  • Forum Thread: Question 3 of 3 - complete mystery to me...

    And so to my final question for today (I promise). Walking back to the car from seeing our mystery bird of prey (and tons of other things including our first pintail) we looked across the canal to the other bank. First we used binoculars, then a scope. I said 'mistle thrushes' and there...

  • Forum Thread: 2 Birds in need of ID.

    Hello... I'm new to this game and know practically nothing about birds. I've spotted a couple of birds in my garden that I initially thought were sparrows (as we have loads of sparrows around, both House and the other one) but I'm not so sure after taking a photo or two. The first one...
