  1. I've been seeing a lot of Coopers Hawks in my yard lately and I saw this hawk today and he looked a lot smaller and a little different (big buggy eyes). I'm thinking this might be a Sharpie. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
  2. Red-Tailed Hawk?

    I think this is a SUPER dark red-tailed hawk but I wanted a second opinion. Seen near the Boise River in Boise, Idaho. Thanks!
  3. Which Falcon

    Thanks for all the kind feedback! This falcon was up in a tree and I was able to get a TON of photos of him before he took off and I was really happy with this photo. It's my first decent peregrine photo!
  4. Which Falcon

    I saw this guy today near the Boise River in Idaho. I think it's a peregrine falcon but I wanted to double check.
  5. Help ID These Six Birds

    Thanks for all the help! Love this forum!!!
  6. Help ID These Six Birds

    They were seen a few months ago near Silver City, Idaho.
  7. Okay, here are six different birds... I think I know what most of them are but I'd like to get a second opinion. All seen in Idaho or Oregon. Thanks! 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6:
  8. Cedar or Bohemian Waxwing

    Awesome! That's a new one for my yard! Thanks!
  9. Dark Hawk

    Looks like a red-tail to me too.
  10. Cedar or Bohemian Waxwing

    Check out the additional photo I added to this post. Is this a Cedar and a Bohemian Waxwing together?
  11. Cedar or Bohemian Waxwing

    Here's another photo I took today and based on some research I did online it looks like the one on the left might be a Cedar and the one on the right is a Bohemian... thoughts?
  12. I've seen waxwings in my yard every winter and I've always thought they were Cedar Waxwings but now I'm not sure. Both species have been seen in Idaho so I'm not sure what I have in my yard. Please take a look at these photos and let me know what you think. Thanks! This photo was taken last winter: This photo was taken today:
  13. Coopers or Sharpie?

    This guy was hunting quail in my yard this morning (near Boise, Idaho). Is this a Coopers or Sharpie? I can never tell. Thanks!
  14. Scrub Jay?

    Awesome! Thanks for the info. Hopefully he'll come back to the yard soon and I'll get a better photo... still not really sure how to tell these two apart. Thanks!
  15. Scrub Jay?

    I looked online and it says both species have been seen in Idaho so I'm not sure... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_birds_of_Idaho#Jays,_crows,_magpies,_and_ravens
