Identity - new feature 

This blog is dedicated for bird identification.
As we all know some species are very difficult to tell apart from another even when the bird is in the hand (during ringing). This blog is not based on generic description but on photographs taken in the wild. Identification is based on the features seen on the photograph. In some cases we cannot be sure on the species and we will say why.
You are also welcome to write Your own comments - if You agree or disagree with the reasons given. All identification reasoning by Kari Raulos.
We hope that this blog will be a learning experience and a help for You in learning to identify the birds in the wild.
The photos are cropped for best possible ease in identification.
The texts will be in Finnish only in the beginning.
