    Myiarchus Flycatchers - Costa Rica

    I believe all these were taken in Parque Nacional Santa Rosa, northwestern Costa Rica, late february 2016. Are they all Nutting's Flycatchers ?

    Two raptors - Irazu, Costa Rica

    Prompted by recent threads about Costa Rica, I got back into old pics from february '16. These two raptors were seen at Irazu Volcano. I suspect Tiny Hawk for the second one (photos 2 & 3), whereas for the first one I have very little idea. It was flying quite high overhead.

    Marsh warbler ? Neusiedlersee, Austria

    Hello, browsing through old photos I found this one which looks like a good candidate for Acrocephalus palustris to me, although I initially IDed it as reed warbler. What are your thoughts about it ? Neusiedlersee, Austria, august 2018.

    Aquila, Etosha Namibia

    Hello all, can this bird be safely identified ? Judging by its dark eye this is probably Wahlberg's Eagle but can Tawny be excluded ? Thank you, Quentin

    Coucal, Kwando river, Namibia

    Some good old Senegal Coucal or possibly a Coppery-tailed ? It is probably impossible to identify this bird with such a picture, in any case I don't have enough experience with these. Thanks, Quentin Kwando river, Zambezi, Namibia - 29/04/2019

    Purple banded Sunbird ? Kwando river, Namibia

    Hello, another sunbird from my recent trip to Namibia that I am rather unable to identify. The overall dark and green look and the shortish bill could match purple-banded. Any opinions ? Kwando River (Namushasha Lodge), Zambezi, Namibia - 29/04/2019

    Bat Hawk ? Etosha, Namibia

    Hello, here's one of these very distant shots taken during a safari when there is little time nor possibility to get a closer look at some bird. The overall shape, size, the beak shape and the clear throat point towards Bat Hawk to me. Thank you for your opinions on this one ! Quentin

    Sunbird, Etosha NP Namibia

    Here's a quite enigmatic bird to me. A juvenile male quite certainly, it seems to have a full glossy green head. What about this white vent ? Alas, this is the only shot which I have of this bird. Okaukuejo camp in Etosha NP, 22/4/2019.

    Aquilas - Jordan, february

    Hello, here are two aquilas seen over Dana Nature Reserve, Jordan, 26/2/2018. The first one looks like a good candidate for adult GSE to me. As for the second one, it is probably an adult Steppe Eagle (smallish head, mere dark trailing edge, extensive gape). Numerous migrating steppe eagles...

    Phylloscopus - Doi Inthanon, Thailand

    Here are three photos, if not of the same individual two or three from the same flock. Taken near the peak of Doi Inthanon, near Chiang Mai. I believe this is White-tailed Leaf-Warbler. Any opinions ?

    Brown-streaked Flycatcher ? Bangkok Thailand

    Muscicapa dauurica is my best guess for this flycatcher but I would appreciate any knowledgeable opinion about this bird. Bang Krajao, south of Bangkok, February 6, 2017.

    Black-naped Monarch ? Bangkok Thailand

    I took these bad shots in Bang Krajao park south of Bangkok on feb. 6. Is this a female black-naped Monarch ? Obviously none of the blue flycatchers, but the jizz also looks quite different from the drawing in Craig Robson's "Birds of Thailand".

    Hello all, another from Costa Rica last month... I feel quite helpless with those new world raptors. Is this a broad-winged hawk ? Thanks !

    Warbler, Tortuguero Costa Rica

    Another old world warbler from my recent trip to CR which I am having trouble ID-ing... I lean towards Northern Parula but the lack of yellow wash on the breast puzzles me. Tortuguero, 23/02/2016. Anybody on this one ? ;)

    Accipiter sp. Irazu, Costa Rica

    Another small accipiter from my first day in this wonderful country. I don't remember it being so small but I don't see anything that fits the fine gray barring else than Tiny Hawk... tail barring looks wrong for this species, though. Thanks for the help ! Quentin

    Bicolored hawk ? Alajuela, Costa Rica

    Hello all, this shot is terrible and it is the only one that I have of this small raptor, seen in Alajuela 21/02/16. Is this a Bicolored Hawk ? Having notably neglected accipitrids in my preparations for this trip, I may have a few more to post for ID in the near future |:|| Quentin
