    Good research ;)

    I don't have that much experience of them but I think they are usually a fairly 'solitary' species? Not often in flocks?

    Thanks, have only been to WA once so I need to 'brush-up' soon 😉

    New Zealand - North Island

    Not a very 'scientific' reply but I can't think of any other species (..apart from GSP) that would be there in those numbers, most other possible plovers would be in much smaller groups...

    Siberian Sandplover, formerly Lesser Sandplover?

    Perth, Australia, bird song ID request

    Sounds like a Rosella to me, I often use that call to bring in Pale-headed Rosella here in Brisbane.

    Can you do casual birding in China? RFI

    Just a quick note of caution, when I was there last (2016) eBird was difficult to use properly as there was no access to Google services especially G.Maps and Gmail, I missed a return flight from Chengdu to Singapore as it was cancelled and didn't receive the warning-alert message on my Gmail...

    birdNET Analyzer model update

    Do you have any idea what files/paths to replace to update to BirdNET-Pi? It was easy to replace the model files in Raven Pro but I've got far less confidence with the coding with BirdNET-Pi.

    birdNET Analyzer model update

    Just managed to get the models update working with Raven Pro, so thanks for getting the news out there, all I need to know now is how to use BirdNET-Analyzer and BirdNET-Pi ;)

    RFI - Brisbane (& beyond)

    Hi Richard, if you decide that you need a guide whilst in the Brisbane area, I can help you, have been a birding resident here for 35+ years. On Saturday I found 109 species for a couple of birders from Victoria for the day around my residential area of Dayboro (....not far from Dakabin) Have a...

    NZ and OZ, Birding Down Under extensions

    Hi John, How long will you be stopping in Brisbane for? I'm just in the initial-stages of starting a small bird-tour company (I've already been doing it for 35+ years 'not-for-profit') I would be happy to pick you up from port and take you out for the day (...for a 'reasonable' fee, we could...

    Crimson-breasted Woodpecker? central Bhutan

    Thanks Andy, we don't get too many 'Woodies' in Oz, but several of us on the tour questioned it's taxa. I'm not sure if we brought up it's 'age'... Tom

    Crimson-breasted Woodpecker? central Bhutan

    Saw this woodpecker near Trongsa, Bhutan in mid-May 2019, it responded to a Crimson-breasted WP call, the other two (2 and 3) are of another CB WP taken less than 100 kms away in Yongkhola last year. This years one (1 and 4) has much heavier-streaking on the breast and less red on the head. Is...

    Eastern Tibet & Western Sichuan, May 2016

    Great report Tom, am still working on mine (from May this year....) Just wonder if you could check your web-links as some of the pages are not displaying correctly (ie don't seem to be able to view page 16...and a couple of others) Cheers, Tom

    Sichuan Birding

    Hi Giovanni, Could the single note one be Hume's Warbler, it was fairly easy to see/hear in Sichuan forests this May, but I don't have the technology to listen properly today ( on a train) Check that out with XenoCanto Tom

    Female flycatcher in Sichuan, China

    Well done Mark, am not sure why I 'missed' Rufous-gorgetted....they were fairly common in the area. Tom

    Sichuan Birding

    re: Female flycatcher from Longanggou Well-done Roland, I think you've 'nailed' it...female Rufous-gorgetted for sure! They were very common throughout the area, (as were Slaty-backed Ian), but I did get a female Slaty-backed very close to this bird (...again, apologies for poor-quality of the...

    Female flycatcher in Sichuan, China

    Took this flycatcher pic along the Longcanggou Mountain road, Sichuan, China in May 2016. We thought at the time that it might be a female Slaty-blue Ficedula tricolor (I believe our guide Summer Wong has seen them here before) but some of the plumage features look inconsistent to me. It appears...

    Sichuan Birding

    Female flycatcher from Longanggou Took this flycatcher pic along the Longcanggou 'parrotbill' road fairly close to the new 'under-construction' panda resort. (Apologies for the poor-quality!) It was about 30m up a deciduous-tree in very poor light. There was a Chestnut-headed Tesia along the...
