    Which Starling? Kruger Park, SA

    As I said, structurally, it looks good, did you have any other Starlings for comparison, was it smaller?

    Which Starling? Kruger Park, SA

    I've looked at this closely Larry, I think structurally, it fits Black-bellied but they aren't common in Kruger, being mainly coastal, they are there though. It's brighter than I'd expect, including the eye but it does seem to fit with a lot of the images I've looked at.

    Or until you get a picture of one which isn't going to happen, if you spend all your time here is it?

    Birds of Argentina

    Some are very small e.g 8x10cm, I really like the Black Baza but that size is pretty useless unless you have a lot more of them?

    England lockdown policy

    Ed Davey, leader of the Lib-Dems, has just argued on the Andrew Marr show, that it is 'appropriate' for their campaigners to be leafleting, door to door and the way it complies with guidelines, is that it falls under 'volunteer organisations', because the leafleters are unpaid volunteers...

    I find it difficult to conceive, that the last remaining bird in a population of a difficult to observe species, can be discovered (Stress Bristlefront) yet a supposedly, viable population of a loud, obvious bird, almost as big as a Turkey, can elude extensive searches over several decades.

    Common / Dark-capped bulbul, Kenya

    Perplexing as to why Birds of Africa, 2nd ed, doesn't go with the split of either so per that publication, Common Bulbul is, in Kenya.

    Common / Dark-capped bulbul, Kenya

    Birds of East Africa tells you all you need to know. Three races of Common Bulbul, Dodson's is either a race of or a split from Common, depending on your taxonomic choice. Lack of a white 'ear mark' and white, feather fringes on the breast, eliminating Dodson's, brownish, rather than blackish...

    Would that even be possible without DNA, which of course, wasn't available then?

    What's the best field guide for Ecuador?

    I recall once being in a place in India, which had a few books. When I opened a couple of them, they were badly damaged by the humidity0 moldy and almost falling apart. How do people protect their books if they live in such conditions, aircon helps I suppose?

    Anyone else like Birds AND planes?

    A couple of decommisioned aircraft, standing on a traffic island near Chiang Kai Shek airport in Taipai, Taiwan, what are they and apologies for the rather incomplete second shot. There was also a very disappointing sign at check in when I got back to Bangkok, on the grounds of discrimination...

    Not really, IOC call it 'Sri Lanka Bay Owl' so I just hybridised the name.
