    Piping Guan, Pantanal, Brazil

    Hi I'm rather confused with this Piping Guan. The dewlap is mainly red, however there is some blue on the throat. Is it a Red-throated Piping Guan (Pipile cujubi), a Blue-throated (Pipile cumanensis) which is what the guide told us, or is it a intermediate form between the two? The picture was...

    Unknown, Ilha Grande, Brasil

    I've seen this bird in october on Ilha Grande in Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil. The bird was on a big dead tree, inside the forest, together with a Picazuro Pigeon (the bigger bird on one of the pictures). It was an overcast, grey day, so the picture is not the best. Can anyone help? André

    Brazil: budget Patanal/Amazonia

    No clue about the place in Porto Jofre.... Also not really sure about your first question. The hotel at the Pixaim river is called Mato Grosso but as everything else it's at the Transpantaneira, so your starting point is Cuiaba anyway. I will pm you about the places around Chapada dos...

    Brazil: budget Patanal/Amazonia

    Working on a report, but that may take a while. We had a local guide all along. First we stayed in Pousada Vento Sul in Chapada dos Guimarães (will you go there?) and birded around the town (Vale do Jamaca, Vale do Bencao, Estrada Agua Fria and Estrada da Geladeira. The place was full of birds...

    Not sure if 20 years old gem is really useful.....;) I do remember seeing them at the ponds near the airport (actually mating on my rubber boots...) and close to the dog kennels, probably the very same place Tom mentioned. André

    How many markings per bird?

    That is correct, however most probably never happens. I have seen birds with a neck collar and three rings on their legs, I can't remember any bird with more than 4 markings that I'v seen. André

    Shrikes near Frankfurt

    It absolutely is. Great Grey Shrike is a victim of industrial agriculture and has disappeared over much of Europe as a breeding bird. André

    house sparrow somali sparrow

    I have to agree with Andy here, that's definitely a Somali Sparrow. The crown is all brown (no grey like in House Sparrow) but not as rufous as in breeding plumage. Also the upperparts are different (eg the grey-black stripes and the missing white wing bar, as mentioned by Andy). André

    Hi Mike Great picture. However, isn't this a Rppell's Starling (Lamprotornis purpuropterus)? Burchell's is not found in Tanzania and has dark eyes.

    Olive Warbler

    I saw a bird at the end of July in the Chiricahuas, Arizona. We were based in Portal. However, it wasn't the easiest bird to find, so best to plan some days up there. André

    There are several good spots in Lanzarote: Around Playa Blanca (southern tip of the island): sometimes good birds in the hotel grounds, Houbara Bustard and Cream-coloured Courser around the cement works (northeast of the town) or some seabirds from Punta Pechiguera (like Cory's Shearwater)...
