http://www.birds.cornell.edu/clementsche...it will give every known bird down to sub-species with lots of other details but only shows American Common names. There are other similar lists provided by different authorities and they do have slight taxonomic variations as no-one ever agrees 100% with everyone else! As for Common names - they are a minefield! At Project Noah we are using the Scientific name as the main identifier as they are international.
Thank you Malcolm, i'm not familiar with Clements? because i have US bird books and of course we're the center of the universe but will expand my horizons and see about the download for Excel ~ is it going to give me every bird in the world ? birding is a world of learning to be sure.
The US Red Crossbill is the same Genus and species as this and the US White-winged Crossbill is the same Genus and species as our Two-barred Crossbill! So only the Common names are different. You can check sub-species variations on the Clements checklist v6.7, it is downloadable in excel format.
love their Spanish name...Piquituerto ~ i wonder if they're the same Genus-species as the US varieties ? still they're a fun bird to hang out with at the pool in Spain:)
I've only been there on a couple of occasions, first a 2-night stop, then a 1 night stop. Each time I only saw a handful at the swimming pool where they frequently came to drink and odd ones or twos scattered through the woods, but we only explored a small part of these.
kewl species to be sure ~ are they in a large colony or smaller flocks ?
Thank you all.
Fantastic pictures Malcolm!
waw !!!! very nice shots Malcolm ! I 'm jealous , here the temperature is still cold and I am excited that the weather is warmer to get out more often to take pictures. I would make large poster size prints with it, if I were you. Congratulations Malcolm !!!
Thanks, I have added the rest of the pictures now.
