    Bendire's or curved bill Thrasher

    Hello, skoenlaper, you have the comparable of the Bendires thrasher and the Curve-bill thrasher being the Bendires straighter bill but still curved. The color of eyes on the Curve-bill eyes are a pale orange whereas the Bendire’s are usually yellow. My info came from Peterson Field Guide on page 272.

    Hummingbird help

    Hello, pinelaker, At first I thought the hummingbird was a Rufus but looking through my books on hummingbirds I could see it was a female Anna’s. It was the metallic green above (which a lot do have) but has a grayish/tiny amount of buff color. I didn’t see any reddish spotting on the throat. I did see over the eye a pale line.

    Hawk 9 Identification please

    Hello, reupurtbones, your picture really helped.I agree with an adult Cooper’s hawk. It’s in the Accititers family. The Sharp-shinned hawk is as well. The Cooper’s hawk has a larger head and a longer,rounded tail compared to the Sharp-shinned hawk. They both hunt in a variety of woodlands. The Cooper’s hawk will also perch on telephone poles whereas the Sharpie doesn’t.

    Hawk 8 Identification please

    Hello,reupurtbones, Welcome to Whatbird! I agree with Red-trail hawk. The way the sun is glareing on the side and on the side of the breast and no head shots I’m relying on the back shoulder of the wings. It is showing the wings being broad and somewhat rounded. It has a short rufous tail.

    Hawk 6 Identification please

    Hello,reupurtbones, Welcome to Whatbird! I agree with the physical attributes for the SY Cooper’s hawk. I found interesting is the fact they are among the bird world’s most skillful fliers. They are common woodland hawks that tear through cluttered tree canopies in high speed pursuit of other birds. It hunts by stealth. I found the info. Through, wwwaudubon.org. and www.allaboutbirds.org. However, if you already know all about their habits of skillful hunting and their territories.
