Terns of North America: A Photographic Guide–A Book Review

10,000 Birds

Tern lovers rejoice! A new book about the angelic-looking, identification-stumping birds of the oceans, rivers, and marshes has finally been published! And it’s fantastic. Terns are too often considered the baby brothers and sisters of gulls, and if you don’t agree, take a look at the number of books written about gulls (at least four in recent years) and then try to remember the last book you read about terns of North America.

Birds of the Northern Forest – An homage

10,000 Birds

Ever since I was a kid I wanted to learn how to draw, but alas I never made it past the stickman. More precisely I wanted to learn how to draw wildlife. I guess it’s a gift you either have or you don’t. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t in any way mean to belittle the importance of hard work but I do think that a certain amount of that “magical powder” as an ingredient is absolutely essential.

The Snow Partridge

10,000 Birds

eBird calls the Snow Partridge a “stone-colored terrestrial bird of stony hillsides, mountain ridges, and meadows above treeline” – and in fact, it is impressive how well the bird fits in with its surroundings, at least when I saw it at about 4000 meters of altitude at the Balangshan pass. Presumably, the bird I saw was a male given that it has a spur, and the bill is coral-red (females apparently do not have spurs, and the bill is pinkish or greyish-pink, according to the HBW)

What’s in a Name?

10,000 Birds

David Tomlinson The recent announcement by the American Ornithological Society that it intends to replace names of all birds named after people has caused quite a stir here in the UK. There are many who think that the whole idea is ridiculous, while others believe that it is long overdue. Call me old fashioned if you like, but I rather like many of these old names, as they put a bit of colour and interest into birding, especially if you bother to investigate who exactly the birds are named after

Kerkini in Winter

10,000 Birds

Back in July, my fellow 10,000 Birds contributor Dragan wrote a delightful piece about birding Lake Kerkini in spring. I first visited Kerkini and this bird-rich region of northern Greece 15 years ago, and have been returning regularly ever since. While spring is undoubtedly the most rewarding time to visit, I’ve enjoyed several autumn and winter trips, too, made more enjoyable by the fact that the weather is usually much sunnier, and warmer, here than it is at home in the UK.

Birding Heligoland in Late September

10,000 Birds

Volunteering on Heligoland for a month allowed me to get a sense of changing migration patterns in autumn. The first half of September (covered in my previous post ) was very productive, but the second half delivered some even better birding. An example of the changes over this time were the initially large numbers of Whinchats. These birds were omnipresent on the bushes and fence posts on the upper land of the island during the first weeks of my stay.

Birding on Texel in Late October

10,000 Birds

The Dutch Island of Texel is well-known amongst European birders due to the exciting number and quality of birds it attracts during spring and autumn migration times. Although not as exciting as Helgoland, which I covered here recently , Texel is an excellent location in its own right. I spent three full days on Texel in late October, which was just about enough to cover this surprisingly large island.

Necessities aside, what do you carry with you on a field trip?

10,000 Birds

Some years ago, I was doing research of waterbird migrations with a young ornithologist friend of mine. A knowledgeable birder and great company, he was able to forget just about everything. On several occasions, he lost some screws and minor parts of my tripod en route (he couldn’t believe that and even accused me of deliberately hiding the screws), on others, he forgot to take his binoculars with him (“Why does it matter, you’ve brought the scope, haven’t you?”).

Horrible Hybrids

10,000 Birds

As a general rule, birders don’t like hybrids. For a start, they may struggle to identify them, while secondly they can’t even tick them. On BirdTrack, the British equivalent of e-Bird, the list of birds provided does allow for Tufted Duck x Ferruginous Duck to be recorded, but not Tufted Duck x Pochard. However, that’s exactly what I guessed the duck swimming in front of me had to be.

May I ask, what animal does this eye belong to?

Reddit Animals

​ I've seen this picture multiple times on social media, and in my impression, there's no animal whose eyes look like this, no pupil, veins on the surface. I can't find the original source or some more information. So, is it possible for an animal's eyes to look like this? Or could it be caused by a disease? Thanks a lot.
