Subreddit rules:

  1. Follow Ethical Birding Behavior. Follow ethical birding & bird photography behaviors as outlined by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Audubon Society (see pinned post).

  2. No Human Contact With Birds. Exceptions for researchers who are banding birds, or licensed wildlife rehabilitators (proof must be submitted to mods through modmail before posting)

  3. Birding Content Only. No “birds aren’t real” posts, and all posts must be directly related to wild birds or the hobby of birding.

  4. No Fledgling/Injured Bird Questions. Baby birds without feathers should be returned to the nest. Young, feathered fledglings outside the nest are normal and common, and may not be able to fly well yet – they should generally be left alone. If you believe the bird is injured or needs human intervention, contact a local wildlife rehabilitator (http://ahnow.org/). If you are unable to contact a wildlife rehabilitator, please go to r/WildlifeRehab for further advice.

  5. Original Content Only. Any photos must have been taken by the person posting them. Articles can be posted for discussion, however the poster must also comment with their perspective on the article.

  6. Add Context to Photos. Your post should include the common name of the bird, the location, and date – either in the title or a comment. We love seeing interesting facts or observations too!

  7. No Self-promotion or Advertising. Artwork of wild birds is allowed. Watermarks are allowed. One link in a comment to your social media page is allowed. No links to sales sites. Make sure your contributions are about birding and engaging with this community, not promoting yourself. Links to articles should also include some discussion about the article.

Need help identifying

Johannesburg, South Africa. I think these are some sort of Pochard, but I'm not sure. Looks almost like a female red-crested, but the eyes and bill aren't right.

Another beautiful yellow House Finch. Last week, I was told that their color varies by diet; they are not always red.

The difference camouflage makes (my first Cardinal)

I’ve been diving a little too deep into bird photography since the beginning of the year and I finally captured video of my first female Cardinal. And gee dang it was she gorgeous.

Give me a follow on instagram if you want (no pressure)@samsbirdstore

Looking for an Asian Bird with yellow

I want to draw a bird found in Asia, preferably China, or Japan or Korea or around there please. I want to draw something with yellow feathers. What bird is beautiful or unique or strange in that area? What is it called?

Speckled feathers

Hello,

We found some unique feathers in our woods (southeastern PA) and I was wondering if anyone could help identify. They look similar to a guinnea fowl or maybe a bread of chicken that may have been stolen by a fox or other predator in the area as we are rural and a lot of people keep birds or if there are any native birds with this patterning. Thank you!

Bird I saw. Don’t know what kind. help

okay so background. I’m in California , me and husband are going towards San Jose taking old watsonville, all of the sudden this bird flies and lands right in front of the car ( we were a bits away and we swerved around it ) we managed to catch a glimpse of it and we have never seen it. I don’t have a picture but i tried drawing it, if anyone can help ID this bird, much appreciated! Info: bird was pretty big about goose sized dark brown/black colored the beak stood out the most, it was yellow with a little flap on it
