    Trogon sp. (Manu Biolodge, Cusco, Peru)

    Hello everyone! I saw this bird on October 6th at Manu Biolodge (Cusco, Peru). What species of Trogon do you think it is? I would also like to use this thread to ask you how to identify the different species of red-bellied trogons that can be found here when their position doesn't let me see...

    Chalcostigma ruficeps (Wayqecha Biological Station, Cusco, Peru)

    Hello again! I saw this bird on September 24th at Wayqecha Biological Station (Cusco, Peru). Considering the altitude of this site, my main option is the rufous-capped thornbill (Chalcostigma ruficeps). However, the apparent absence of a bright green gorget makes me think of other similar...

    Hello everyone! I saw these birds on October 14th at Manu Biolodge (Cusco, Peru). Each number indicates a different individual. According to the Merlin app, the species to expect in the area are the Hauxwell's thrush (Turdus hauxwelli) and the black-billed thrush (Turdus ignobilis). Which of...

    Falco sp. (Madrid, Spain)

    Thank you all for your answers. Since there hasn't been a general consensus on the identification and Falco eleonorae would be a lifer for me, I will leave it as Falco sp. I'll have to wait for a future sighting before crossing it off the list!

    Falco sp. (Madrid, Spain)

    Other birders have also mentioned the nightjar option, but we believe this is due to the fact that the tail is in an odd (half-open) position in the photo. With our field observations we are almost sure that they were falcons. Some other people agree with us and are mainly divided between the...

    Hello everyone! Yesterday I saw two Falco sp. flying together over a pine forest in the northeastern mountains of Madrid (Spain). I saw them briefly late in the evening, when it was already getting dark. I include here (original size and cropped) the only two pictures I managed to take before...

    Photographic equipment for rainforest trip

    Regarding the idea of using a raincover or protective plastic... what are your suggestions or opinions? As I said before, I have never used these, but they don't seem comfortable for long hikes. Therefore... are they worth it?

    Photographic equipment for rainforest trip

    Thanks for the explanations Jim. Regarding the equipment, I have taken a look to the OM-1 camera and the Olympus 100-400 mm lens. It may be a little over budget, but I might try to get it if I can't find another option. However, I am not sure about the protection of this equipment against...

    Photographic equipment for rainforest trip

    First of all, thank you both for your answers. Regarding the budget, I can afford something above 2000 euros and even hover around 3000 if I sell my current equipment (something I would do if the new gear met most of the requirements and allowed me to be satisfied with it). Initially, I...

    Photographic equipment for rainforest trip

    Hello everyone! As I have already mentioned in other posts, I will be visiting Peru in the coming months. My trip will last about six months and, although I will try to visit different areas within the country, I will spend most of the time in the rainforest (specifically, in ManĂº National...

    Alaudidae sp. (Audio ID) (Central Spain)

    Hello everyone! I recorded this bird yesterday in a crop area in Guadalajara (Spain). I have already obtained an ID with Merlin app, but I would like a second opinion because the app took a while to recognize it and it might be wrong. The bird I want to identify belongs to the family Alaudidae...

    Oenanthe hispanica (?) (Central Spain)

    Hello again! I saw this bird yesterday in Guadalajara (Spain). There were several northern wheatears (Oenanthe oenanthe) in the area, but I believe this specimen was a western black-eared wheatear (Oenanthe hispanica). What do you think?

    Accipitridae sp. (Central Spain)

    Hello everyone! A friend and I saw this bird in Guadalajara (Spain) on March 29. We are not sure if it is a black kite (Milvus migrans) or a booted eagle (Hieraaetus pennatus). What do you think?
