bird ID in Bardiya, Nepal - Dec 2022 (PART 2) (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hello again,

These are also photos from Bardiya National Park in Dec, 2022.

1 & 2. Siberian Stonechat? male and female?
3, 4 & 5. Different birds, but probably the same species. They look like Griffon Vultures to me, but it is not that common here.
6 & 7. Buzzards? (I don't have better photos of any of them)
8, 9 & 10. I think all are the same bird (in 9 I mean the bird in front).

1 appears to be Siberian Stonechat but I'm not sure about the dull female-type in 2 - rather dull and grey with pale edges to secondaries and tertials and a white rump. I'm wondering if it could be White-tailed Stonechat.

I think 3-5 are all imm. Himalayan Griffon - at least 3 & 5 are.

6-7 both look like juvenile Bonelli's Eagle - heavy bill, feathered tarsi, dark border to rusty-coloured underwing-coverts, carpal patch absent.

Agree with Temminck's Stint for 8-10.
