  1. Both Lessers and Greaters can show a green sheen on their heads depending on the angle/lighting. Here is a Lesser with a green sheen: http://www.ejphoto.com/images_AZ/AZ_LesserScaup20.jpg

  3. Well, small, rounded head says Sharpie, and small, serious eyes say Cooper's. So I guess we won't be able to tell without photos. Sorry.
  4. I think they were trying to make it so we wouldn't notice them. I'd never seen a goose do that before and I haven't seen that since.
  5. Looks like a regular Canada Goose with its neck tucked in a little. They can hold there necks in many different positions. Check out this weird neck position! Canada Geese by The Bird Nuts, on Flickr
  6. Yeah, it's not a Red-tailed with that long bright yellow gape. Looks good for a Ferruginous to me!
  7. Yellow-rumped Warbler.
  8. Not eBird, but................... http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/birding/broad-winged-hawk/ Make sure you look through all the photos.
  9. This is a Red-shouldered Hawk with that bold barring on the wings.
  10. Welcome to Whatbird! It very well could have been an immature Sharp-shinned Hawk. Cooper's Hawks are super similar, though, and since you didn't get photos, I'm not sure we can be certain. Do you remember the shape of its head (blocky or rounded) or thickness/density of the streaking on its breast and belly? Did its eyes look large and bug-eyed or smaller and serious? I guess another possibility is a Merlin since you said you don't think the tail was very long. EDIT: Bird Brain beat me!
  11. Triple post.
  12. Double post.
  13. This is a Red-tailed Hawk. The belly band is a good mark to look for.
  14. We saw the Tufted Duck from Chimney Point. There was a lot of ice near Crown Point. Have you seen the Barrow's Goldeneye in Port Henry? We have been to Merck Forest before, would love to go back. Nice photos!
  15. American Tree Sparrow.
