    Agree with Swainson's. Nice bird for your location. Congrats on the lifer!!
  2. Alberta Owl Confirmation

    Agree with Long-eared. Nice shot!!
  3. Help ID Hummingbird

    I agree with Anna's for the reasons stated above.
  4. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    Ahhhh, then I know what it is!! When I lived in Wyo in the mid-70's I frequented the Arctic Circle in Rock Springs. The sauce they had there was the best I've ever tasted! Must have been the same stuff.
  5. LOL!

    These two Pied-billed Grebes were fighting when I first saw them. By the time I got stopped and got my camera up they were a few feet apart, and it looked like the one on the right was trying to shoo the other one away!! "Go on, now!! Shoo!!"

  7. Yellow-rumped Warbler Or ??

    Agree with Yellow-rumped. Myrtle variety, with that white throat and dark auricular.
  8. Not Sure

    Looks like a Northern Shrike, with the narrow mask and fairly long hooked bill.
  9. Teal?

    I agree with HamRHead, Gadwall.
  10. What type of hawk?

    Congrats on the lifer!!
  11. Chimney Swift?

    Agree with Chimney Swift, looks like a flying cigar. Congrats on the lifer!!
  12. Hawk

    I was editing my post above as you posted this. I agree with Red-tailed for both.
  13. Hawk

    I agree with Rough-legged for the 1st and Red-tailed for the 2nd. EDIT: After looking closer, I think the 1st is a Red-tailed also, due to the tail bands and not enough white on its head.
  14. What type of hawk?

    With the amount of white on its belly, I'd say an intermediate juvenile Swainson's.
  15. Brown or long beaked thrasher

    Welcome to Whatbird!! I agree with Brown Thrasher.
