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


Well-known member

I took these photos in Bardiya, both around my hotel and inside the national park in Dec, 2022. Appreciate your help for ID.

Thanks in advance

1. Olive-backed Pipit? Or is there any chance for Rosy pipit? because it seems more common in the area.
2. Besra?
3 & 4. The same bird. Which warbler?
5 & 6. Another pipit.
7. Long-tailed or Grey-backed Shrike?
8. Stint?

The warbler in nos. 3-4 looks like Large-billed Leaf Warbler - long heavy bill with dark mark on lower mandible and pale, slightly hooked tip.

Nos. 5-6 could be Richard's Pipit - lores look clean, lacking a warm brown cheek patch, tail looks long, bill looks quite heavy in one image, lacks gingery tones on flight feathers. I'm not completely sure though. Paddyfield is much more common in Nepal.
