    Black&white duck;Medium size;South-West Romania[banat region]

    Forgot to mention, this may be very important: One of those guys done a low alt flight, I got to see a glimpse of their body: The quality is much better without the camera, Im looking right now at goosanders pics and they seem to match pretty much the male desc perfectly, however the female...

    Black&white duck;Medium size;South-West Romania[banat region]

    Mmm I see, they indeed do look like goosanders. For the goldeneye ID, I think the head isnt too "bulky" for goldeneye.

    IDENTIFICARE PASARE MICA GALBENA

    The bird still remains unidentified but there are blue tits (100% verified, as one literally came next to me) so Im guessing it was indeed a blue tit

    Flock of loud dark colored chirping birds - Northen Balkans, South East Romania

    The flock was around 40, those included in the image were not the only ones; I did not observe any special tail to them, so the option of them being Eurasian magpies fails; I do not suspect them of being in corvus sp as the sound doubts me (Listen to Audio to full 100%) Weather was cloudy...

    Private land

    No not at all, in fact where I go there are active hunters hunting for pheasants in the fields. I never had problems with this type of things Its just a thought that came to my mind.

    Private land

    Im birding in fields, grasslands and hills. They have agricultural land (or better said, they WILL have in the spring) and arable land. They arent owned by state but by people. Is it illegal or something? There are even hunters in this place so I guess its nothing is it? I do have natural...

    Need ID for a prey bird

    Location is in Sothern westren Romania around the Serbian border, a field with forestry of oak wood around the "Victor Vlad Delamarin" village. The bird was flying away, got scared by some hunter's gunshot in distance. The bird was of prey and had a round head; which would maybe be a kestrel...

    8x or 10x?

    So I can get a 10x porro? Roofs are expensive here in Romania as porros are more popular. If they dont make a diff between magnification then I dont see a reason to go roof other than weight, which does not bother me as I am used to it.

    8x or 10x?

    I thought the same, I also have steady hands and I like to be stationary in open areas, so 10x would be a better option.

    8x or 10x?

    I am pretty unhappy with the magnification, but I have a porro bino, which is 8x and I am talking about 8x roof. How far would be the diff between a 8x porro and a 8x roof?

    8x or 10x?

    I live in Romania, Banat region. Fields and hills are more dominant but forestry can be found. I use an old porro 8x42mm and really want to change to the roof binos. I am interested more in areas with fields/hills and water and I go there often. But I also go in forestry. So I dont know what...
