    Falcon sp. Mallorca

    I saw this falcon at Cap de Ses Salines, Mallorca, yesterday and there are different opinions. Some say Hobby whilst others believe it is a Red-footed falcon. I accept the photo is poor and I have lightened it a bit. Any help would be appreciated.

    Lark Mallorca

    Is there any way this lark could be identified? I saw it fly by and I suspected it was a Woodlark but they are very rare here. I hope I’ve posted the right photo this time! Thanks, Mike

    Tern species, Mallorca

    A Caspian tern has been knocking around the Albufera reserve and I wonder if it’s possible to tell from this poor photograph on full zoom. I didn’t have a telescope so this is the best I could do. The other possibility is Common tern which breed nearby but I can’t tell. Thanks, Mike

    Mallorca. Unknown

    I don’t think there is much hope of an identification of this bird I saw this morning in Mallorca. I could barely see it and all I could manage was a couple of shots on full zoom. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike

    Wader, Mallorca

    This wader was seen this morning in Mallorca and identified as a Wood Sandpiper. I think the bill is too long and fine for that species and that it may be a Marsh Sandpiper. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike

    Bunting, Mallorca

    I managed to take a couple of shots of this bird in Mallorca today on wires above a busy roundabout before it flew. It appeared very large at the time but now looks like a Corn Bunting. Any thoughts?

    Thrasher sp. Mississippi, USA

    I only got a brief view and poor photo of this thrasher in Mississippi a few days ago. It appeared uniform brown but I didn't get a good view of the breast. I was thinking Curve-billed thrasher. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike

    Wader Mallorca today

    Not a good photo but this wader has got me confused, which doesn't take much. It reminded me of a Broad-billed sandpiper but it probably isn't. Thanks, Mike
