    Phyllosc, Laos

    Photographed by a friend of mine in January. I have my opinion but my knowledge of Phylloscopus from south-east Asia is a bit too theorical to be reliable, beside I see conflicting evidences so I want to double-check. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hippolais - France, near Paris

    Photos taken by a friend of mine. Clearly this is between Icterine and Melodious. Melodious is very common around Paris while Icterine is a major local rarity (but already one record of a singing male this spring). The bird was suspected to be an Icterine in the field and seemingly reacted to...

    Sound Id - France

    Recorded recently (not by me) near Paris in mixed deciduous Woodland. According to the recordist, the bird was behaving rather like a Phylloscopus. Trouble: he is not sure the bird he saw was the same as the one in the recording. Any idea?

    Pallid/Montagu's problem - France

    Taken recently (not by me) in Central France. I have my own strong opinion on this non-classic bird (regardless of the species involved). N.B: there is a remote possibility that the 2 photos of the bird on the ground might in fact depicted a different bird. Yet it is extremely unlikely.

    What do you think of this young Gull from a French forum? Pictures taken near Saint-Malo, Brittany, during summer. Approximatively near the 20th of july 2010, although exact date a little uncertain it would seem. I have my opinion but any further insight welcome. Pictures...

    Today, for the first time in years, I decided to take up the challenge of Bavarian birds' bird quizz. I came across a mystery picture where the expected answer appears to be "Bonelli's eagle". See attached screen capture. What do you guys reckon?

    Tern, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

    Hi all, A Tern seen this year in Tanzania. The photos aren't great, the difference of contrast is due to the constantly changing lighting conditions. Pictures taken in late June. I must admit I have been thinking repressa because of the grey rump but some Common may show a greyish rump, and...

    Acro, Central African Republic

    Hi all, I photographed this Acrocephalus warbler last february in CAR. The photographic conditions were difficult: after sunset within the reedbed (I was in a blind, waiting for a pair of White-spotted flufftail), hence the mediocre quality of the photos. I don't have much to add to what is...

    Med Gull, Black sea (Bulgaria)

    An interesting bird from the Black sea. I brought it from a French forum.

Picture take recently...
