Yes!! They are related species. :thumbs:

The Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) is a small, North American songbird, a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. It is the state bird of both Maine and Massachusetts in the United States, and the provincial bird of New Brunswick in Canada. It is notable for its capacity to lower its body temperature during cold winter nights, its good spatial memory to relocate the caches where it stores food, and its boldness near humans (they can feed from the hand).

For me bird in first photo also looks like Willow tit. Black-capped chickadee has intense buff color on sides. But if this photo is from North America, then of course Willow tit is unreliable variant.

Another photo of a black-capped chickadee. I know mine at my feeders don't have much coloring on their sides like the other photo I posted. There are more than 2 types of chickadee in the US, too.

Can anyone identify it, please?
Hello Jo! :)

I think it is a young Steppe Eagle (Aquila nipalensis).

this is not an eagle for sure, perhaps a falcon or smaller species?

I suspect it is a hawk, probably a buteo. Red-tailed hawks seem to be the mostly likely. But keep your eyes peeled for more sightings, maybe you will see a detail that will prove it one way or another.

NancyM & alice44, thanks for you answers. Yea, it does look very similar to Red-tailed Hawk from that website you gave me.

I saw one of them- I think its one of them- today as I was about to write this post.

He/she refused to fully turn to the camera.

[Edit] Here we go.

right in the beginning there is a chiffchaff singing a little further from the nest. then the eaglets both talk a little. then the unknown bird begins and sings for a long time... and again eaglets make some very drowsy squeaks, and some louder, too. sometimes also a golden oriole sings and there are some other voices, too, but they are much further away than this mystery bird.


i have a hunch that the unknown voice might belong to a blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla). :dunno:
(i hope it is not as trivial as the chaffinch was in the summer... :blush: :mrgreen: )

this question - answer pair i copied from the Latvian WTE 2014 -topic. the voice sample was recorded on June 24th 2014 at Lake Lubāns in Latvia.

which birds are? :help:
this is an old question already which raised some discussion on this thread but i don't think it got a full and/or definite answers yet. :puzzled:
andu didn't write where these pictures were taken and that is very important to know, like vainamoinen and chimega wrote in their answers. as i am a Finn i naturally saw in these pictures two birds which are common in Finland (and i believe also in Estonia). i think that the upper bird is willow tit (Poecile montanus, formely know as Parus montanus) like vainamoinen wrote. another possibility is marsh tit (Poecile palustris, formerly Parus palustris). these two look so much alike that one should hear the voice to be sure of the identification. - i think that the question about these two has been discussed on the bird feeder topic every winter. :laugh:
voices of the willow tit:
http://www.xeno-canto.org/explore?query ... e+montanus
voices of the marsh tit:
http://www.xeno-canto.org/explore?query ... +palustris

i think that the second bird is a yellow hammer (Emberiza citrinella). - but if these birds were photographed somewhere else than in Northern Europe then i'm not sure at all what they are!

Thank you! That bird is beautiful! :rolleyes:
But it was heartbroken to look at the broken wing :cry: and also it can not walk on the ground, and it was very afraid :shock:
