ID help


Edited: Aug 11

Hi all,

These images of gull and shrike from winter 2016 season. need assistance to identify them please.







The shrike is a juvenile 'Isabelline', probably Turkestan. It would help to know what time of the year the image was taken to support this - Sep/Oct would favour Turkestan, Dec-Feb Daurian.


I'm going to pass on the gull, however.

Hi Mark,


The shrike was in December, so it seems like a Daurian/Isabelline juvenile. Thanks a lot.


Anybody on the Gull please ...



The gull can not be identified beyond Larus sp.

We call them 'Large white-headed gulls' here in the UAE See the online downloadable Checklist for the possible species involved
