  2. mystery birdwing

    Welcome to Whatbird!! I agree, this came from a Northern Flicker, yellow shafted.
  3. Falcon ID

    Agree with Merlin. Congrats on the lifer!!
  4. What warbler is this?

  5. Ross's Goose?

    Ahhh, that makes sense. Thanks, darknight.
  6. ID Help Please

    Best I can tell from the photo it looks like a Brown-headed Cowbird.
  7. Congrats on the lifer!!
  8. Ross's Goose?

    Probably unlikely to get any closer ID than that without better photos. I'll try to get back out there this weekend and see if I can spot it again. It'll probably be there.......mixed in with 10,000+ Snow Geese!! Thanks to all of y'all for your input.
  9. Ross's Goose?

    Unfortunately these are the only photos I have. It was quite a ways off, and as you can see the sun was behind it. It caught my eye because, as I mentioned above, it was alone, near the Coots but not in with them. So I snapped these photos to look at later to ID it. I could see that it was white, larger than the Coots, and that was about it. After uploading the photos I thought Ross's, but something just doesn't look quite right!
  10. Ross's Goose?

    BUMP Anyone else have an opinion on this one?
  11. Ross's Goose?

    Saw this critter yesterday at Yolo Bypass NWR, just west of Sacramento. It was all by its lonesome, near to but not mingling with a flock of Coots. There were no other Ducks or Geese anywhere nearby. It was larger than the Coots but didn't appear to be as large as a Snow Goose or White-fronted Goose. My first thought was Ross's, since the bill appears to be stubby, and by its size. Something just doesn't seem quite right, though...............

  15. Need help with Id

    The streaking looks thin enough and the head big enough to make this a Cooper's, IMO.
