Jochen: Some field marks I consider good for hornemanni:- the head looks quite uniform, with just a slight mark around the ear coverts- the stripes at the side of the breast/belly are very thin and sharp, as if drawn with a very sharp pencil- the greatest undertail [....]


2019-12-03. to photo # 06320036702 (Common Redpoll)

Олег Белялов: What signs of hornemanni are present in this photo? Bill? Color?

Марина Мерц: Я написала о своих сомнениях.Спасибо,Алдияр,перенесу.


2019-11-24. to photo # 06320035701 (Upland Buzzard)

Алдияр Сапарбаев: Марина, у вас определение птицы некорректно указано.
По всей видимости это мохноногий курганник.

Марина Мерц: Спасибо,Наташа!)

Наталья Ким: Классный трофей, Марина!


2019-11-24. to photo # 06320035701 (Upland Buzzard)

Марина Мерц: Сомневаюсь в определении,может быть сибирский зимняк?


2019-11-24. to photo # 06320035701 (Upland Buzzard)

Ihsan Eroglu: Buteo hemilasius ??


2019-11-15. to photo # 06320034901 (Oriental Turtle Dove)

Марина Мерц: Возможно у нее что-то со здоровьем,долго сидела на земле не двигаясь и тяжело дышала.


2019-11-15. to photo # 06320034901 (Oriental Turtle Dove)

Геннадий Дякин: Еще очень поздняя встреча этого вида

Наталья Ким: Поздравляю с лайфером! Рада, что Вы его встретили!


2019-11-04. to photo # 06320033301 (Common Sparrowhawk)

Сергей Чикин: Если, толь, у этого самца половой диморфизм не выражен, тогда ржавчатый цвет присутствует...


2019-11-04. to photo # 06320033301 (Common Sparrowhawk)

Сергей Чикин: Не согласен, по перепелятнику у меня предостаточно наблюдений. Не смотря на то, что он вариабельный вид, всё-таки у самца серовато-сизоватого [....]


2019-11-03. to photo # 06320033301 (Common Sparrowhawk)

Марина Мерц: Птицу видела со спины,не удалось рассмотреть,быстро улетела. Благодарю,Аскар!


2019-11-03. to photo # 06320033301 (Common Sparrowhawk)

Аскар Исабеков: Сергей, с точностью до наоборот. Рыжий перед - это самец.


2019-11-03. to photo # 06320033301 (Common Sparrowhawk)

Сергей Чикин: Ели не ошибаюсь, то у самца перепелятника, светлые, тона передней части тела с серовато-сизоватыми поперечными полосами... А тут ржавчато-рыжие [....]


2019-11-02. to photo # 06320033301 (Common Sparrowhawk)

Аскар Исабеков: это самец перепелятника
