    Mystery Eagle, Cambodia

    These rather bad photos were taken in Northern Cambodia last week. Possibilities are Greater and Indian Spotted Eagle as well as Imperial, but that is as far as I get. Any ideas? Thank you in advance, Hanno

    Sharp-tailed Sandpiper

    Last week I asked about a bird and it turned out to be Long-toed Stint. Today I took a photo of a bird that looked quite similar but was larger and appears very short-necked. Sharp-tailed Sandpiper???? Cheers, Hanno

    Long-toed Stint, Cambodia

    Dear fellow BF'ers, I must admit that I struggle with waders as I only get to see them during migration. This (lousy) photo is of a wader I saw in Ang Trapang Thnor, Cambodia, 2 days ago. I think it is a Long-toed Stint but would like confirmation. Thank you in advance from a rain-drenched...

    Couple of Raptors, Ang Trapang Thmor, Cambodia

    Sorry for the poor quality, the Eagle(?) was very distant and the Buzzard(?) was shot from the hip. I am thinking Grey-faced Buzzard and Greater Spotted Eagle, but I am probably Miles off.

    Two from Tanzania

    Any help on those two would be appreciated. Both taken near Morogoro, Tanzania. I have an idea what the raptor is, but the little brown job has me stumped. Thanks in advance, Hanno

    Tanzania August September 2011

    26th to 30th of August After a very long trip from Siem Reap via Phnom Penh, Bangkok, and Dubai we arrived in Dar es Salaam last Friday, almost at the end of Ramadan. Immigration was reasonably fast and getting the visa was no big deal. We checked into the Moevenpick Palm Garden, a reasonable...

    Taman Negara, Malaysia: guide and/or agency needed

    Good morning all, I feel the urgent need for a few days off coming on and was thinking of Taman Negara as it is not far from home. I do not want to think (much) or organize anything; therefore could anyone recommend a good outfit that could cobble together a few days for me? High on the list...

    Carry-on luggage on domestic flights in Oz

    G'day, I will be leaving for a 5-week trip to Australia in 343 hours, 41 minutes and 22 seconds (no, I am not counting) and I have one concern: According to LP and the information sent by the tour company, Australian Airlines are real @#&! when it comes to carry-on luggage. Is this true? And...

    Best laptop on a trip

    Hiya all, I will be going on a trip soon during which I expect to take lots of photos. I would love to have a portable laptop (I have a 17" gaming laptop which is great but weighs a ton) to do at least some basic sorting and editing during the trip to avoid having to wallow through heaps of...

    Where to buy Swaros in Sydney?

    Dear fellow birders, I will be going on a birding trip to Australia later this year (yippeeee!!!). As this will be the most expensive trip I have ever undertaken, I thought I might as well throw in a pair of 8.5x42 Swarovision. As I cannot possibly get them here in Cambodia, my idea was to buy...

    Bird Identification Q&A, laziness, or trying to show off?

    How am I going to put this without ruffling any feathers....... Obviously, this branch is for questions regarding bird ID's. However, I cannot help but notice that there are some posters that will put up every single bird they have photographed up for an ID (you know who you are). How about...

    Lark, Cambodia

    This Lark was seen in Ang Trapang Thmor, near Siem Reap yesterday. When flushed, it only flew a short distance before settling. I never did manage to see the breast and as such have no idea to the extent of streaking. No crest and I think it looked to small for Oriental Skylark (which is...

    No more "How many species of xxxxx have you seen" please

    First thing every morning I fall into a deep depression. It all started when I read the thread entitled "How many Pigeons have you seen". I thought I was doing fine until I came across a post by somebody whose Pigeon List alone is almost as big as my life list. This continued in other "How many...

    Adobe Bridge and Canon 7D: not working

    Yesterday I took my spanking new Canon D for a test drive. When I came back, I obviously wanted to see what I had done but the pictures do not show in Adobe Bridge (I am using Photoshop CS3). I updated Bridge but still no joy. Do I need to buy CS4? Don't really want to spend the money. Or am I...

    Vietnam: Da Lat and Yok Don

    A few of us Vietnam-based birders visited Da Lat and Yok Don in April. Whilst Da Lat is well-known among Vietnam-bound birders, not too many make it to Yok Don, in the far West of the country. Whilst Da Lat is best known for its endemics, Yok Don has a habitat fairly unique in Vietnam and is...
