  1. Would be a bummer if that egg accidentally fell out of the nest.
  2. Both look good for Cooper's to me.
  3. That is a nice male Yellow Warbler.
  4. Looks good for American Crows. Raven would have heavier bill and shaggier feathers under the neck.
  5. Looks more like a Violet-green Swallow to me.
  6. Spotted Sandpiper.
  7. Wow, thanks! I've never even heard of that one before. Any recommendations for a good reptile field guide for the Southwest?
  8. That's what I thought it was, but the pattern/coloration was much different than the Speckleds I find down here in San Diego county's Pine Creek drainage in Pine Valley. My seven year old daughter spotted it near the end of a tough three mile hike, stepped out of it's way, and said "Daddy, rattlesnake!" I'm proud of her. Is there a more specific name for the Sidewinder, or is that it? That one was super tiny, maybe 6-8 inches long.
  9. I'm liking this better for a female Northern Harrier. I think the angle is obscuring the white rump. At any rate, Swainson's would be a rarity at that coastal location, even during migration.
  10. A juvenile something. Very tiny. Struck me as skink like, but maybe the tail wasn't long enough for that. Seen near Newberry Springs, California.
  11. I know, not an insect, but we don't have a category for this one. Found near Newberry Springs California.
  12. Found near Newberry Springs in Southern California. Desert habitat, maybe 3,500 foot elevation. First one was tiny, hiding under the cover of a big rock. Second one was out in the open, curled up in the early morning.
  13. That's what I'd call it.
  14. And since you asked, it is a female.
  15. You know, us fishermen, we like to brag about our catch. I'll bet he was trying to tell everyone that it weighed 10 pounds.
