RSPB Badge Game


#121

I hadn’t seen them until this thread, info is all here:


#122

Exotic bird edition.


#123

That is not official RSPB merchandise, I’m afraid. I’ve flagged it for the mods.

(No idea on the bird)


#124

Roots and fruits on GWR for me.


#125

I’d say it’s a something green magpie.

(Enjoy your day at the zoo, btw)


#126

Javan Green Magpie :+1:


#127

:grimacing:


#128

I only ever see them at garden centres and RSPB sites. Usually get v. excited when I see a box at the till. @badmanreturns produced a pound coin for me to buy one on Saturday after some frantic and unsuccessful pocket rummaging.


#129

Fill yer bank holiday boots. :+1:


#130

Thought “that looks like a Jay, but not quite like a Jay” and turns out I’m right about that. Never seen one of those bad boys.


#131

Redyellowbluejay?


#132

Based on the reddish wings - redwing?


#133

Yesss there was a stall outside the botanic gardens. Got a couple of goodies.


#134

Seems as good a thread as any. Saw a nest of birdies today. Looked like wagtails but with yellow bums. What were they? (No, wasn’t a yellow wagtail, already googled that)


#135

Had a look on the NT place I just visited but nothing…


#136

grey wagtail then, which is also yellow. Wagtails are easy to spot or exclude: they wag their tails, all the time.


#137


#138

Greenfinch?


#139

Close… Loads of these as well as redwings this/last winter.


#140

It looks like a finch but i don’t recognise it. Hawfinch (process of elimination)?
