  8. Hi! Another ID which I always find tricky. What do you think, is this little guy a Tropical kingbird or a Couch kingbird? Is there any particular defining feature that is easy to see other that "one is bigger than the other"? Thanks a lot! https://www.flickr.com/photos/154579675@N03/shares/ica937 I tried to add the image directly to the post, but I couldn't manage it... I tried inserting the link using the "insert other media" button but it wasn't accepted because "there is no image associated to that link". Please let me know if you can see the image. If anyone could help me figure out if I am doing something wrong it would be greatly appreciated!

  18. I'd appreciate some ID for this small wren which I found in a swampy area at the edge of a saline playa in desert some miles W of Puerto PeƱasco ('La Salina' RAMSAR site). All photos are of the same individual. My guess was Marsh Wren because of habitat, but I'm not familiar with the small wrens. https://www.flickr.com/photos/davidbygott/32911767460/in/album-72157678806402362/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/davidbygott/33139309452/in/album-72157678806402362/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/davidbygott/32911767180/in/album-72157678806402362/
  19. Hello, my photographer boss took these photos in Tecate, Baja, Mexico in May. Any help identifying them would be appreciated.. thanks!
  20. I saw this bird at about 7:15 am this past Sunday, 1/17/2016, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I am a bit lost on the identification, between the white eye crescents, small dark bill, and relatively faintly streaked yellow breast and belly. The closest match I can find is the Palm Warbler, but while that isn't unprecedented in the area, it is certainly rare. Perhaps El Nino is responsible. Regardless, I was hoping that I might find either confirmation or a different identification. I have three mediocre pictures here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/137894171@N02/23937214824/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/137894171@N02/24565369505/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/137894171@N02/24565369505/in/dateposted-public/ Thanks in advance.
  21. I spotted this bird in the early morning (7:15 am) in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on 1/17/2016. It was in a field of grass and brush, and moved around very quickly. It flicked its tail a lot. I was thinking perhaps Palm Warbler, but while not unprecedented, this would be a very unusual sighting. I was hoping someone might be able to either confirm or provide other thoughts. Thanks in advance.
  22. Nuevo Vallarta Hummingbirds

    I found these two cuties in a bush overlooking the beach and I'm stumped! Any ideas?
  23. This was taken in Nuevo Vallarta in July. He/she went all the way under in fresh water. Can't find exact matches. Does anyone have an idea about this guy? Thanks! Andie
  24. Sandpiper ID

    Hi My first post ... an ID problem with a sandpiper. I am pretty inexperienced with these small waders. This bird was photographed on the Pacific coast of Mexico, Oaxaca state on Feb 22 My first thoughts ... either Least or Baird's
