  1. Don't feel too bad, mine is only 34 square miles. Yours seem like an entire state compared to my county. My county list is 158 though, which is pretty good.
  2. Well, I don't know my Costa Rican birds very well (though I know for a start that the kite is a Semiplumbeous Hawk) but I'm sure it has more then that, because on his profile it says that he's a entomologist
  3. I agree! Very cool shot for sure.
  4. Agreed with Say's Phoebe, a fairly common bird in Colorado.
  5. Actually, this is not an Eastern Phoebe. A Phoebe would have a flatter head, a more bulky beak, and the head would be even darker. This is one of the empidonax flycatchers (DavidT?).
  6. I'm thinking wood-pewee. That vest isn't very distinct, and the tail is a little long for Olive-sided.
  7. Do I have a Least or a Dusky here? Leaning Least based on the more contrasting plumage and and the more rounded head, though I could be wrong. Taken in Broomfield, Colorado earlier this morning. Thanks!
  8. Awesome! Glad you got to see them!
  9. Another thing is that Vermillion is rare in northern California, especially north of Sacramento. So I'm also going to say Western Bluebird. It may not be one necessarily, but I don't think there is much other species it could be. Females Western Bluebirds can get quite drab, so that would make sense.
  10. Agreed with Colorado Owl.
  11. Hmm... What was the habitat like? And did it have any pitch change throughout the song? I have a couple ideas, but I think more information would help.
  12. I'm thinking Orange-crowned. For one thing, the undertail coverts are washed with yellow, which is a Orange-crowned trait, and the tail looks a little long for Tennessee.
  13. Well, the storm Colorado had the last couple of days wasn't as good for landbirds as I hoped, but it was great for Red-necked Phalaropes! I went to my patch yesterday afternoon, and found big flocks with them at two different ponds! (as well as a couple Wilson's Phalaropes). It was pretty nice, as they are (more or less) uncommon in CO. And the cool thing was, they were still around this morning, though nowhere near the size of the flocks yesterday. Here's the lists:
  14. Yep! Red-necked Phalarope!
