Bird ID for multiple random birds (1 Viewer)

Hi everyone!

It's my first time posting here, but I thought it would be nice to join a forum and be more active in the birding community in general.

I am an amateur birdwatcher and photographer and I also love to paint birds. I often like to trawl sites that offer copyright free photos of birds that I can save and paint from later. The problem is, often these sites do not give any information on the exact species of the birds, which I would really like to know.

I've identified most of them myself, but I've posted a range of the photos where I couldn't work it out, if anyone can assist :)
As they are not my photos and are from multiple sources, I really can't offer any extra information on location, habitat, size, etc.

Thanks all,

Hi Lara! Just wanted to jump in here and wish you a warm welcome from those of us on staff here at BirdForum :t:

Please join in wherever you like.
Not my photos, sadly! Just photos I have collected from other sources that I can use in paintings. I do take some bird photos though, so perhaps I will post those in future.
