    Little Owl

    Thanks very much fugl and Lisa. I like to leave the pencils in for scale, but will leave them out of future uploads. The in-progress drawings give a good sense of scale anyway.

    Kruger private bird guides

    Thanks very much Andy. That sounds reassuring :) I'll stick with the night drives already booked then. Thanks for the extra tips too!

    Kruger private bird guides

    Going to Kruger next month and have already booked some guided outings via Sanparks. While staying at Punda Maria I particularly want to see Pennant-winged Nightjar. It would have to be guided because of the camp curfew times so I've booked a couple of night drives but my concern is that if...

    Unknown Swift

    Thanks for your thoughts! I'd like to think it was an Asian Palm Swift (would be a lifer).

    Unknown Swift

    I know it's a bit ridiculous, but if anyone is able to see enough in this out of focus and distant swift to ID it, I'd be grateful :) I didn't notice it when watching the kite at the time in Sri Lanka.

    Some Sri Lankan birds. ID help appreciated!

    Thanks so much for your time and thoughts on these. It's really appreciated, and apologies for the 'collage' style attachment! The tern definitely does have a yellow bill - confirmed by other photos of the same bird.

    Some Sri Lankan birds. ID help appreciated!

    Hi, just returned from a trip to Sri Lanka. I have a small number of birds that I'd really appreciate some identification help with. Not sure if this was a good idea, but I've stuck them all into one image...

    Bird ID help please - Costa Rica

    Thank you both very much. The House Wren is a tick :t:

    Bird ID help please - Costa Rica

    Hi Can anyone ID these birds please? All the photos are poor I'm afraid. White-shouldered Tanager perhaps for one of them, or have I got the wrong family altogether? All seen on the Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica in January. Many thanks :)

    Fasciated or Bare-throated Tiger Heron?

    Thanks everyone, much appreciated. Bare-throated it is :)

    Fasciated or Bare-throated Tiger Heron?

    Thanks for your thoughts. It's reassuring to see that it I'm not the only one who's unsure. I was kind of hoping it's not a Bare-throated as I already saw a few adults, so was optimistic that this was something else

    Fasciated or Bare-throated Tiger Heron?

    Thanks Peter! I hadn't even considered Rufescent, and you're right, it's definitely another contender. Here's another photo of the same bird. I don't think I've ever had such clear photos of a bird I've been unable to identify.

    Fasciated or Bare-throated Tiger Heron?

    Found hunting at night in the rainforest on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica.

    Southern Spain

    In June my wife and I will be visiting southern Spain for a 'relaxing beach holiday'. It was a small price to pay for a completely wildlife focussed trip to Costa Rica earlier this year. But now that we're getting closer to June, the prospect of pools and beaches for a week isn't doing it for...
