Mystery Birds

On our ramblings we see, and hear, a lot of birds and other creatures. However, more often than not, we don’t really know what we can hear or see. Websites like the NABU‘s or RSPB‘s are helpful when it comes to putting a name on things, as are fellow birders on twitter (@titodaking).

But sometimes, well, the bird remains a mystery. So, here are some pics – all taken since the beginning of April. The location for each photo is given, and you, dear reader, are invited to write into the comment section who the birds are. 🙂

The offer is a glass of wine / a cup of tea for each ID.

  1. 1. Goldcrest (Regulus regulus)
    2. Greylag Goose (Anser anser)
    3. Definitely Kites (Milvus sp.) bottom bird seems to be Red Kite, in the upper left corner seems to be Black Kite. Compare the shape of the tail in the birdguide.
    4. seems to be Chaffinch
    5. I would say Chiffchaf, but as I said the best identification is according to their song
