Just wow!
Very wonderful photos, plus I suspect each one carries memories.
You might assemble your trip notes and photos into a book or an on line biography. In these days that may be the closest we can get to actually seeing the parts of the world which you've so spectacularly recorded.

Indeed a truly remarkable collection, David. Certainly brought back a few memories for me of some of the astonishing things in existence on this Planet. I wouldn't have mentioned it but for the sake of the fact it was my Bird of the Year in 2012 when I spent three months as a guide in a Bornean rainforest, but its Black-and-Yellow Broadbill in plate 50, not t'other way round! Like little cuddly toys , they are.

I have started to put trip reports and bird photos on a website but I'm not making it searchable yet until it is a bit better.

Probably best referred to nowadays as Desert Grey Shrike L. elegans (Dutch Birding CDNA/CSNA List), given that Southern Grey Shrike is now confined to Iberia and southern France, its closest relatives being North American taxa...
MJB
PS Quite how well Canary Islands koenigi fits into the elegans complex needs further work via DNA techniques other than mtDNA...

I do remember reading about this a while back. I'll need to keep an eye on it as it evolves.

Puffbirds

Puffbirds and Nunbirds often remain perched for long periods so pretty easy to see but the angle for a photo is often difficult.

Black Nunbird - Iwokrama, Guyana
Russet-throated Puffbird - near Santa Marta, Colombia
Lanceolated Monklet - Tatama, Colombia
White-whiskered Puffbird - Carara, Costa Rica
Guianan Puffbird - Surama, Guyana

Moluccan Owlet Nightjar - Weda Resort, Halmahera
Savannah Nightjar - Bali
Ladder-tailed Nightjar- Iwokorama Guyana

Hi David. Not here to criticise this time, just thought it was time to compliment you again on keeping up with this wonderful effort. I do sometimes like the brain melt of being reminded just how many incredible bird families there are in the World. Luckily, for me, in most cases I've see at least one of the groups you portray, although with the Manakins I think I've got at least three? Since I probably won't be going back to the Neotropics in this lifetime, might be time I reminded myself of the bizarre displays of that family by digging out my Attenborough Life of Birds, or searching YouTube.

One thing only, and I wouldn't even call this a correction... I dipped the Satanic/Diabolical Nightjar on Lore Lindu , Sulawesi a few years ago, much to my dismay, because of the incredible name. I understand recent texts have gone on to give it a less colourful name altogether (begins with H, I think?). I ought to be pleased since it would lessen the sting of the dip, but I'm not: I'd be like you and still call it by one of its 'old' names.

Other name is Heinrich's Nightjar, but birds of Indonesian Archipelago has it as Satanic. However as latin name is Eurostopodus Diabolicus - I will probably always refer to it as Diabolical

It didn't load due to size and when I tried to convert/resize it I didn't rename or save original so it is IMGnnnn.jpg and I can't find it in usual directories and I have thousands of IMGn files. Duh!
