This photo was posted on a bird ID forum I participate in.


It's been a week and no one has come up with an ID on this one.

Do you know what it is?

Thanks: Jerry

Not a great KISKADEE
by: Anonymous

This is 100% a sooty-capped bush tanager, endemic to central america. Great kiskadees are bigger in size and blacked-capped chickadees are different colors.

Unknown Bird
by: Judy-Seattle

Jerry, did they say where they took the picture of this bird? Knowing the locale will help to identify it. I looked up the Greater Kissadee on the Web. They are located in Mexico. Their color pattern looks a lot like this bird, but their beaks seem much larger. I'll post a photo of a Greater Kissadee for the comparison.

This bird appears to be a Carolina Chickadee or a black capped chickadee. Just a wild guess as I looked it up in the National Audubon Society book. I am not a pro, just an interested bird watcher. Mavmacaw
