition, the legs are pale pink rather than the more orangey...

Hi Joao,
I agree with europaeus (European Nightjar) for this bird. I'd expect to see prominent pale tips to all the coverts on ruficollis (Red-necked Nightjar). Due to the presence of some white...

Hi all,
I am afraid that I must state straight up, as a starting point, that I really don't think that this is an Arctic Warbler, much as it would be great if it were. For a start, dealing solely...

Hi Jan,
This is certainly a typical song strophe from a Eurasian Wren, for me. I don't have extensive experience with singing Greenish Warblers, but I have heard them in Kazakhstan and the...

Hi Ehsan,
With the proviso that this may not be full crystallised song, and, as such, the tempo and extent of mimicry may be affected, it does remind me in places of Blyth's Reed Warbler in its...

Hi Orvany,

Are there any more images of this bird? While it may well be a Herring Gull, as Jean says, I am finding it difficult to conclusively exclude a darker lusitanius Yellow-legged Gull. I...

Hi Curlew2,
Sorry to have a less exciting verdict for you, but, in my opinion, this bird is a Common Buzzard. The mixture of plumage features doesn't fit for Rough-legged: there's a pale 'U' on...

Gape line extending behind the eye, seemingly long legs, length of bill etc suggest Great White Egret to me rather than Intermediate.
