  1. Taken this morning, Parry Sound District, Ontario

    Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts based on these bad pics (one has been slightly darkened). 3 birds flew over me today. Listened closely for honking or trumpeting but calls sounded softer making me think tundra but I cannot be 100%. Tundra and Trumpeter are rare but more so Tundra. Thanks.

  2. These are 3 different sets of pictures and I am wondering if there is a Hoary Redpoll here.

    The first 2 pictures were taken on Nov. 12 in Parry Sound District, Ontario. I am wondering about the bird on the top right in the first pic, which moves to the bottom in the second pic.

    The third pic was taken in York Region, Ontario on Nov. 18

    The rest of the pics were taken Nov. 25 in Parry Sound District, Ontario. The first picture of this set is a Common (and most others looked like this) but the bird in the last 3 pics looked paler,  slightly larger and definitely stood out when all the redpolls took flight together. 

    Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

    1. Gray-breasted Prinia - similar to Ashy but has the darker collar across the breast (I can't find Ashy records for Myanmar on eBird either)

    2. Initial thought was some species of spiderhunter or sunbird

    3. Yes, domesticated guineafowl

    4. Chinese Blackbird I believe

    5. Likely another Chinese Blackbird

    Thank you! I believe 1 and 3 are confirmed! My initial thought was the same for 2 but I cannot find a species that matches. 4 has a crossed bill and seems glossy and appears out of range for the Chinese Blackbird. I will keep searching for 2, 4 & 5. Thanks again!

    1. Sardinian Warbler

    2. Rusty-fronted Flycatcher

    3. Helmeted Guineafowl

    4. Pass

    5. Pass

    Thank you for your post.

    Although 1 is compelling for a Sardinian Warbler, I have yet to find any records of one occurring in Burma and the species does not show up, not even as a rare bird on Ebird. 

    For #2, I could not find any species with this name anywhere. The closest I found was the Rusty-fronted Tody Flycatcher in South America.

    3 does look like Helmeted Guineafowl but they are native to Africa so they are obviously domesticated.

    If you could give more detail for 1 & 2 as to the reasons why this is what you think, that would be great.

    Thanks for your help. 

  5. These pictures were taken Sept. 8 at Keith McLean CA in southwestern Ontario. I had originally thought immature Bald Eagle, but considered Golden. I have just noticed an Ebird posting from that date and location reporting a Golden Eagle. I am wondering what the consensus is here? Thank you. 









  6. These photos were taken back in 2014 and are my last photos to identify from the trip. 

    The first one is late April in Hispaw,  Myanmar

    The second one is early March near Kampot, Cambodia

    The third picture is taken on the outskirts of Phnom Phen, Cambodia  in mid Feb.and I am also wondering if they are domesticated?

    The last two pictures were taken in Tonsay, Thailand (the south) in late May. 

    Thank you for any help!
