    Sandpiper in Alameda, CA

    Dead on.

    Parasitic Jaeger

    Parasitic (possibly 2cy but I don't know much about ageing these). Check the slender bill, triangular head, pale frontal blaze.

    Ballykelly Marsh, Northern Ireland (June) - bar-tailed godwits?

    Lower 3 photos of B show mostly (completely?) Bar-taileds - white wedge on the backs.

    Two birds in Pamukale to ID.

    Hi Alexander, Certainly not an easy photo as it's from a weird angle and it's still growing its tail but; slim bill, overall greyer colouration, well demarcated white primary patch (niloticus Woodchat would also show this but Pamukkale is too far W for it) and dark rump are visible here.

    Eastern Black-eared Wheatear and Masked Shrike

    Unusual bird species of their Families

    Pale Rockfinch is apparently very divergent from other Old World sparrows, I believe a recent study suggested it belonged with wagtails and pipits?

    Unknown juvenile

    Interesting that your bulletpoint list clearly favors Common Redstart, yet you went with European Robin :) I also agree with juv Common Redstart

    Sandpiper help near Bangkok Thailand

    Both look fine for RNS I think; the long-bodied and short, droopy billed look along with the less contrasting plumage is typical.

    Warbler near Amsterdam

    This seems to be a fully-fledged bird in 1st winter plumage, so I'd agree with Richard here. Primary projection and face pattern also don't fit WW.

    Little gull? Norfolk UK.

    Yes it is

    Booted/Sykes's Warbler--NE Iran

    Also, it's a Wood Sandpiper on the checklist, not Green.

    Booted/Sykes's Warbler--NE Iran

    This would appear to be a Sykes's; on the checklist, I think your 'Eastern Olivaceous' is a Common Reed and your 'Common Reed' looks like another Sykes's Warbler (the audio recordings for Common Reed are correct, though).

    Swifts for confirmation - Bulgaria

    They are all Pallids IMO, but only focusing on the eye-mask (or any single feature, really) makes IDs prone to error. See the paler head sides, large throat patches with diffuse borders, scaling concentrated on central belly, and broad head shape. Photo 2 shows the darker mantle while photo 5...

    Small wild bird I rescued need help identifying

    It is a European Nightjar. It's unlikely you'll be able to take care of it so you should probably contact a local wildlife rehabber or the local DKMP (national parks). In the meantime best to not interact with the bird as much as possible; you could try putting it in a cardboard box. If you...

    Unknown Raptor, Axios National Park, Greece last week

    Maybe I shouldn't comment while I'm looking at it from my mobile, but I can't see any remige/rectrice moult in this bird, nor anything that particularly stands out against an adult female. I'd be happy to be corrected though.

    dispel my doubts - marsh warbler?

    Photos not good enough IMO

    Sedge Warbler in south of Swedish

    As someone who has always had a special interest in Marsh vs Common Reed ID (not to say I'm absolutely perfect at it!) and also someone who will readily admit to leaving many 1cy in autumn unassigned to a species, I can confidently (for whatever that's worth) say that these birds tick all the...

    Sedge Warbler in south of Swedish

    The recording is a Sedge, but all the photos show Marsh Warblers

    Greenish warbler or not? Gilan, Iran

    I'm not seeing any recordings

    Warbler: Phylloscopus or Hippolais? Ibiza - Spain

    Wow, that's new to me too. I've always felt the literature 'suggested' (though I've probably never seen in written explicitly) that neither Icterine or Melodious dipped tail, so I was quite surprised when I saw my first Icterine tail dipping somewhat regularly (never on pallida-levels though)

    Red-footed Falcon , aging

    First is a 2cy male. The other one is a female but I can't be sure on the age, perhaps a 3cy?

    Wheatears on Lesbos between 9th and 12th May

    If Western Bonelli's and Melodious Warblers can turn up in the Balkans then W Black-eared surely can too, but these aren't it.

    Wheatears on Lesbos between 9th and 12th May

    A bit of a strange pipit

    Mantle streaking seems weak for an RTP to me, I'd call it a worn Meadow Pipit
