  1. ID us please.

    Thank you for commenting...I had a look back thru my photos from that day and I agree that this bird is indeed a Goldfinch...not sure why I thought it was bigger but it is a Goldfinch for sure...American or Lesser is debatable.
  2. Help with 3 please.

    I appreciate your help...sadly, I agree that #1 is not IDable. However, thank you for your input on #2 and #3.
  3. Help with 3 please.

    Thank you for your help...I recall seeing a ''flash'' of black and white and I thought maybe a woodpecker of some sort but it flew fairly quickly so I didn't get a good look at it or very good photo.
  4. Help with 3 please.

    I appreciate your help...Even tho #1 held its tail wren-like I didn't see any brown/gray or pattern on the body/wings. Vaux's Swift is a lifer for me ...thank you!
  5. Help with 3 please.

    Thank you for your help...I seen the first bird twice before I was able to get this lousy photo...it was small, bluish-gray, and held its tail wren-like...after I took the photo it flew into a nearby juniper bush and I lost sight of it. I think it may have been a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher but without a better photo it is impossible to say for sure. 2. A Swift was my first thought too but I've never seen one before so I was hoping someone could tell from this photo. 3. This bird flew over my head going away from me so the shot was a quick snap and not much to go on.
  6. ID us please.

    Thank you for your help...I'm fairly certain that this bird was quite a bit bigger than a Goldfinch but we all have been fooled by size so I'll have to have a look at all of my photos from that day as I always take multiple shots if possible.
  7. ID us please.

    Thank you for your help...Western Tanager was my first impression for #3 but I'm not too sure about that now.
  8. ID us please.

    Thank you for commenting...Yes, I see 2 is a Western Tanager ...I think 3 was bigger than an American Goldfinch but it does look like one in this photo. I appreciate your help.

    1. Taken 11 Jul 2017 / South Central Washington / Klickitat Co Northern Flicker? The bill looks different to me...an artifact of light? Thank you. ☺ 2. Taken 15 Jul 2017 / South Central Washington / Klickitat Co I thought this was a Bullock's Oriole but on closer inspection, I think it might be a Yellow-headed Blackbird...any help will be greatly appreciated. ☺ 3. Taken 15 Jul 2017 / South Central Washington / Klickitat Co First thought was a Western Tanager but I'm not sure...thanks again. ☺
  10. Help with 3 please.

    Sorry for all of the lousy photos here ...I'm hoping some of these birds can be identified...thanks in advance for your help.☺ 1. Taken 17 Jul 2017 / South Central Washington / Klickitat Co This bird was small...appeared bluish-gray...and on one sighting held its tail wren-like 2. Taken 21 Jul 2017 / South Central Washington / Klickitat Co Several of these birds were flying rather low and were very fast and erratic...it was hard to keep them in sight 3.

  11. What dove (#1) and help ID #2 please.

    I agree with Sor A. Rail.
  12. Which Thrasher??

    Thank you! I've lived in WA for 45 yrs and have never seen a Brown Thrasher so I'm very excited about seeing one...a lifer and a yard bird to boot!
  13. Which Thrasher??

    Thank you!
  14. Which Thrasher??

    Thank you! I was certain it was a Brown Thrasher but my field guide [Sibley's] did not show them in my area much less my state so that is why I wanted more opinions. I don't know why he is so far afield from his range but happy to have had the chance to see him...definitely a lifer for me.
  15. Which Thrasher??

    Thank you...I appreciate your help. Yes, I agree...I've never seen one before so it is a nice addition to my life list.
