  1. Sharp Shinned or Coopers

    Thanks. My thoughts too, but I wanted confirmation as sharp-shinned is a life-lister for me.
  2. Sharp Shinned or Coopers

    Need help. Is this a Sharp-shinned Hawk or a Coopers Hawks? Taken today near Salem Oregon. For size reference the birds in the water are mostly Coots.
  3. unknown bird Oregon

    When I first took the picture I thought Pine Siskin, but then when I looked at the photo, i was confused by the eye ring, and i thought there might be too much white in the chin. However, maybe it is not an eye ring and just some light feathers catching the light. Cassin's is possible in that area, but not likely. It is just barely out of area. I am leaning towards pine siskin, but yellow-rumped is possible too. I have never photographed a pine siskin so I am hoping that is it. Anyone want to confirm? thoughts?

    It's on Flickr: www.flickr.com/photos/132584650@N06/36044341384 Is the link not working?
  5. unknown bird Oregon

    This looked easy at first, but now I am not sure. Taken about a month ago at a look out point for Mount Washington in central Oregon. Any thoughts? www.flickr.com/photos/132584650@N06/36044341384
  6. Two birds near Austin TX

    Took my first ever trip to Austin, TX. Got a lot of great new birds. Unsure on these two. (1) I think the grebe is a least grebe (taken at hornsby bend) but this would be a life-lister so I would like confirmation. It was very small. No frame of reference in the photo, but it was much smaller than some coots nearby. www.flickr.com/photos/132584650@N06/33157788480 (2) No Idea on this small warbler - www.flickr.com/photos/132584650@N06/33157797300
  7. Two more birds I need help with

    Thanks everyone, I'll put it in the coot file.
  8. Two more birds I need help with

    I am not convinced. I literally see coots everyday of my life. This bird looks different...especially the shape of it. Does anyone have any other reason to believe this is a coot? Anyone else think moorhen?
  9. Two more birds I need help with

    i am totally willing to accept it as a boring old coot (or in this case a boring young coot), but I need to hear reasons why it is a coot instead of a moorhen.
  10. Two more birds I need help with

    Thanks, I was thinking 1 was a moorhen. Any thoughts?

    Thanks everyone
  13. Birds at Lyle Ranch, Utah

    Thanks, can anyone confirm Ash-throated Flycatcher - that would be a lifer for me
  14. Hawk

    I am thinking Coopers or Sharp Shinned, but really, I am unable to tell. Maybe it is even a female Northern Goshawk. Taken last week in St. George, Utah https://www.flickr.com/photos/132584650@N06/28153440272
  15. Birds at Lyle Ranch, Utah

    1. I thought of a Yellow Warbler at the time, but it was really small. Maybe 4 inches at most. Plus, I did not observe any streaking on the chest. You might be right, but I thought I would give more info to see if that changes anything.
