  1. 1. I think the extent of rufous look in range for Blue-tailed based off of images on eBird. Tail shape, with the longer central feathers, all supports Blue-tailed. 2. I can't really help with this one, but it does seem that Kentish Plovers usually have darker legs, and these ones are pretty pale. 3. Strikes me as a Wood Sandpiper 4. First impression was some accipiter, but I can't find a perfect match on eBird...
  2. Blue Whistling-Thrush is a much better suggestion for #4! I think that's a good fit.
  3. Structurally it strikes me as a House Sparrow, so maybe one that's been stained?
  4. 1. Ruff 2-3. Indian Chat perhaps? Also known as Brown Rock Chat. 4. Maybe the same as above. 5. Domestic swan geese
  5. 1. Scaly-breasted Thrasher 2-3. House Sparrows 4. Well it looks like a mockingbird, and the only one on Curacao is Tropical Mockingbird. Maybe a little disheveled? Doesn't look like a typical Tropical to me. 5. I think it looks better for a Saffron Finch, or some other finch (St. Lucia has Grassland Yellow-Finches).
  6. I think Scaly-headed Parrot matches the best -- especially with the bright red vent, and some of the scaly patterning is visible in the head. It looks as if they vary quite a bit with the amount of blue in the head and white around the eye. Iguazu Falls is too far south for Blue-headed Parrots as well.
  7. 1 and 2 look correct. 3 looks better for a young Eurasian Blackbird. 4. Young Eurasian Sparrowhawk, probably
  8. 32. some kind of Elaenia... probably Yellow-bellied Elaenia, but I'm not confident on that. 33. Black-and-white Warbler 34. female Summer Tanager I believe 35. Myiarchus species (a genus of flycatchers)... I personally won't be able to identify this. 36. White-eared Ground-Sparrow 37. Rufous-collared Sparrow
  9. 30. Purple-throated Mountain-gem. Location always helps, but turns out female White-bellied Mountain-gems actually look considerably different, and there are just mis-identified photos online. 31. Common Tody-Flycatcher
  10. 26. I think this could fit Green-crowned Brilliant better, just as there isn't much copper in the rump and the tail has a more bluish iridescence. I personally probably can't put a confident ID on it just with the back though. 29 is a juvenile Green-crowned Brilliant. What was the location for #30? It's a female mountain-gem, and they have pretty distinct ranges to help separate them.
  11. 25. Sooty-faced Finch 27. Looks like it. 28. Coppery-headed Emerald I can look at the others later today unless IvoryBillHope beats me to them.
  12. Olive-backed and Yellow-crowned are the only euphonias supposed to be in that park according to eBird, so I think that Olive-backed is a safe bet. 17. Looks good for a Rufous-tailed Hummingbird.
  13. Short tail and brighter colour favour White-bellied (as does frequency in that park).
  14. Structure, face pattern, and bill are off for a lark. Lesser Short-toed Lark has also not been reported in eBird in that province before. Face pattern matches Eurasian Linnet quite well.
  15. 6. Euphonia sp, do you have a more exact location in the country? Olive-backed would be my guess with the minimal rufous on the lower belly. 16. Chestnut-sided Warbler
  16. 1. Green Sandpiper -- I think of it as the European version of our Solitary Sandpiper 2. Black-headed Weavers 3. Wood Sandpiper -- their version of our Lesser Yellowlegs
  17. 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
  18. 2. Spotted Morning Thrush 3. I would agree with Chestnut-bellied Sandgrouse 5. Spotted Morning Thrush 7. Wood Sandpiper 8. Grey-headed Kingfisher 9. Wood Sandpiper 14. Marsh Sandpiper, I believe 19. Rock Martins 26. Looks like another Wood Sandpiper Pass on the rest...
  19. 1. House Sparrows 2. (Feral) Rock Pigeon 3. Black-headed Gull 4. Common Wood-Pigeon 5. Hooded Crow 6. White Wagtail 7. Yellow-legged Gull likely, but someone with better experience on juvenile gulls from Europe should probably confirm. 8. Italian Sparrow
  20. The most common violetear in Quito is Sparkling, with Lesser (split from Green) seen but not as commonly as Sparkling. The blue patch on the belly definitely fits Sparkling better than Lesser, and so I would imagine that the second image is a Sparkling Violetear as well.
  21. Not sure if the others are identifiable, but the third looks like a Red-throated Ant-Tanager.
  22. 1-4. Chestnut-sided Warbler 5. Not sure which hummingbird, a little tough with the angle 6-10. Tropical Gnatcatcher 11-17. Plain-coloured Tanagers
