  1. Posting Problems?, Please Report them here.

    You can ask a moderator to delete the duplicate for you, or to merge the two threads together; but that depends on use being around when you need it done We will merge threads that are obvious duplicate posts, especially if there are responses in both threads, when we find them, but we don't delete posts unless requested by the poster. Another good strategy to prevent confusion is to edit one of the posts (the one with no responses, if that applies) to indicate that it was an accidental duplicate; that will keep people from responding to both threads.
  2. Begging not needed; just waiting until I'm home from work!
  3. It looks like @jhauser42 was able to move it, so you're all set! But if you like use this one next time you have a European bird; like I said before the posts often drop out of sight very quickly in the NA forum, and the world bird experts check this forum so you may get more answers faster that way.
  4. Hmm it doesn't want to move. I'm on my phone; maybe @jhauser42 can help.
  5. Hi and welcome to WhatBird! It's fine to post ID requests from anywhere and it doesn't matter how "easy " the bird may be. We were all beginners at some point. However we have another for us for European and world birds. I'll move this there for you. The North American forum gets lots of action and posts can drop out of view quickly.
  6. What Bird is this?

    Welcome to WhatBird! It looks like your photo did not attach.
  7. ID. taken in Arenal Costa Ricia area two weeks ago.

    Interesting. I see bright orange, like an Orange-Billed Nightingale-Thrush.

    Again, I've had very little direct experience with this bird, but the white collar is very evident in this photo, and the legs and bill seem yellow instead of bright orange.

    I can't get the gallery to open but the second photo here (scroll down) looks pretty close too in thumbnail, especially if we assume the blue and orange are exaggerated by editing. http://www.audubon.org/field-guide/bird/white-throated-thrush

    I'm also wondering if it could be a juvenile; descriptions suggest lighter underparts and more contrast. That last photo looks closer to yours, less like what I've seen.

    They should have yellow beak and legs; the bright orange didn't seem right to me.

    And important to remember I've never been to, much less birded in, Costa Rica.

    You know, looking at the photo again, I am seeing a white collar, not as bold as I'm used to (I'd have called it White-Collared Thrush) so maybe you are right. Cornell says that the white collar is diagnostic in range. Could the lighting be making the blue and orange look more intense than it really was??

    Yeah, I'm trying to find more photos but my internet isn't cooperating. And Guatemala is quite different from CR in terms of habitat and climate, so who knows??? The cover pic here looks like the White-Throated I've seen: http://www.audubon.org/field-guide/bird/white-throated-thrush
  15. ID. taken in Arenal Costa Ricia area two weeks ago.

    It's that strong contrast between blue-black and grayish/almost white that seems wrong for me. But again I think I've only seen a White-Throated Thrush once.
