    Hummingbird photography

    I would say most hummers have a perch nearby the feeders, no one wants a hummer image with a plastic feeder in the background, when at the feeder suss out the perches and work those perches to your favour as hummers tend to have their favourites.

    Duck Sp North America

    I have never seen anything like this before, Photoshop would be the most obvious answer as even with colour mutations taken into account it is just so different. Have to say I did not have a clue when I first saw the image on facebook.

    My other concern with bonaparte's is that you cannot make out a white eye ring..

    A friend took this at Arundel

    Hi I have been asked to ID this bird. It is a captive bird and when i first looked at it I though red breasted merganser. Someone has thrown hooded merganser which i must admit did not consider. Could just do with a few second opinions. Regards Dave

    ID help on Flycatcher in the Mara, Kenya, Sept,2019

    Not sure on birds in Kenya Thought at first drongo but the eye looks wrong. So had a quick look at Kenyan birds and have another couple of possibilities....Another guess.... Northern black flycatcher, there is even a starling sp that comes quite close.
