  2. Confirm Long-eared Owl

  3. Confirm Long-eared Owl

    Hi all Visitor (#134 yard species) to our Nunn, CO yard all day yesterday. When relaxed in conifer I first thought Great Horned Owl (male)--then he came out at dusk, flew around yard many times, looked very slender, smaller than our usual Great Horneds and face looked more Long-eared than Great Horned. Tuffs seemed longer more atop head than side. First four photos. http://coloradobirder.club/m/photos/browse/album/Nunn-Yard-Bird/ Thanks Gary Yard list: Species (Blue Newest) Sand Hill Crane Great Blue Heron Mallard Canada Goose Snow Goose American White Pelican Turkey Vulture Sharp-Shinned Hawk Cooper's Hawk Northern Harrier Swainson's Hawk Red-Tailed Hawk Ferruginous Hawk Rough-Legged Hawk Golden Eagle Bald Eagle American Kestrel Prairie Falcon Merlin Gambel's Quail Northern Bobwhite Chukar Ring-Necked Pheasant Ring-billed Gull Killdeer Rock Pigeon Eurasian-Collared Dove White-winged Dove Mourning Dove Long-eared Owl Short-eared Owl Great-Horned Owl Burrowing Owl Eastern Screech Owl Barn Owl loggerhead Shrike Broad-Tailed Hummingbird Rufous Hummingbird Black-Chinned Hummingbird Calliope Hummingbird Northern Flicker (Yellow and Red-Shafted) Downy Woodpecker Red-headed Woodpecker Hairy Woodpecker Red-breasted Nuthatch Eastern Kingbird Western Kingbird Cordilleran Flycatcher Scissor-tailed Flycatcher Great-crested Flycatcher Western Tanager Western Wood-Pewee Say's Phoebe Empid species Northern Shrike Loggerhead Shrike Eastern Bluejay Western Scrub Jay Clark's Nutcracker Northern Rough-winged Swallow Barn Swallow Cliff Swallow European Starling Black-billed Magpie American Crow Common Raven Common Grackle Horned Lark Rock Wren House Wren Winter Wren Blue-gray Gnatcatcher Townsend's Solitaire Mountain Bluebird Gray Catbird American Robin Hermit Thrush Swainson's Thrush Sage Thrasher Brown Thrasher Curve-billed Thrasher Northern Mockingbird American Pipit Ruby-Crowned Kinglet Yellow Warbler Wilson's Warbler Common Yellowthroat Yellow-Rumped Warbler Orange-crowned Warbler Townsend's Warbler Blackburnian Warbler Lark Bunting Green-tailed Towhee Spotted Towhee Lark Sparrow Savannah Sparrow Cassin's Sparrow Lincoln's Sparrow Song Sparrow Clay-Colored Sparrow Brewer's Sparrow Field Sparrow American Tree Sparrow Grasshopper Sparrow Harris's Sparrow Vesper Sparrow Chipping Sparrow White-Crowned Sparrow Dark-eyed Junco (Oregon, Slate-Colored, Pink-sided, Gray-headed) Lapland Longspur Chestnut-Collared Longspur McCown's Longspur Western Tanager Dickcissel Blue Grosbeak Black-headed Grosbeak Bullock's Oriole Orchard Oriole Brown-headed Cowbird Brewer's Blackbird Great-Tailed Grackle Common Grackle Yellow-Headed Blackbird Red-Winged Blackbird Bobolink Western Meadowlark American Goldfinch Lesser Goldfinch Pine Siskin Common Redpoll House Finch (Normal, Yellow Variant) Purple Finch Gray-Crowned Rosy Finch House Sparrow

  11. Another FL Shorebird Puzzler

  12. Reddish Egret or Little Blue Heron ID?

    Hi all FL 10 days ago (Largo-St Pete). This bird I wavered from Reddish Egret (URL name) to renaming it to Little Blue Heron on actual photo page. When I looked at other searched photos of both species the bird I photoed seemed to have a bi-colored bill more like the Little Blue. Birder here said too shaggy for Blue, he suggested Reddish Egret. Thoughts? http://coloradobirder.club/m/photos/view/Reddish-Egret Thanks Gary
