Hi all, a few from a trip down to Devon this weekend.

Is it possible to ID this bunting (?) from the grounds of Gyeongbok palace in Seoul? Unfortunately this is the only photo I got. Rustic Bunting perhaps? March 2018

Hi all, some more photos from years ago :) This time, some photos from near Los Angeles' Griffiths Observatory in July 2018. They were with a flock of juncos and at least one scaly-breasted munia. ...

New Jersey Passerine

Found this bird in a series of photos I was taking of a rather flighty Field Sparrow... no clue what this is! Some kind of blackbird? Sandy Hook, NJ - July 2018

Thanks! Perhaps it is an offspring from the Barnacle Goose that used to hang out with the Canada flock at Farlington Marshes.

Hi all! As per usual, I'm hoping (but not expecting) one of these terns to be an Arctic rather than a Common... one of these days I'll get one! 9 photos and 1 video. Also here's a bonus godwit...

Colorado Oriole

From Denver City Park in May 2019. This looks to me a lot like an Orchard Oriole, but I believe the only expected oriole in the area is Bullock's?
