    Small brown bird seen in Tijuana Mexico Dec 30, 2017. I think it's a Flycatcher or Phebe of some sort.

    "grey" Snowy Egret, Campeche, Mexico

    Hi all, It is possible, from this single shot, to say if this Snowy Egret is just dirty or if the feathers above are really grey for some reasons ? I guess bare parts colours exclude hybridation but a second thought is welcome. Photo from today in a mixed egret colony in Ciudad del Carmen...

    Terns in Mexico, today

    Hi all, I have spent months in Ciudad del Carmen (Campeche, Mexico) and didn't see any Sterna untill today ! On this photo, you can see two Sterna on the left and I'd like your comment on their identification. I guess Forster's and Common are the two options. Thanks very much. o

    Unknown bird - Chunchucmil (Merida) Mexico

    Another terrible long-distance shot against a cloudy sky... I have very little idea of what this could be... It is a bit Kingbird-like but there are no matches in that family. What's more, it is probably smaller in size. No match either in the Vireo family. Any suggestions ? Chunchucmil...

    Raptor ID - Tequesquitengo, Morelos, Mexico - 27/2/21

    This raptor landed in a tree having just swiped it‘s prey out of the air (possibly a swallow). It was a long way off so photo clarity is not great. Possibly a juvenile, but really not sure what it is. Seen just near lake Tequesquitengo in Morelos, Mexico, on Saturday 27 February 2021. I have...
