    Any bird guide for Mexico?

    Aix sp. (Madrid, Spain)

    Hello everyone! I found this bird today in Guadalix de la Sierra, Madrid, Spain. I am not sure if it could be Aix galericulata or A. sponsa and these are the reasons for it: -The white marks on its face remind me of A. galericulata. -The dark beak reminds me of A. sponsa. -Both...

    Larus sp. (Spain)

    Hello everyone. Last week, I saw a group of 6-7 of these seagulls flying over my house in Guadalajara (Spain). What species is it? Sadly, I have no more pictures. My guess is Larus fuscus, but I don't know if L. michahellis (or any other similar species which I don't know about) can be ruled out...

    Three birds of prey (Spain)

    Hello everyone. I found these three different birds today in Guadalajara (Spain). The area included mostly crop fields, with some bushes, although there were some pine trees too. Number 1 looks like Aquila adalberti to me. Some people have told me number 2 could be Accipiter gentilis. Some...

    Shorebird (Guadalajara, Spain)

    Greenshank looks good to me. I've seen black-winged stilts (in other areas) several times and this bird didn't remind me of one of them. In addition, there are no black-winged stilts reported in the area during winter, just in summer (just a few of them and, although close to my location, not...

    Hello again! I've been reading more about different binoculars and I think my final choice is between: Nikon PROSTAFF 7S 10x42 Vanguard Endeavor ED 10x42 What do you think? Which one is better? Or do you think my first options were better?

    Which one is best?

    Btw, I am not an eye glasses user, so would that really be a problem for me?

    Which one is best?

    Thanks a lot Phil! Since you point out you are not a huge fan of Bushnell ones, do you know any other binoculars (different from the ones I included here) that you think are better and fit in my budget (around 300 €)?
