  1. Thank You! This one's going in the books as Cooper's Hawk.
  2. Thanks, there's been some discussion for young Goshawk, based on apparent bulk/shape of body and smallish head. Thoughts?
  3. Can this hawk be ID'd? 4/13 Northeastern, PA. Thanks.
  4. Eel Bay Sunset (HDR, Watercolor, and BuzSim) John
  5. Great - Thanks TBG and Greenmagpie! John
  6. Today, just west of Allentown, PA. Thanks, John
  7. Being a landluber, I'll have to pass on the gulls, but I believe the hawk is indeed Red-tailed. The sides of the light belly band are visible, as is the dark patagial bar on the leading edge of the wing. John
  8. Unless Western is a possiblity at your location, I'd call that one Eastern Wood-pewee, too. John
  9. Yes, yes, - you are correct - American Tree Sparrow. John
  10. Lake Ontario from the El Dorado Beach Preserve near Henderson Harbor New York.
  11. I agree with you - Red-tailed Hawk it is! John
  12. Yep, and a cute little one at that! John
  13. Thanks BarnSwallow! John
  14. Yes Astrobirder, continuing - and all the "big birders" near Allentown have taken a look. No one is quite sure of it's provenance though. Apparently some people buy and keep this species in their ponds for show. Though no one seems to know of anyone locally doing this. John
