  1. Red-tailed Hawk subspecies

    Oh goodness, I’m so sorry, I plum forgot to put in the location. Duvall, WA. (Seattle area). Thank you both!
  2. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    Figure I should do a birding update here, since I finally got to go birding today (my first outing in Feb.) Had a good day, seeing my main target, a Swamp Sparrow(!!) and getting 1 of my two lesser targets, a Rough-legged Hawk (did miss out on a White-throated Sparrow again though. At this rate I'll go without one this year too!) I also just got to spend some quality time out in some nice weather with some super cool birds, like a gorgeous dark Red-tailed and my first perched close Peregrine Falcon!!! 7 species of Diurnal Raptors wasn't too shabby either.

Certainly a large quantity of duck species! Ducks! by Painted bunting123, on Flickr
  3. Red-tailed Hawk subspecies

    Hi! I saw this absolutely gorgeous Red-tailed Hawk today, and I was wondering what subspecies it is. I'm leaning Dark Morph Western as opposed to Harlan's because of the tail, but I was interested in hearing what other's thought, and why. Thank you!

  4. Gnatcatchers!

    So I have basically no experience with Gnatcatcher ID, but I was lucky enough to spot two pairs of them in late January in eastern L.A County, California. This spot has both Blue-gray and California Gnatcatchers, and I was wondering which one I managed to capture here. I'm pretty sure they're all Blue-gray, but I'm not sure. All help is really appreciated!! 1. Not sure Gnatcatcher for ID by Painted bunting123, on Flickr 2. Blue-gray?

  5. Junco subspecies fun

    Hey! I saw this Junco in late January in eastern L.A county, California. To be extremely specific, it was at Frank. G. Bonelli Regional Park, for anyone who knows where that is. Anyway, long story short, it's not an Oregon Junco, but I'm not exactly sure what it actually is. I've never seen a bird with that rufous on the side along with so much gray. Any help is appreciated!

  6. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    Yeah, this is the second time we’ve reached 2000. The site got updated and the page numbers changed, lowering all the totals.

    Hey, I was born on this page (anyone remember the last time we got to page 2000?)
  8. Semipalmated Sandpiper

    Looks good to me too. Cool!
  9. Cormorant

    Agreed, just looks like a slightly smaller Double-crested.
  10. House Finch and ? Sparrow

    Agreed. Cool!
  11. Last bird of 2017, first bird of 2018

    My first bird of the year was a European Starling cant remember my last bird of 2017 but I think it was an American Crow
  12. A gorgeous close Townsend’s Warbler!! Also enjoyed some Varied Thrushes and a Hutton’s Vireo.
  13. Confirm that all are Snow Geese?

    All Snow Geese besides the one in the front center, which is a Greater White-fronted Goose
  14. This is a definate Sharpie right?

    I certainly don’t know any better then the responders before me, but when you’re trying to convince others the more opinions you have the better. I agree with Sharp-shinned
  15. Large Hawk-like Bird-Pennsylvania

    I agree, without a photo it’s impossible to say for sure. Could be a Goshawk. Could be a Cooper’s. They are quite hard to tell apart. (well at least for us normal people)
