    Rough-legged Hawk (Dark Morph)

    Thank you for your assistance!
  2. Hi all, I just got back from a good morning of birding at Sauvie Island off the Columbia River in Multnomah County, Oregon (just outside of Portland). Saw this hawk while leaving and stopped for some photos. I believe that it is a rough-legged hawk (dark morph) based on its size and bill shape/size. Thoughts? Thanks, Duke
  3. Hi all, I just took a birding lunch break at the pull out at 122nd Ave. and NE Marine Drive in Portland, Oregon overlooking the Columbia River. I believe that I identified a juvenile Iceland Gull. See the attached photo (bird on left). I would appreciate any comments or feedback. Thanks, Duke

    1st Winter White-Throated Sparrow?

    I'm seeing the swamp sparrow now, particularly the rufous wings with no white markings. Thank you!
  5. Hi all, I was hiking/birding at the Sandy River Delta this morning in Multnomah County, Oregon. I was unable to ID a sparrow that I saw toward the end of our hike. Luckily, I was able to take some good photos and I have since spent some quality time with my Sibley's. I believe that I have identified the bird as a 1st Winter white-throated sparrow, but I still have some doubts. Thoughts? Thanks, Duke
  6. Hi all, Had some good looks at this sparrow while hiking around Swiftcurrent Lake. Was in group of about 6-8 birds in open area near lake's edge. I thought that they might be Brewer's Sparrows. Photo of a juvenile? And thoughts greatly appreciated. Thanks, Duke

    Spruce Grouse in Glacier National Park

    Posting photos. Thanks for heads up.
  8. Hi all, Saw a group of grouses while hiking the Swift Current Nature Trail on August 8th. The group was feeding near the side of the trail. Bird in photos appeared to be the mother of the other smaller birds. I believe that they were spruce grouses. Thoughts? Thanks, Duke PS--have other photos of young birds, but could not share due to file size limitations. Will post to eBird.

  10. Hi all, Thanks for the feedback. I posted quite a few photos on eBird. Also higher resolution. Check them out here: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S37513184 The birds stayed in close proximity for several minutes. Very surprising. It was also fairly windy, which seemed to make it hard for the hawk to keep its balance. Cheers, Duke
  11. Hi all, I had some good looks at a hawk this morning at Rocky Mountain Arsenal NWR outside of Denver. I believe it is a Swainson's Hawk. Any thoughts on whether this ID is correct? Thanks, Duke
  12. Hi all, My first post to the forum. Saw this bird at Pilot Butte park in Bend, Oregon. I believe it's a western wood-pewee, but I've waivered between some other flycatchers. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I was thinking of this the whole drive back from Bend (and a couple other ones that I've resolved) and would love to get some closure. Thanks, Duke
