  1. Months ago they were migrating south. Now they're heading back north. You are in their breeding range.
  2. They were split, and are now grey-headed swamphens, I believe.
  3. He's been having health issues, and asked to not be tagged about IDs. He hasn't been on Facebook lately.
  4. This is a domestic chicken, not related to native prairie chickens.
  5. All domestic ducks, except Muscovys, are mallards. I don't see any evidence of wild blood in this duck. I'd say it's pure domestic, maybe a mixed breed.
  6. You got it!
  7. This bird is gliding, not in a full soar, that's why you aren't seeing the "fingers" in the wings.
  8. I don't see anything that doesn't make this a common. Head shape, bill size and shape, range,and short legs all point to common.
  9. Chukar.
  10. A finch would have a thicker, cone-shaped bill.
  11. There is a shorter outer tail feather visible in the first, pointing to Cooper's. The tail banding on the second looks good for red-shouldered.
  12. Yes, that's a yellow-rumped warbler. Where is Three Lakes WMA?
  13. Notice how short the legs are, and it has webbed feet. A heron, egret, or crane would have long legs without webbed feet.
  14. Nice gos!! Do you have a field guide? Much better than looking at pics online. One of the field marks for northern goshawk is the distinct facial markings. If you look at a field guide, you can see what hawks are seen in your area, and see that there is nothing else that really looks like a gos, so you can get a positive ID.
  15. This is an adult - notice the dark trailing edge to the wings, and the dark eyes. Adults have plain, whitish undersides to their tails, and the top is red. In juvies, you'd see the barring from underneath.
