Beautiful shot, Click. How can you tell it's a "green" one? (just curious)
Dead easy. Use "Seek". Here is a screen shot from my iPhone of Click's image on my laptop screen analysed by Seek. ;)

Common whitethroat or greater whitethroat (Sylvia communis) "Törnsångare " in Swedish

I think this lens (EF 600mm f/4 III) is very good for bird-images. I'll try the 1,4 extender as well. The images turn out rather well I think. Like they did on my previous RF 100-500 as well, but I like the extra stop.

You’ve become a real expert identifying a Whitethroat!

Great shot, Dockland - that deep blue color is lovely, and the eyes are glowing!

Thank you so much.
You guys (and perhaps gals) warmly welcomed me to this section of the forum and, well, now I'm hooked :) You keep inspiring me a lot. Had you in my mind out there in the fields this evening.

*cough* yes, I wish there were an... app or something for that *cough cough* :giggle:

Seriously, the Seek app is fantastic. It identified this Whitethroat in matter of seconds and now I know this bird next time I see it. Great help for a really really beginner. So much fun! It's almost like learning a new language

I found this for you:

Ringing of birds in Sweden is administered by the Bird Ringing Centre at the Museum of Natural History, Stockholm. Information about recoveries of ringed birds is very valuable, and the Bird Ringing Centre has further instructions on how to report your findings on this web site.

You can do something similar for whole Europe here at "EURING". (English)
In Bavaria there is a local page, too. Provided by the LBV here. (German)
