I took a birding class a few years ago... I think this is what they call an LBB (little brown bird)
Thanks. I appreciate your input.
Is this bird found in India, or somewhere else?
This was in my backyard park of sort near my home in Delhi, India. This park is called Swaran Jayanti Park. It's home to many species of birds, but unfortunately my knowledge of their names is rather limited. I have seen egrets, kingfishers, parrots, and some unknown birds.
Can you please help me with the name of this beautiful bird I shot with the same camera lens combo? Don't strain yourself too much.
Pretty sure now it's an Indian Grackle (google it for images). I asked about the location because the body and eye look so much like our black-and-bronze Common Grackle (USA), but the colors aren't right... so if you saw it over here, I figured it might be an interesting variant. For comparison, here's our Common Grackle at one of our feeders.
Ok, so common grackle, but a different colour. Interesting. Can you tell me the name of the other bird?
Please don't bother. I found it: it's yellow-footed green pigeon.
Just to be clear, an Indian Grackle (which makes sense), but your Indian species has different coloration than ours.
yikes...now THAT'S a bird !!! I love it.
Birding just kills me. I have gone on several birding seminar walks with some of the top birders in California. We have a weekend place in a spectacular area that sees on the order of 240 species per year - slough, ocean, woodlands all in this very small area, so we see a lot of birders and at least one convention of birders every year. I go out with them once in a while and I'm great at ID'ing after they tell me what to look for...the next day...DAMN...they are all birds. I can tell Gulls from Pelicans and that's it...and I can never see the Owls in the trees...so I just look at "birds" and enjoy them as I see them ... nice pic, love it...LYB (yes, little yellow Bird)
