  3. Red Tailed Hawk?

    Is this a red tailed hawk or??? Shot in the Sacramento River Delta late October this year.
  4. Behavior help as well as ID

    Why didn't i think of that?
  5. Behavior help as well as ID

    One of the initial suggestions I got when I originally shot it was shaking water off, but the bird didn't come out of the water. It had been standing on the beach with a number of other gulls for at least a few minutes.
  6. Behavior help as well as ID

    Not real sharp, but doesn't appear to be a problem with the right eye.
  7. Bald Eagle in the Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge in Nevada, January 2017
  8. Shot these at Agamon Hula Lake in Northern Israel in December 2015.
  9. Behavior help as well as ID

    It had taken off from a pack of gulls standing on the beach, but it was flying by itself.
  10. Shot this gull at Morro Bay in May of 2015 and I think it's a Glacous-Winged Gull, but the big question is why is it's head twisted 180 degrees? No one has been able to give me an answer (other than seagull exorcism). The frame before and the frame after, the head is normal...
  11. ID Help - Large Black Bird in Utah

    Thanks Charlie! If you google Great Blue Heron, most of what comes up is whitish grey birds with yellowish beaks and that's a big part of what had me confused. Thanks for the kind words about the photos. I love the first one too, but it's just a case of capturing what nature presents!
  12. ID Help - Large Black Bird in Utah

    Thank you! I had looked at a number of great blue heron images and most of them looked nothing like this one.
  13. Shot this bird at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge near Brigham City, Utah the first week of October this year. Kind of looks like a raven to me, but I can't find a single image of a raven in flight with legs sticking out past the tail.
