Mystery Bird of November

Mystery Bird of November – by Sergiu Bacioiu on Flickr

What amazing color! Looks like a band on the right leg, so someone must be able to identify this beauty. Great photography Sergiu.

OK, someone, tell us who he is…

There are so many excellent photos of UNIDENTIFIED beautiful birds available on the Internet. This is the next in a series of Monthly Mystery Birds from around the world. This series seeks to tap the knowledge of people who recognize these beauties, and to spread that knowledge to the rest of us. There’s something satisfying about knowing the names of birds. They become more familiar to us and seem more like friends when we know what to call them. Sort of like, “Oh, there’s Brad Pitt”, rather than, “Oh, there’s some guy on the street.”

After some expert supplies the name of our Mystery Bird, we’ll add some details about just who that bird is and where it’s from.

If you recognize this bird, please respond in the Comments Section below, and help to enlighten our readers.

If you have any views on this, or experiences of your own you’d like to share, We’d love to hear from you – please leave a comment below.

      Hey Jay – Thank you very much for identifying yet another of our Mystery Birds. Since your website,, is mostly about fly fishing, you make me wonder how, and when, you got your extensive knowledge of birds from around the world.

      I invite you submit a guest post on about yourself and your website. We’d love to learn more about you and your outdoor adventures. Please consider this, and again, thank you for helping us all learn about all these wonderful birds from all over the world.
