Also saw several through binoculars from the hotel window, which overlooked the Amstel River -- especially Eurasian Coots and Great Crested Grebes.
Other finds: Common Ravens, Great Cormorants and Shags, Gray Herons (hanging out with the residents at the Amsterdam Zoo), Rose-ringed Parakeets (Amsterdam's equivalent of our Monk Parakeets, I suspect) and Eurasian Magpies and Eurasian Blackbirds.
IDing new birds with a field guide was a challenge at times -- holler if any of the sightings seem dubious!
I did not include the statuesque eagle on my eBird list of 13 species.
If you are going to Amsterdam and would like some birding tips, I can share some with you that Taco at Flevo Bird-watching graciously provided.
