  1. Thanks for the links. Without the first link I would continue to define birds wrong. That was great. With the second link I can try and improve my ID skills between first and second cycle for a GBBG.
  2. Would this maybe be a second winter Great Black-backed Gull? I'm slowly gaining some confidence in Juvenile Gulls. Taken Winter 2021 New Jersey. Thanks. Gull Juvenile - 1.JPG (whatbird.com) Gull Juvenile - 2.JPG (whatbird.com)

  4. Thanks for your efforts trying to find a match on this. I went through all the bird pictures in ebird in the area, and I just didn't have a good enough picture to tell. Maybe a flycatcher, it's been so long I can't tell if there was a water source near by. At the time, I didn't prepare myself enough in advance to try and see what I could be looking at. But I'm just grateful I had the opportunity to goto a country not often visited.
  5. Yes. Thank you for the insight. It's too bad I could get different angled shots. But looking on the web at good lizzard buzzard pictures, wow what a nice bird. Thanks.
  6. For a long while, I only seemed to see the same type of Nonbreeding loons until the other day. That makes me think I can differentiate between the Nonbreeding common and NonBreeding Red-throated. Would Loon 1 and Loon 2 be Nonbreeding Common and Loon 3 be Nonbreeding Red-throated? ID confirm please. The speckled back on Loon 3 seems to be differentiated enough. .. Loon 3 picture was taken yesterday. All in New Jersey. Question -- if the loons were to bread this year, when would their plumage begin to change. In otherwords, is Loon 3 staying nonbreeding this year, or

  10. Thank you. It adds another possibility. I was only ruling out rook based on adult pictures, not considering immature.
  11. This picture is from Brussels. I'm not sure if in Europe the challenge between distinguishing pictures of Crows vs Ravens is the same as in the US. I did not see the bird fly. Is that really the only way to tell the difference (besides vocally) or is there a way can this bird be IDed? https://forums.whatbird.com/index.php?/gallery/image/973-belguim-birdjpg/ Thank you
  12. There are 2 different birds I saw in Zimbabwe. One at Kuimba Shiri bird park near Harare, the other in a neighborhood of Harare. I don't know if they are both African Goshawk's, a different Goshawk or something else. Could I have an ID on both birds please. Thank you. https://forums.whatbird.com/index.php?/gallery/image/972-zimbabwe-bird/ https://forums.whatbird.com/index.php?/gallery/image/974-zimbabwe-bird-imirejpg/
