Beltzer, that last pick, IMG_1621 crop.jpg, looks like a yellow fronted canary.

(Guess who's got a new bird book!  :biggrin:  )
Great news, my book 'Sniffer' has seen the light of day of Amazon Kindle!

And the middle bird is a Black shouldered Kite..

Your first bird is a puzzler though, it looks like it might be molting into it's summer breeding colours.

''edit''  ha ha wildcoast, you beat me to the draw

I think doves are so common that most people don't give them a second look...... they should! Lots of subtle shades of colours.

Red-eyed dove taking a well deserved goof.

I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy
