    Abandoned Chick found on Crete’s Asterusia Montains

    Hi, I am just a traveler who found an abandoned chick which ID I would like to know. Also, please let me know if I should/can feed the chick and how. It is in my humble opinion very large and probably belongs to a large bird. I found the chick in an empty house on the ground with cats sneaking...

    Falcon ID Crete, Greece

    Dear birders, I found an old photo (September 2013) taken on Crete. Unfortunately, it's rather low quality but perhaps you're able to identify this one. I assume it's either peregrine falcon or lanner? Thank you in advance, Manuel

    Pine Bunting? - Thessaloniki, Greece (January)

    Hi, I was birdwatching with a guide around Lake Kerkini and Thessaloniki in mid January, and there is a site which had 3 or 4 Pine Buntings overwintering. I mainly saw Reed and Corn Bunting, but we spotted one individual (pictures attached) which looked a bit different to us. My guide noted a...

    Tern species (Greece, Europe)

    On May 5th I went to a birding hotspot but not for birding (I was upset). I only managed to get these bad pictures. This is probably a lifer for me. I thought at first that it was a common tern but the swallow-like forked tail is clearly not there. I am confused because I have little experience...

    bunting (?) ID (Northern Greece)

    In January 29th I saw this yellow passerine that I first thought was a yellowhammer, BUT then i realized that a lot of species look like that. It was seen in a marsh area next to the coast. It flew off before I could get better footage. Maybe i'm just overthinking again and it's just a corn...

    Dead raptor ID (Greece)

    I saw this corpse washed up on the shore. I took a close-up of its talons to see if that helps with the identification. I found it in the Thermaikos gulf, Thessaloniki. Anyone know what It might be? I dont know many birds of prey, and this one is really decomposed. I just worry if it is a rare...

    possibly zitting cisticola? (Thessaloniki, Greece)

    I took a picture of this bird at a marsh yesterday. I am not sure about zitting cisticola, I think it looks too dark (may be the bad lighting, it was a cloudy day) and too chunky. But then again I dont know any passerines with a clear, unspotted chest, that would match the wing pattern and...
