    Christmas eve present, d25 is a male born in 2011 at the Manasquan nest, in central New Jersey,he shows up around this time of year when they drain the local lake. High iso and no light but always cool to see that he is still alive and thriving, watched him chase and grab a Great blue heron for breakfast..

    Hi all!! Sorry I haven't been on in a while I wanted to update: Yesterday I went on the Clermont Christmas bird count. we saw 86 Sp. (I saw 85 personally), including a rarities 1 Snail Kite, 15 Rusty Blackbirds and 20 Barn Swallows. My 2019 yearlist is 87 after yesterday. I got 4 lifers (Easter Screech-owl, Eastern Meadowlark, Vesper Sparrow and Rusty Blackbird) which brings my lifelist to 192. Also got 14 county lifers, which brings my county list to 118.

    This morning at No Name Key, FL Key deer buck. Not much bigger than a great dane. It is tough to have to work a project in Key West in the winter. Traffic stinks

    With the yellow underparts, yellow undertail coverts, and yellow undertail, this looks good for a Yellow Warbler.

    True to form New Mexico has reverted to her old self. It is 36 and raining. The snow that has been on the ground for nearly a month is gone. The mud is about 6 inches deep. Asi es Nuevo Mexico. And they call it The Land of Enchantment. Good thing is the wind will kick up and have it dry in two days or so.

    I'll trade you a Song Sparrow for 5 of the birds that you saw that would be lifers.

    From what I can tell from the photos it looks good for an Orange-crowned. Definitely doesn't have the wing-bars or eye-ring of a Ruby-crowned. What is your location? Helps to know location as it can narrow down possibilities for an ID.

    Looks like a Cooper's with the thin, crisp streaking, blocky head, and graduated tail feathers. Nice shot!

    I think this is a sharpie but you can correct me if I'm wrong. Either way - someone put a bad on it

    It is a Golden Eagle, but I don't see anything that suggests juvenile.

    The taxonomy of Asian Buteos is rather complicated currently and it is quite difficult to differentiate the exact Buteo species given the degree of overlap in their ranges and plumage differences. Based on range (HBW), Eastern Buzzard (Buteo japonicus) should be the most likely option in Thailand, although the paper below states that the Buteo japonicus from their native range in Japan look very different from the typical ones found in Thailand, which they propose are of a different subspecies under the Common Buzzard. Himalayan Buzzard is also possible (based on plumage) although HBW does state that Thailand is out of range. From what I've read in my attempts to identify the buzzards I saw in Thailand, there doesn't seem to be any consensus on the ranges of various species/subspecies and how they are split. Personally, I was unable to satisfactorily identify the buzzards I saw in Thailand myself. If you're interested, this is the paper that gives a good overview of the Buteo complex in Asia: http://www.caluta.liitin.net/Caluta/Caluta4.pdf. But also, I'm not an expert on raptors and this is just my two cents based on my readings. Cheers!

    Hi, I think this is a Common Buzzard. Note its broad tail, and short neck. In addition, the diagnostic dark spot on the carpal joint really makes me think that you've got a Common Buzzard here. Nice pictures and Happy New Year!
