    Terns in Mexico, today

    Interesting, thank you. I was not confortable at all for the younger bird to be a Common that I had identified as a Forster's. For the other one, the real reason of my post, I find it difficult. Cheers !

    Croatia - trying to ID this bird song

    Can it be a Common Nightingale ?

    Please confirm the ID of this raptor

    Indian Spotted was lumped wit LESSER Spotted Eagle in the past, but no one lump it with Greater Spotted. Indian and Lesser are totally allopatric.

    Flycatcher ID Requested - Sulphur-bellied or Streaked? Spotted in the forests around Lago Pojoj, Chiapas, Mexico

    I didn't check the sounds, but the plain belly and very white supercilium are good for Sulphur-bellied F.

    "grey" Snowy Egret, Campeche, Mexico

    Hi all, It is possible, from this single shot, to say if this Snowy Egret is just dirty or if the feathers above are really grey for some reasons ? I guess bare parts colours exclude hybridation but a second thought is welcome. Photo from today in a mixed egret colony in Ciudad del Carmen...

    ID`s Please Costa Rica

    Interesting, I visited San José many times but not since 2005, so I forgot which birds are common there.

    ID`s Please Costa Rica

    You are probably right, but e-Bird is full of photos of Mountain Thrush from San José ; did I miss something ? https://ebird.org/species/mourob1?siteLanguage=es_DO

    I see 3 Mountain Thrushes, pic 2 is Rufous-collared Sparrow, 4 is Blue-grey Tanager and last looks like Great-tailed Grackle.

    Sounds like a Raven for me.

    ID Help Please - Houston, TX. Many Thanks!

    Well, I guess it is between Orange-crowned and Tennesse Warblers ? White undertail coverts are better for Tennessee as far as I remember.

    Pied or Semicollared? (Tekirdağ-Turkey)

    Looks good for Semicollared IMHO.
  16. Valéry Schollaert

    Wood sandpiper or Greenshank or.....?

    Wood Sandpiper is slightly smaller than Redshank, and the bill is shorter. Greenshank is bigger than Redshank, with longer bill. They are very different actually, have a look here : Common Greenshank and Wood Sandpiper by Margaret Sloan Cheers !

    Terns in Mexico, today

    Thank you guys, I thought left bird had a Forter's look with long legs, thick bill, but I know Forster's only in breeding plumage. Good details to learn here !
