  1. common tern, Walvis Bay sunbird sp., Windhoek
  2. A ruckus under the acacias (Violet/Green Woodhoopoes)
  3. I love seeing African birds here--it gives me something to actually answer. Yes, this bird looks very good for a Southern Grey Headed Sparrow as mentioned above
  4. Hi, These were taken at the Port of Ensenada in Baja. I know I'm looking at some western gulls, but is there anything else pictured? --many thanks!
  5. Okay, North American birds aren't my specialty but let me just throw out Northern Gannet. I also struggle to see this as a gull but think the Gannet might match the OP's description a bit better than a petrel.
  6. This is a female Village Weaver with that dark bill and red eye.
  7. Agreed--I think we can be reasonably confident that this is a Hooded Vulture. Even backlit to hell, a Cape Griffon shouldn't be that dark. Then, when you factor it the long curved bill, I'm comfortable calling this as Hooded.
  8. Jumping into the threat after a long time. This is a female/non-breeding Southern Masked Weaver
  9. Agree with the other comments: I think your drab birds are Swainson's/Parrot-billed Sparrows. Though the bill in the middle picture is throwing me a bit...it has a fiscal quality that I can't quite place.
  10. Hi everyone, Walvis Bay, Namibia: Last Week I don't have much experience with Palearctic terns, but hopefully someone on this forum can help. I think this bird is an Arctic Tern (Common Tern being the only other viable option) due to the white rump and underwing pattern. They are in range in Walvis Bay, but rare (probably under-reported as Common Terns) so I'd like to get some opinions before posting it to eBird many thanks!
  11. This looks to be a domestic variety of a Muscovy Duck, perhaps with some other duck genes in the mix https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Muscovy_Duck/overview
  12. I don't really know Zim birds, but I've seen a lot of FTDRs. I'm not getting that vibe here. I agree with Trevor L. that the Southern Black Flycatcher is the best match, but would probably ultimately leave it unidentified.
  13. or just MALL? Seen in Newfoundland, Canada in September. Two individuals pictured.
  14. No, I can't confirm an ID, but I can say it's not an Egyptian Goose. The colors aren't right, plus it's missing the classic eye ring and the bulky size.
  15. I'm going through some old photos and found these blurry west coast cormorants. Are they identifiable and all the same species?
  16. thanks for the advice, I didn't know about Bird Forums
  17. Namibia - March, grassy, thorny area. 1 & 2 (same bird) might be a black-throated canary (more photos available) #3 Might be a yellow canary? Or could be an immature weaver? The best I can do on #4 is passer sp.
