  1. Thanks so much! Do you know if any of the ones I mentioned are not countable by UK standards?
  2. Hi all, I'm on vacation in London and today I birded in St James, Green and Hyde Park. A few birds I saw that I wasn't sure are countable: Ring-necked Parakeet, Fulvous Whistling Duck, Ruddy Shelduck, Bar-headed Goose, Egyptian Goose. Thanks. Now for the confirmations (and let me know if any of these are not countable too!): 1. European Robin 2. Black-headed Gull 3. Blue Tit 4. Great-crested Grebe 5. Ross's Goose 6. Little Grebe 7. Blackbird, female 8. Greylag Goose 9. Great Cormorant 10. Shelduck
  3. Yellow sac spider?

    The yellow sac spider is listed as NYS only poisonous spider. Not deadly but causing a necrotic bite.
  4. Okay, I obviously don't know my damselflies. Can any of these 3 be ID'd? 1. 2. 3.
  5. Wait, #2 has the green wings? Blue-tipped Dancer looks more like #3?
  6. Oh wow, well there was a LOT of egg depositing going on that day!
  7. Pine Warbler?

    Oh, okay. Thanks. Not new either way but Yellow would be a new yard bird.
  8. 1. Dragonfly 2. Damselfly, I think And no ID needed, but why do damselfies do this?
  9. Yellow sac spider?

    Near Albany, NY. Above my shower for a week before I realized it may be poisonous.
  10. Pine Warbler?

    Yesterday near Albany, NY. I'm pretty sure but just wanted to double check. Sorry for the terrible pic through my dirty window.
  11. I was on my way from southern Idaho to the SLC airport, so I just did the driving trail. It took about 2 hours, going slowly. A lot of fun!
  12. Seen earlier this week at the Bear Lake Bird Refuge. 1 and 2. Both Vesper Sparrows? 3. Swainson's Hawk 4. White-faced Ibis 5. Long-billed Curlew
  13. Confirm Swainson's Hawk

    Great, thanks
