    Bunting ? Oulu River, Finland. June 2023

    Can someone confirm this? Taken using phone camera on my work teambuilding trip to Oulu yesterday, w/central Finland, by the Oulu River about 20 km from the city. Eye stripe and thick beak were visible. Loads of other good birds around if I'd have had time to do any real birding....

    ID help from Ecuador...

    Agree. IIRC their song is like a high-pitched trim phone ringing. In a hotel in Leticia,Colombia, I couldn't understand why nobody answered the phone until I saw the sparrow.

    Hummingbirds, La Carbonera, Colombia

    Birds of Northern South America says next to Buff-Tailed Coronet "all Boissonneaua coronets have the habit of holding their wings up in the air for a few moments after landing on a perch" - an ID tip very nicely shown in your photo! Also great photo showing the enormous beak length of the...

    Very narrow escape for a male Hen Harrier!

    That's an astonishing thing to witness! I had no idea Peregrines would go for harriers. I have seen a Brown Hare attack a (juvenile) Marsh Harrier - even leaping a few feet in the air like a cat as the Harrier took off. Sadly, I don't think these are any deterents against human persecution...

    Owl sp in Brazil v Serbia match

    Not a good idea to bring owls to football matches - you might recall a Barn Owl being kicked by a player during a league match in Colombia. Presumably that one is tame - it seems to have only one leg too.

    What's the rarest bird you've had in your garden?

    ID request - Cali, Colombia

    If you are using the ProAves "Birds of Colombia" then you might have one or two problems like this. Although it's very useful as the only available guide that's pocket-sized, some of the pictures are in need of improvement. Birds of Northern South America has much better pictures, but not as...
