  3. Another Accipiter ID

    http://coloradobirder.club/m/photos/browse/album/Running-Deer-Natural-Area-Fort-Collins/ Hi all Back shots tail seem rounded off ... back end shot looks like tail could be straight and looks like "chicken legs"? First call was Sharpie now that I look closer unsure ... Thanks Gary
  4. Cooper's or Sharpie?

    Thanks all!
  5. Cooper's or Sharpie?

    Hi all At first I thought Sharpie but in looking at the photo could it be a male Cooper's? It was a small bird. http://coloradobirder.club/m/photos/view/IMG-5890 Thanks Gary
  6. Long-tailed Duck?

  9. Merlin or Accipiter?

    Thanks all
  10. Merlin or Accipiter?

    Hi all This bird was a little confusing to me for the following reasons: Chased a Eurasian-collared Dove (similarly sized appearance) Don't really see the weak Merlin mustache in the profile photo I saw this bird fly across the road to taller bush (Lilac I think) which had tumbleweeds at base full of House Sparrow. This same bird worked its way down in/through the tumbleweeds to try and capture a sparrow-as an accipiter would When I viewed it across the street its tail seemed way to long for a Merlin (I suppose it could be a different bird but pretty sure same one) http://coloradobirder.club/m/photos/browse/album/Clark-Lake-Ault/ Maybe I am overanalyzing ... maybe not ... :-) Thanks Gary
  11. Empid ID?

    Hi all Seen in spring of this year, Colorado ...
  12. Your Opinions: Parasitic Yaeger

    Might be two in area ... I only have photos of bird on water below. Windsor Lake yesterday in Windsor, Colorado. Yaegers are rare but seen uncommonly most fall/winters. http://coloradobirder.club/m/photos/browse/album/Windsor-Lake-06-25-2017/ Other comments from locals: 1-Consensus on this bird is dark Morph juvenile Parasitic. The bird was smaller than the Ring-billed Gulls it was chasing and lacked the girth and larger size associated with Pomarines. The bill did not match Pomarine or Long-tailed as there was black only on the very tip. There were more than two white shafts visible on the top of the primaries in flight and the undersides were very obviously white eliminating Long-tailed. 2-Had to run to windsor for work and wanted to follow up on Gary Lefko's post. Currently looking at the bird. I'm not convinced it's the same Jaeger as the Timnath bird yet but could be. It is an Intermediate Morph Parasitic for sure. Seems to have a lot more white barring on the belly and undertail coverts than the pics from Timnath. But it could just be lighting as well. Still has 4-5 white primary shafts that I captured in a bad but identifiable photo.
