    ID help please

    Thanks all, most helpful. Osprey was obviously most unlikely, but still, biggest buzzard I've ever seen, and unusual to have no characteristic chest markings.

    ID help please

    Seen on Bodmin Moor, Cornwall, UK, today. Sorry photo isn't better, only saw it quickly from car. For context, it is very large, body close to twice the size of a buzzard, I would say. Breast creamy white with no spots or bars. Osprey??

    Nikon P1000 Flexible program

    Hopefully someone has some advice about this... I am fairly new to my P1000, and I love it. But I have a problem with flexible program (known also as program shift). According to the manual (Alexander White), flexible program works just by selecting Program mode then pointing the camera at the...

    Crow or Raven? (Bodmin Moor)

    Ravens are quite common on the moor, just not sure it’s big enough. Also, in some shots, the eyes look blue.

    Very brief visit on my woodshed, gone in a flash. It was small though, the size of a dunnock.

    Azure Gallinule?

    Yes, well he may have said it was a rail, not sandpiper, but it was 5 years ago and all I’m really certain of is he didn’t identify it accurately. Anyway, my curiosity is now satisfied.

    Azure Gallinule?

    Thank you very much Larry and Microtus. I’ve been wondering about it for years!

    Azure Gallinule?

    Haha, no, he was very good and got a decent tip. We were not there for birding so that was not his speciality. He did find Jaguars and giant river otters and other things we had not been able to find on an earlier visit, and that was his remit, along with much detailed knowledge of the flora...

    Azure Gallinule?

    I'm new here so please indulge me if I post a question about birds I identified at an earlier time. I took this photo in the Amazon rainforest in Peru, December 2016, from an oxbow lake next to Rio Tambopata, Madre de Dios region. My guide thought it was a sandpiper, but I believe it is a rare...
