I am not on this forum very often, so late to the party, but the first image (20/38) is a female Brown Headed Cowbird. I am going to go out on a limb and say photo 2 is a juvenile. I can see some...

Thanks for the details for Abu Dhabi. I have a long port day there in April and would have time for some birding around visit to the mosque. I am not keen on a kayak visit, but is there any land...

Thanks Jurek. I'll take a look at Observado and explore cloudbirder further. I only have the one day for each port, but I am considering it an exploratory trip for a longer future trip.

1992 edition of Birds of Panama - still relevant?

The Ridgely Birds of Panama looks appealing as it also covers Nicaragua which is on my short list.

Great finale! I didn't get up to Murchison, but it sounds like a great segment for you (despite the traffic dramas). I think that it should be noted, the driver should not also be a photographer...

Bill says warbler, and it is a young one, so harder to tell. I think I see some yellow in picture two. Other colours, faint markings leads me to guess yellow-rumped warbler.
