    Yeah, the general consensus seems to be Little Blue, but something concerning is that it does not seem to have gray tips to the primaries. Neat bird whatever it is!
  2. Gull, ducks, and shorebird

    Agreed. I think that the shoveler may be a juvenile, as adult males should show a bit of white on the face and females are more concolor.
  3. Heron/Egret

    He noted that Snowy Egrets occasionally show similar bills and yellow-green legs. He was, however, not sure.
  4. Heron/Egret

    I just received an email from Steven Mlodinow who thought that the might a Snowy Egret.
  5. Heron/Egret

    Sweet! I thought that it was a Little Blue, but it is quite rare here so I thought it best to get some confirmation.

    Hi all, Photographed today at Walden Ponds in CO where there has been a possible but unconfirmed Little Blue Heron sighting, a rarity for Colorado. I am interested to see everyone's opinion on the identification of this bird. Thanks! (Note: I have other photos, none of which depict foraging posture or wing). RSCN9556 by Phalarope73, on Flickr
  7. Immature Night Heron species?

  8. Hummers

    Thanks! I thought that the first was a nice candidate for Rufous but could never really get a nice look at it as the bird seemed to be constantly in motion. Quite bellicose for a bird of such diminutive size.

    Taken today on the Front Range of Colorado. I have tentatively identified the first as a Rufous and the last two as Calliope. Thanks! DSCN9508 by Phalarope73, on Flickr RSCN9534 by Phalarope73, on Flickr RSCN9528 by Phalarope73, on Flickr RSCN9529 by Phalarope73, on Flickr
  10. Can't figure this little guy out

    I would say Pygmy, although it may be Brown-headed. Where was the photo taken?
  11. Hummingbirds

    Ok, thanks for explaining. What would this make it then?

  13. Marsh birds

    I'll take a shot. First bird is a Green Heron, the second a Lesser Yellowlegs, third Wood Duck, fourth Lesser Yellowlegs, fifth Mallard, six Lesser Yellowlegs, and seventh a Semipalmated Sandpiper.

  15. Hummingbirds

    I thought the first one might be a Black-chinned with the whitish underparts, white behind the eye, and what looks to be a grayish cheek, but I was almost positive the second was a Calliope. The second bird looks hunched, and was noticeably smaller than the other hummingbirds. Also it has orange on the sides which BCHU lack.
