  1. Small ducks

    I don't know. Maybe Northern Pintail with that buffy neck and throat and bluish beak?

  3. Please help with these gulls

    Here are some more photos of the subject gull, what some people say is a large Iceland (Kumlien's) and a couple independent people guessed Herring X Glaucous-winged. Any more thoughts after these photos?
  4. Please help with these gulls

    Grace Lake in Wayne, off I-275, just North if 94
  5. Please help with these gulls

    Thanks and I’ll post more pics when I get a chance.
  6. Please help with these gulls

    On #4 could they both be Iceland Gulls? 2nd photo I posted they are about the same size as Herring Gull. Wouldn't Glaucous be considerably larger?
  7. Pretty Yellow bird in the backyard

    I think Yellow Warbler.
  8. Please help with these gulls

    Anyone know who I should contact in Michigan about the Gull in #4?
  9. Please help with these gulls

    Thank you @psweet! The young ones really stump me. Seems like young Herring Gulls can have a lot of brownish in them but also get pretty gray.
  10. Please help with these gulls

    Here are the gulls in #4 with what I think is a Herring Gull, for size comparison.
  11. Gulls seem to be a popular topic around here lately. I know I have at least 1 lifer here. All these were from yesterday, 1/12, at an inland lake in Southeast Michigan. Thanks in advance for any help. I have more pictures of almost all of them if you want to see other views. Editing out all the Herring Gull photos 1-3, 5-9 that @psweet ID'd. 4. ? and ?
  12. Coopers

    Beautiful photos! Those sparrows and titmice must be very observant or have good instincts. Maybe they saw the actual kill so knew they had some time before it's next meal? I don't know.
  13. Another Accipiter ID

    Strikes me as a Cooper's Hawk based on head size relative to body. Seems like a Northern Goshawk and Sharp-shinned's heads would be smaller relative to body. Not sure though. Waiting for other responses and ID points from experts.
  14. Iceland (Thayer's) Gull?

    I don't know. Bumping to see if anyone else can figure it out.
  15. FL January - Rough-winged Swallow?

    Out of curiosity, how do you get a good flying photo like that? Trying to improve my photography skills.
