    Raptor, Mexico-City, February 2023

    I agree, a common species in the "Distrito Federal". I did a video (in French) about the urban birds there, and at the end you can see Harris's Hawk. I found a pair with a nest and juvenile recently fledged.

    Is this common redpoll?

    It is a Redpoll indeed.

    Pipit and swift in moorland of Mt Kilimanjaro Tanzania

    The other bird is a Scarce Swift Schoutedenapus myoptilus, the only long-tailed species recorded in high mountains.

    White-eye in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.

    Yes Steve, but I considered also "2000m, in lush forest edge environment" while Pale White-eye is not known above 1800m and live in " semi-arid to dry subhumid bushy or wooded habitats, Acacia and thornbush, gardens and forest edge" (according to BOW).

    White-eye in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.

    It seems there's no other option than, indeed, Southern Yellow White-eye Zosterops anderssoni

    Buzzards from Armenia, need ID

    It looks longer winged because it is an immature but still a Steppe/Common Buzzard.

    It is possible, but I didn't find such an information.

    Lark in Kerala (India)

    Lark in Kerala (India)

    Hi all, I'm sorting a bunch of photos of Malabar Larks such shown on the first photo ; all taken in the last 6 days. On one of these photos, the second one joined here, the bird seems to have a much thinner bill appearing slightly hooked. Although I didn't hear any skylark call there, I wonder...

    Raptor -- Cottbus, Germany

    The tail shape and the longish wings for an Accipiter are rather suggesting a Goshawk.

    Which Phylloscopus? Morocco, Agadir, yesterday

    Exactly, even the plumage makes Iberian more difficult to distinguish from WW than from CC. We can thus safely identify our bird as a Common Chiffchaff.

    Hen Harrier f or Buzzard? Nara Japan

    definitely a buzzard and not a harrier.

    Which Phylloscopus? Morocco, Agadir, yesterday

    Iberian has much longer wings than Chiffchaff, actually, it is more difficult to tell apart from Willow Warbler.

    I don't know this detail. On these photos, we can see the colour inside the bill. Same bird. Can it be enough ?

    Ghana - Cuckooshrike and Bishop

    I agree with the boubou. The ploceid is certainly a female Black-winged Bishop.
