    Hi Whatbird Community! I have a photo of a Gull above wich was taken today at the San Francisco Zoo and I was wondering what it is as I’m frankly clueless. The image is unfortunately kind of fuzzy since I couldn’t download it in a better resolution. Thanks in advance!

  11. I'm pretty sure these are goldfinch. What do you think? https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rxMwUOseC00ngL_gOr3x0Y_djvAexZrK/view?usp=sharing
  12. Hello, my friend wanted me to look over his photos of a hawk which killed a rock dove. Here is his observation: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/9505128 (Graphic content) I was for sure this was either a Cooper's or Sharpie, or any other Accipiter hawk. The photo is not very good, but I could still make it out. I wanted to know what your guys' thoughts were.

  15. Pacific West

    Plannig a Road Trip with the family. It’s not a “birding” trip, but I will be able to stop whenever I want to bird along the trip, you know...since I’m the man of the house!!! (As long as it’s okay with my wife that is!!!! Most “birding stops” will be around 1-2 hours, so short and sweet. Except nation parks, and major stoping points, which I will have 1-4 days at each. My path is looking like the following: Start San diego, Drive to Las Vegas after work. Stay over night. Day 1: visit Vegas, Stay over night Day 2: drive to Salt Lake City, Utah...(any stops along the way, off of Interstate 15?) Stay over night. Day 3: Visit Salt Lake City, Stay Over night. (Local Birding Spots???) Day 4: Stay at Salt Lake?/or most likely head to Yellowstone National park trough Grand Tenton. Day 5: stay in Grand Tenton or Yellowstone (most likely YellowStone) Day 6-7: Visit Yellowstone Day 8: Drive to Spokane Washigton Day 9-12: Visit Spokane/idaho Day 13: Drive to Seattle. Day 14-15 Visit Seattle/Olympic National Park Day 16 Drive to Crater Lake, Oregon Day 17-18: Visit Crater Lake Day 19-21: Drive back to San Diego, or spend more time at other locations throughout the trip.
  16. Hello, I need help in identifying these birds. They were found on June 23, 2017 in Alviso Marina County Park CA, USA. My guess is that the 1st one might be a Song Sparrow, but want to verify. DSCN2908 by Yolanda Marquez, on Flickr DSCN2866 by Yolanda Marquez, on Flickr

  20. Bald or Golden?

    I can't tell. It seemed pretty big to me so bald eagle? Then again it could also be a golden eagle, since they are more common in my area. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SnkUf3pEWpxepgN40M3UX1Q34NUUqW0y/view?usp=sharing

  22. Hey everyone, got some shots of two ducks/geese in flight while testing out my new camera lens. Didn't realize until I went through my pictures later that I couldn't ID them. Sorry for the poor quality, this is at 1 to 1 crop of images taken at 500mm. Charleston Slough area, Mountain View, CA on July 17, 2017.
  23. Hi there, I took these pictures at the Point Lobos reserve, somewhere between the China Cove and Hidden Beach, in mid-August this year. After checking National Geographic Field Guide and browsing internet for the last few days I think it may be a Song Sparrow, but I will not be surprised if this is something else. It won't be the first time. (I also thought about Savannah Sparrow, but ruled it out as lacking a yellow eyebrow.) Hope someone can help me with ID. Thanks
  24. Loon

    Attached is a picture of loons in califronia. I believe they all are Red-Throated Loons, please correct me if I’m wrong!! thank you!
  25. Hey there, I've been traveling all over California and I found this bird in the Wister Waterfowl Management Area near the Salton Sea back in April. I tried looking for birds that reside in it, but I haven't found much. I THINK this is a long billed curlew, but I'm not sure. Any help is highly appreciated.
