Mystery bird: June 2019

Thank you for all your entries. This time, we selected a low angle shot from a wader or shorebird (or not?). At least it looks like a bird somehow connected to water. But how big is it? And how may it`s bill look like? Feel free to determine the species. Hints towards it`s age or plumage are welcome.

We are back online

After quite some months of silence and absence on the Word Wide Web, we are now happy to welcome you on our new and entirely redesigned and restructured web presence. We are looking forward to step by step increasing the services of the IOU to all you ornithologists and in specific our members.
