    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Biology Stack Exchange. For species ID questions, it is often helpful to include some information on where and when the animal was found: for birds, information on the location (i.e., country / state / province) and local environment (coastal, forested, urban, etc) would be especially helpful. $\endgroup$
