  1. Past hour
  2. But this is Whatbird, not Whatshadow!!! Nice photo, though. I really like it.
  3. poss painted bunting and a warbler

    Please confirm Painted Bunting female for the two green photos. The third I think is likely an Orange-crowned warbler but also wondered about Tenessee warbler. Unfortunately I only got one shot before my favourite Vermillion chased him away. https://imgur.com/XOIK0ma https://imgur.com/mEoa42y https://imgur.com/JYQeAgj

    None of those.
  6. Let the fun begin!

    Was this taken in Roswell, New Mexico??? I'm drawing a blank...American Crow? Kingfisher? Rock Pigeon? Did you crop the bill on propose? I have to sign off for tonight.
  7. willets maybe today Nayarit Mexico

    All I can think of is a Willet, yet they look odd for that. Maybe just cause they are hunched up? https://imgur.com/RsOiN67 https://imgur.com/7heaoan https://imgur.com/kwlHYjL https://imgur.com/zZEvC4X
  8. Seen from across a river, today in Lo de Marcos, west coast of Mexico. I think because of the yellow beak that it is an immature Black Hawk. May be too poor a photo but any help is appreciated. https://imgur.com/gREYuJ4 https://imgur.com/tdy2VWl
  9. California 2017 Whatbird Big Year

    Does he have any kind of phone? It's still possible to spread the word the old fashioned way...verbally. Hopefully it will be more cooperative than it(?) was in OC and stay for a second day. Good luck to you both!

    Yeah, kind of sucks the one person who doesn't have a smart phone refound it... I've told him he needs to get a smartphone before.
  11. Today

    Anyone want to guess?
  13. Sandhill Cranes?

    I think so too. Their early ancestors likely were. As for the latest version: "A crane fossil found in Nebraska from the Pliocene period (5.3-2.6 million years ago) may be structurally identical to the modern Sandhill Crane, possibly making it one of the oldest known bird species still surviving!" https://www.savingcranes.org/species-field-guide/sandhill-crane/ They (Greater SACR) recently expanded their breeding range north to our area and now regularly nest on our property so I have been lucky enough to hear them many, many times - and had all sorts of great close views as they have become more habituated. Now they forage right in front of our house sometimes! And even when you can't see them you can hear them a mile away under the right conditions. Needless to say, one of my favourite birds.
  14. Sandhill Cranes?

    I hope so too!
  15. Warbler and oriole

    I guess it could be...

  18. Share your best photo of the day!

    I really like this picture. Friends together doing what they like to do. What's better than that? I'd like it more if I could.
  19. Dark Rough-legs would have brighter primaries and secondaries with less distinct barring. Also, the tail pattern doesn't fit Rough-leg. Any Roughie with distinct barring should have one broad subterminal black band and then a bunch of narrow black and white bands. That broad distal white band doesn't fit.
  20. Please confirm zone tailed hawk

    What about Dark-phase Rough-legged?
  21. California 2017 Whatbird Big Year

    well i did go down there. and if i’d gone straight to Caribe park like i planned, then i would have got there about the same time as the guy who refound it. but noooo, i decided after the negative reports that i would go fool around Fiesta Island and look for the short-eared owls while i waited for OTHERS to refind it. and of course i also assumed they would post promptly if they did. and so i made yet another bad decision! and also realized i am a lazy birder! never found the owls, either. had to leave before dusk but tomorrow i am off so i hope to try again.
  22. Another Need I.D. Help

    I appreciate all the expert comments. This site is a great resource.
  23. Broad-winged would have fewer fingers on the wingtips, and should be out of the country by now.
  24. Flycatcher or vireo

    YES! Please don't remove the photos, as it SUCKS!
  25. Another Need I.D. Help

    Fair enough -- I'm guessing he has American Woodcocks. They look similar enough not to notice the differences if you're not a birder. And instead of finding a photo, he found the nearest thing he could online.
  26. Sandhill Cranes?

    A friend of mine says they sound like they are from the dinosaur age.
  27. Yellow-rumped Warbler

    AKA Butter butts
