hello my wife took these photos today, do you know what bird it is? the photo was taken at the harbour of the river Tyne in the UK.
i didn't realise this is a US message board until after i had signed up!
help identifying bird please
the beak doesn't seem to be the right shape though.
we think it could be a grasshopper warbler.
we are in it's summer range and the terrain where the photo was taken is thick rough grass which is it's habitat.
this is a photo of the area where the photo was taken:
Its simple to identify the bird since I have a bird book which I brought from the book store. I have memorized quarter of the birds but the rest is hard to memorize. Other than that if I get confused then I use google to search by adding descriptions.
