Eagles

I wasn't sure whether to just do Birds of Prey as a single group but in the end decided Eagles needed to be separated out

Stellar's Sea Eagle Hokkaido, Japan
White-tailed Eagle - Hoakkaido Japan
Black-chested Snake Eagle - Awash, Ethiopia
Steppe Eagle - Serengetti Tanzania
Brown Snake Eagle - Senegambia Gambia

more of sunbirds, this time the Olive backed sunbird.
when i was in my hotel room in Bali, i heard what reminded me of the Nile-Valley sunbirds that live in my garden, and just like them it was around 11:00 am, wen to the garden and was not difficult for me to find the male on these beautiful flowers. the female was a bit harder to spot, as they are less noisy.

Woodpeckers

We have gone for

Blood-coloured Woodpecker - from near Georgetown, Guyana
Beautiful Woodpecker - this photo from Colombia doesn't do it justice but a brilliant bird to see
Golden-olive Woodpecker - Asa Wright on Trinidad
Powerful Woodpecker - near Ibague, Colombia
White Woodpecker - Pantanal, Brazil

Antpittas

If woodpeckers were colourful and showy the Antpittas certainly are not!
Cryptic but with distinctive songs it is great to get a glimpse and until recently I had hardly any useable photos of this species.

Shown here are

Streak-chested Antpitta - Arenal, Costa Rica
Chestnut-capped Antpitta - Rio Blanco, Colombia
Yellow-breasted Antpitta - Mindo, Ecuador
Ochre-bellied Antpitta - Angel Paz, Ecuador
Rusty-breasted (SM) Antpitta - Santa Marta, Colombia

Inspired by Corvid 19 - Crows

Inspired by the Corvid19 thread I was looking at crows on the life list and some photos.

Streseman's Bushcrow was my 5000th birds so takes pride of place,
New Caledonia Crow using a tool near Noumea on NC is a close second,
then a couple of Magpies Bornean Green and Taiwan Blue

and finally

Thick-billed Raven from Ethiopia.

Cranes

Cranes are among the most elegant birds on the planet. We were luck to see the Siberian Crane at Bharatphur around 20 years ago but haven't dug out the photo yet.

So most of this batch come from Japan

We have
Japanese (Red-crowned) Crane - dancing in the snow on Hokkaido;
White-naped Crane - Kyushu
Hooded Crane - Kyushu
Sandhill Crane - USA
Black Crowned Crane - Awash,Ethiopia

Thanks James.

Looking back at photos from almost 10 years ago with few labels and trying to ID and link back to my notes means I've probably got a couple wrong on these and I suspect a couple of others.

My first courser was Temmick's, which I spotted in Gambia when out with Solomon Jallow, who said I had beautiful eyes, Sarah still laughs at the memory.

Somali Courser - Yabello, Ethiopia
Heughlin's Courser - Serengeti, Tanzania
Double-banded Courser - Serengeti, Tanzania
Cream-coloured Courser - Lanzarote, Canary Islands

Toucans

Toucans, Toucanets and Aracari are usually bright colourful and noisy but getting close to photograph them isn't always easy.

Not necessarily the most beautiful but our current favourites are

Plate-billed Mountain Toucan - near Mindo Ecuador;
Green Aracari - Guianan endemic at Iwokrama
Collared Aracari - Arenal, Costa Rica
Yellow-throated Toucan - Tortuguero, Costa Rica
Toco Toucan - Iguasu, Brazil

Broadbills

Sarah asked for Broadbill but African Green Broadbill from Bwindi, Uganda I only got a very poor record shot which I can't locate and Rufous-sided from Kakum, Ghana I also can't find. Didn't photograph Dusky or Long-tailed

So top four photos only this time

Yellow and Black
Black and Red
Whitehead's
and Green

all from Borneo / Malaysia
