I have finished uploading photos to my new SmugMug photo gallery: "The Birds of Bowra".
From the entry page click on the "Nature" icon then click on the "The Birds
of Bowra" icon.
Then have fun flicking through the 258 photos of over 100 species.

I have made my identifications in most cases based on my own experience and information resources. In many cases I have attempted to describe the sex and age of the particular bird but I am often not 100% sure. In those cases I have added a (?). Any incorrect identifications are my fault alone and if any one thinks I am wrong in any case or would like to have a go where I haven't been game I would like to hear those opinions and reasons.

Of particular identification concern is the alleged Brown Goshawk (page 15 photo 73). I have added notes to the caption explaining my reasons for make that identification but I would be happy to receive comments with back-up evidence from anyone who believes it is not a Brown Goshawk. I have already received credible comments from one person who believes it is a Collared Sparrowhawk but I have had to say I am not yet dissuaded from my opinion. I am still considering this identification, though. I must say at this point that I am not being deliberately stubborn or pig-headed with this one. It is simply that I am being cautious as I have a personal belief that there is a lot of mis-identifying of these two species. Of course, that may simply be because I am not confident in my own ability. Or that I want it to be a Brown Goshawk to build up my Bowra Bird list; I believe I have recorded 17 of the 18 Hawks, Eagles & Falcons listed so far for Bowra.........if I include Brown Goshawk.

Some of you might also like to have a go at identifying the two species of Corvids in the gallery on page 15.
That could be interesting.
