    Tanager?? Iguazu Argentina Nov 2019

    I hope I haven't posted these before! Two poor images of the bird, quite high in the canopy. I have looked through my checklist for this visit on eBirds but I can't come up with a match. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hummingbird, Iguazu Dec 2019

    Hi all, I have this down as a black-throated mango, but the blue streak from the back of the neck down the back has me having doubts. Taken at the Jardin de los Picaflored, Iguazu. Clearly not the best image! Thanks in advance

    Hummingbird, Iguazu Dec 2019

    Help! These hummingbirds are driving me nuts. The two books I have are next to useless. Ebirds is of some use but still I can't definitely ID this and some of the others. Is it a gilded am I being confused by the dark light? Thanks all.

    Thrush, Iguazu Argentina, Dec 2019

    Trying to nail down this thrush. Clearly a juvenile bird judging by the remaining chick feather. Taken at The Jardin de los Picaflores in Iguazu. Is it an Eastern Slaty Thrush? Thanks in advance.

    Birding near BA international airport.

    Hi there I have found that I have about 5 hours between flight at Eze and wonder if there is anyplace at the airport or near at hand to do some birding. I notice on eBirds there are two hotspots, one at the airport and the other at Reserva Natural Laguna De Rocha. Are these easily accessible...

    Iguazu birdwatching

    Hi there, before long I will have posted the full itinerary for my trip to Argentina on here! I have one day spare in Iguazu and intend to do some bird watching. We have a full day of sightseeing of the falls themselves, so can dedicate at least 1/2 day to birding. I have contacted at least...

    Bariloche in November

    Greetings We are on a very organised tour of Argentina, it is a holiday, not a birding tour, but we are trying to pack in as much birding as we can. BA is under control, El Calafate reserve is not far from our hotel and Iguazu is yet to be confirmed. But we have one day free in Bariloche. I...

    Sunbird/spiderhunter Thailand, Feb 2019

    First apologies for these atrocious images, if they are unidentifiable I can understand. They were taken in KhaoLak near the beach. The first image may well be affected by sunlight. They were in the same sequence and may show the same bird or perhaps male and female. I have identified olive...

    Pond heron Bangkok February

    I don't have enough knowledge to attempt a guess at these herons. Javan or Chinese? Taken in Limpini Park, Bangkok, recently. I have looked at eBirds and one recent sighting says Javan. Robson's book is not a lot of use. Thanks for any help Roger

    Swallow Khao Lak Thailand

    I have possibly taken the worst set of images of hirundines and swifts. The white rump area on this bird and the lack of a defined red area on the head have me puzzled. Is it a poor image of a striated swallow? Thanks in advance.

    Which vireo - Cape May State Park.

    Taken in the State Park at Cape May on the 15th of May. I had it as a red-eyed vireo, but someone said that he thought it was a Philadelphia vireo. I don't have enough experience or knowledge to make a judgment. I have checked on eBirds and neither was sited. Thanks in advance Roger

    Another sparrow - Cape May -recent

    Here we are again! as much as I try I can't fix this sparrow. The yellow lores give me the impression that this might be a white-throated sparrow, is it a juvenile it doesn't seem as bright as others I have seen? Taken in the wood area at the back of CMBO. Thanks all.

    Bad enough with all those sparrows, but this warbler does not seem to conform to what's in Sibleys! Any thoughts are very welcome. Thanks in advance Roger
