    So much valuable info. Thanks again. I think I’ll have to put a question mark in the books as far as this accipiter goes. I wish I got a better look.

    Thanks everyone! Stoked on my muskrat lifer
  9. In San Rafael, CA. This one was far enough away to confuse me. Lots of Black and Say's Phoebe's around, but this looked different to me for some reason.. Thx in advance! IMG_6051 by Jason, on Flickr IMG_6052 by Jason, on Flickr

    Type of Bird

    If we're talking about the bird on the far right, I'm not seeing a cormorant. Looks more "murre" like in shape and appearance.

    Coopers

    Went back and forth a little, but I think this is a Cooper's. Still haven't found my first Sharp-shinned I'm afraid. IMG_5930 by Jason, on Flickr IMG_5926 by Jason, on Flickr IMG_5922 by Jason, on Flickr IMG_5924 by Jason, on Flickr

    Gull help

    Curious about which types of gulls are in this shot. I see variety, but wasn't sure if they're all the same species just with varying plumage or maybe different year birds. IMG_5862 by Jason, on Flickr

    California birds

    Thanks everyone for the info. If I recall there were a few adult song sparrows hanging around the day I took that shot so Juvi Song sparrow would make a lot of sense. Here's another shot of that Grebe if it helps. IMG_5836 by Jason, on Flickr

    California birds

    I should've noted that the sparrow picture was taken this past August. For what it's worth.

    red-shouldered hawk?

    Looks like you got a Red Tailed Hawk. The "belly band" is a good characteristic to look for

    Sharp-shinned or small Cooper's Hawk?

    Looks very much like a Sharpie to me as well. But as someone that's still learning, I'm curious about the length of the tail feathers. In the first shot they look fairly uneven to me which I thought was diagnostic of Cooper's..
  20. Hey all, Question: Is it safe to say that any crows I come across in Orcas Island, Lopez Island, in WA are northwestern crows and not american? They're so similar and it seems like range is the best way to tell them apart. Any other advice or observations on this appreciated. Thanks!
  21. Seen at Sequoia National Park this past weekend. Thx IMG_8865 by Jason, on Flickr
