More from Tenerife

Please help with these,

1 & 2 I’m thinking Barthelot’s Pipit
3 I’m thinking the African Blue Tit
4 a guess would be Serin
5 is this the Canary Island Chiffchaff again

Please confirm or correct my guesses
Thank you

Agree with them all except that the Serins are Atlantic Canaries.

Can I query how sure you are on that? The bills look quite small to me, more a Serin character. Serin is introduced & feral on Tenerife, so ID can't be done simply by its location on the Canary Islands.

Can we tell from tail length? These are quite long relative to wing length which I think suggests canary but I agree the bills are stubby.

These are definitely not Serins, head pattern is a lot more contrasting and the white ground to the lower underparts would be obvious, also tails look too long. Basically, I'm seeing Serins every day down here and no, they are not Serins

That would be a great name for a pub - The Unequivocal Canary

Or a species of bird. Though maybe it would better suit something like Unequivocal Antshrike
