Hello,

Thank you both, seems like the quest for a safe Wood Mouse/YNM ID continues. Well, at least I now have some decent shots of a number of species, and not all of them are as tough to identify as the...

Nor I; usually one just sees them darting for cover, or flattened on the road.

Wait, are you asking about the bird in front (which is a typical Ruff, at least in terms of proportions and plumage), or the one behind it?

Lark ID questions, Spain 2019

I've come across quite a few larks this year, but some of them are less easy to ID than others. I'm fairly confident that I've seen Thekla's several times, given the songs, calls, underwing patterns...

Yeah, the dark bill got me thinking, too. I've never paid that much attention to that detail in the field, so I'm not sure if that's normal or not. Maybe there's some staining involved?
