Hi,
I'm finally about to create an album of my honeymoon trip... last 2011
But before I would like to be sure of the identification of the birds.

All photos have been taken in Northern parks, in late November / early December 2011.

Can you confirm the ID's, and give me the answer when I don't know?

I've put all pictures in a Google album. You'll find the # and caption of each photo by clicking on "info".


Please tell me my mistakes :)

Thanks a lot

Cheers

I can't see any way to see what you think they are?

which one, almost all are straightforward?
Yes they are mostly straightforward IDs Tom, but Andy was referring to the fact there are over 100 images to scroll through so knowing which is which in order to reply could be confusing.

Andy, when you open the gallery and see all the images in tiled view, you then have to click on each individual image separately which you then will see are already helpfully numbered in the bottom left hand corner (many already are named too by the OP) - from there it’s easy to match your suggestions with the right images.

OK, yes too many images; in my browser, if you leave the arrow (next image) the name shows in the left lower corner

Not on mys system it doesn't.

As Deb suggested, you have to open each image, to see if the poster has suggested a name or not.

I did not have to click each image. Just click the first one. It should get bigger. Then you should have an arrow on the right side to move to the next photo. Guess it depends on your system. I have Windows 10.

You still have to click on each image to open the next one using the arrow - as opposed to just scrolling down the tiled gallery that’s what I meant otherwise the link just opens up in a tiled format of the whole gallery view where the numbers etc aren't visible. Other devices browsers may get a different experience of course!

Can you see a bird name in the picture when you do this?

Same as Andy for me - that's why I answered in the way I did (post #2) by right-click on the pic and select 'copy link' (y)

Yes, when I click on the first photo, it gets bigger and there is also a name and number for each bird.

I just have to click on the first & then swipe left to right to get subsequent pictures. A number & name (if given) appears for each photo after a brief pause.

Thank you all for your help ! I thought I had set the notifications on, but it seems not.
Google photos is supposed to show each caption when you click on the "i" (info).
