I did these for a bird quiz and thought it might be a bit of fun. Nothing too difficult! I'll stick up the full pictures at some point.
No interactions present.
No idea on this one!

Perhaps a juvenile?
Agreed as youngster - adults have dark red eyes
Wrong species, I am afraid! Funny, because I did not think this one would cause any problems...
My Flickr photos...
Put us out of our misery please.

I'll edit and stick the full bird up tomorrow, in case anyone else fancies another go. It should be familiar...
Thanks...I have added the larger picture. Surprising how difficult it can be, when you only see the one part in isolation!
A Treecreeper, you fooled us all and you are right a bit of fun, thanks.
Feel free to add the ID! ;)
As we all got it wrong I think you deserve that right, it was a tough one though.
I was sure it was a Dunnock! I thought Treecreepers had a white stripe above the eye?

You are right, Janet, and that is what you can see here, but I agree that it is not very bright on this bird. At distance, I suspect it would be more obvious.
...and so obvious when you see the whole picture!
I found it very easy to fit what could be seen to the suggestions that had been made - first Dunnock, then Song Thrush. Treecreeper didn't even come to mind!
Yes, I am sure that I would have been the same, If I had not known the answer!
All we need now is for David to agree and it will cease to appear on the carousel under Dunnock! ;)
Sorry for the delay....just in from work!
Maybe we should post a picture of a Dunnock eye to see how different the pictures are.
A salutory lesson of the difficulties of identifying from single photos.....
If a photo shows enough different features, or a single feature that is 100% diagnostic, then there is not usually a problem with an ID based on that photo.
The problem comes when you can't see the features that are usually used for the ID properly and have to base an ID on less obvious features!
Thanks, David, for agreeing! I have added another 'Who am I?'!
