Today atop a visable hill I noticed a number of birds perched on a guy wire which supports a telecoms tower.
In the attached photo I was able to ID two Eurasian Collared Doves and a Chestnut Tailed Starling. As well out of the frame even further up the wire were 4 Red-vented Bulbuls...
Hello. I was at a new location today, pasture land right up against a brackish estuary along the coast. This bird was one of the first things I saw and took this one shot before it flew off. Is an ID possible from this?
Great thanks again. I had posted the second picture just because I had found it in my file folder later, after I had already posted , and because I have no experience with this species or this group of birds so the colors of the parts was seeming very mysterious to me. All of your comments...
I took this photo 3 minutes before the other, but I am pretty sure it was the only bird moving in the tree, so I believe it is the same bird in both photos. What is mor clear in this photo is the orange lower mandible, and the leg also has a pinkish hue. Would this information say anything about...
Hello, I was looking out the window of a vehicle waiting in a line for a couple of minutes , and I noticed three birds at least similar to herons (I think) within my view.
First I saw a couple of Indian Pond Herons (I feel most secure about this ID)
Then a large white egret. (Great Egret, I...
I was along the shore at a spot where there is a sand spit of land which becomes more or less connected to rest of the shore depending on tide. This is my first best morning to go birding since COVID-19 first started to cause movement restrictions months ago.
I certainly saw two plovers...
however long this now is into social distancing, I am glad to have you all to continue to ask questions of the birds that do still continue to not be too distant from me.
I saw this bird today perched on the roof of a 8 story building in Cox's Bazar...
I had a very birdy 5 minutes looking out the window of room this afternoon and was able to identify 9 species of birds on the hill across the road.
But looking at the snapshots I took, I suspect there may have been a tenth species there. One of the birds I saw was a Black drongo. (See photo...
I am finding myself in a new location and so all the birds around here are new for me.
I wonder if my guess of these being a male and female Oriental Magpie Robins might be right. I do not know if that species has white outer tail feather or not so I am not at all sure of my guess.
Black bellied Plover, or Sanderling, or Temminck's Stint, or ...?
I was on the beach again today taking photos. I am thinking these are Sanderlings. But I am not...
I think the gulls were Sooty Gulls
This is the best shoot of a gull. There were at least two of them on the beach, finding shellfish right where the water was breaking on the sand
