    6 day Birding trip Holland for 150-180€

    Hey guys! Been a while since I've posted on birdforum. In the spring of 2017 and 2018 I did 6 days of intensive birding in 6 provinces in Holland to see how many species I could find per province. I did 6 days in the end of May. So, in 2019 I will be doing this again. But this time, I'd like...

    Willow warbler?(Southern Spain)

    Tbh, I never look at the taxonomy of birds. I stick with the human on that subject;) Thank you for teaching me to take a look at primaries next time.

    Willow warbler?(Southern Spain)

    Yes, a Willow Warbler. They are "usually" more yellow than Chiffchaff, and, the legs are paler/reddish. Chiffchaffs have nearly always black or atleast dark legs.

    #1 & #3 Barn Swallows Rest are House Martins. And yes, they are very quick indeed.

    Looking at the behaviour of the bottom Skua in that picture, it must be a Great Skua.

    The BOP's are indeed Kestrels. I'll leave the Gulls for the more educated among us.

    Little brown bird - Eastern Ontario, Canada

    Looks like a juvenile Yellow Rumped Warbler. Looking at the bill it's an insect-eater.

    ID help. Small swift like bird in Mozambique.

    I can't help you with your picture, but, I have never seen any Swift perched on a wire like this. Could it be a Swallow?

    White-throated Flycatcher? Western Mexico

    Actually Sue, every contribution to Ebird is useful! I base 80% of my birding trips abroad on Ebird lists. It also gives a good idea of a species declining or increasing in a particular area. I think your Flycatcher is a Willow. A bit worn though. And, with every Empid. definetely not sure.

    Sparrows, again, + an Empid #1 might be a Longspur. #4 a Clay-Colored? Thanks for the input!

    Wader ID - Bavaria, Germany

    Yes, a Ruff. Just a large (billed) one I guess.

    South Alberta, August '18

    Thank you for your response. I think 3 and 4 are indeed Vesper, it was photographed in a rather dry habitat a long way away from a river/lake. Lark Buntings were seen not too far from that area so might very well be. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts!

    Thank you! So thats why #1 seemed off. #5 might be a Chestnut Collard Longspur maybe? Were quite some of those around there.
