luiselye Fumaria blanca
Fumaria blanca commented on by luiselye Catarroja, Comunitat Valenciana, Spain8 years ago

Hola Eulalia! Creo que la fumaria en las fotos no es una agraria, pero una capreolata. La Fumaria agraria es mas rosa, solo la capreolata tiene este tono así tan blanco...

luiselye Southern Plains Gray Langur
Southern Plains Gray Langur commented on by luiselye Tamil Nadu, India9 years ago

I believe my ID suggestion is wrong and Dan is right... It seems a Southern Plains Gray Langur. The pyramidal shape of the head, the black face and the eyebrows seem to indicate that...

luiselye Black Norwegian Forest Cat: Skogkatt
Black Norwegian Forest Cat: Skogkatt commented on by luiselye Lisbon, Lisboa, Portugal9 years ago

This one is my big pal, but he has travelled too much for his own taste, poor fellow! The Skogkatts are quite funny and intelligent, and they always seem to find the most incongruous positions to have a nap…

luiselye Unknown spotting
Unknown spotting commented on by luiselye Pennsylvania, USA9 years ago

I agree with LauraMaria, this could be a baby Rook (Corvus frugilegus). It definitely would help to know where the picture was taken… What happened to this little fellow?

luiselye Black Crow
Black Crow commented on by luiselye Gawler, South Australia, Australia9 years ago

This is a tough one… I don't know much about Australasian Crows, but by the bird's attitude and apparent size, I believe it is a Little Crow (Corvus bennetti), and not a Torresian Crow (Corvus orru) nor a Australian Raven (Corvus coronoides)…

Thanks Laura Maria! And I totally agree, Stefan, this is a very nice photo. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to see the new ones…

The very dark back and the yellow legs suggest a Lesser Black-backed Gull (subspecies fuscus fuscus)…

luiselye Glossy Ibis
Glossy Ibis commented on by luiselye Lisboa, Portugal9 years ago

Hi animaisfotos, I'm bothering you again with identification issues! The Sacred Ibis (Threskiornis aethiopicus) is all black and white. You can check it out here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_Ibis.... This is definitelly a Glossy Ibis.
This must have been a nice sighting :)

luiselye Black-winged Kite
Black-winged Kite commented on by luiselye Lisboa, Portugal9 years ago

I've been watching these magnificent birds of prey for some thirty years now and it's always a pleasure to see them. They are very beautiful. This photo is an excellent one... animaisfotos, I like your photos very much. I would love to draw or paint from some of them :)

Black-winged Kite commented on by luiselye Lisboa, Portugal9 years ago

I'm sorry to say that this is not an Australian Black-shouldered Kite (Elanus axillaris), but rather a European Black-winged Kite (Elanus caeruleus) which is endemmic to the Iberian Peninsula... They are somewhat rare now but still very present in Portugal and Spain (where its Australian cousin never appears) :)
