  1. Hi everyone! I’m hoping you might help me with some bird detective work. I’m trying to figure out what species of raptor Frida Kahlo has in the photo below. I haven’t been able to find any information online about the bird except that it’s an “eagle” (seems more like a hawk?) and her name was Gertrudis Caca Blanca (amazing). I’m assuming it’s a species native to Mexico. Any help/ideas/direction you can give me would be much appreciated! Thanks!
  2. Golden Eagle

    Hi All, I hope someone can confirm this is a Golden Eagle. This was taken today in North east Texas near Longview. Horrible Pics - it was flying really high. If it is, it is rare here. Thanks so much!
  3. 2 Questions

    I would like some help aging this eagle, with any tips for aging immature birds, please. Is the middle snow goose a juvenile?
  4. What is this bird?

    I spotted a large bird (eagle, raptor) at Long Beach WA On June 5th. The 1st photo shows 2 of these birds and the 2nd photo sitting behind a Bald Eagle. It appears to be about 10-25% larger than the Bald Eagle. It was mostly brown with a lighter colored chest. I believe the 3rd picture might be this bird in flight (but not sure). Can you help me identify the bird? Thanks
  5. Need help with ID

    I was shooting photos of some soaring red tail hawks yesterday and thought this guy was a vulture passing through. But then I noticed the white head and yellow beak. I'm in Trabuco Canyon, CA and we do have some Golden Eagles, but very rare to see Bald Eagles. Not sure if this is an Eagle, Osprey or just a light morphed hawk. Any help with ID would be appreciated!
  6. Could you please help me identify this bird? Is it an eagle, and if so what kind? Spotted in Coronado, California on March 21, 2017.
  7. Is this a Juvenile Bald Eagle?

    Spotted in Jamaica Bay, Queens, NYC this afternoon. My second guess is a Northern Harrier, but the shape of the head and bill seem more elongated like an Eagle. Can anyone confirm? Thanks! Baldie by degibox, on Flickr
  8. Is this a young Osprey?

    This is in Southern Oregon. This photo was taken in late July.
  9. So I was venturing in Denali National Park in Alaska and came across this guy hanging out in a tree in a downpour. My initial thought was that it was an immature Bald, but his/her beak seems abnormally large, maybe it is just because it is soaked. This particular bird was quite large as well.
  10. Golden or Bald?

    I saw this eagle 2 weeks ago on June 11 at Point Pelee National Park, Ontario. Bald is more likely for this time of year, but some markings make me think Golden. Thoughts?
  11. Eagle ID Help

    I saw this bird today being mobbed by two Common Ravens. My gut says its a Golden Eagle, but I can't stop doubting my initial ID. The bird was seen in Mount Rainier National Park on the Westside Road. It was comparably larger than the two Ravens and a Turkey Vulture that was circling near. The attached pictures are poor, but they are the best I was able to get. Any help confirming or an explanation as to why this is a Bald Eagle would be awesome!
  12. Eagle or hawk?

    Found this bird eating a rabbit in an area (Mojave National Preserve in California) where there are golden eagles and red-tail hawks. It could be a juvenile, as it tried carrying a large jackrabbit and it fell from its grasp, then it flew down the road 20 yards and attacked a vulture that was eating a different rabbit. It then took the rabbit away from the vulture and was able to lift that rabbit and fly away with it, with the vulture chasing. I can post the video after I know what kind of bird of prey it is. Thanks for your help in advance.
  13. I'm a complete amateur, but my Google skills tell me this may be a Bald Eagle. However, people around here say we don't have them and it must be an Osprey or some other type of eagle or hawk. Thanks for any help. We live on a lake and the geese and ducks were being particularly noisy this morning (more than usual). I woke up to find every waterfowl on the lake (a few dozen) in a tight group in the middle of the lake, and in the center was a new group of 11 Muscovy ducklings. This bird of prey was circling overhead, dive bombing the ducklings. He would rest on a branch for a few minutes and dive bomb them again. I got several pictures of him on branches and one shot of him swooping down and snatching one of the ducklings out of the water.
  14. Any ideas if this is a Golden or a Bald Eagle? Taken July 20th in Ennis Montana. https://www.flickr.com/photos/137957305@N06/shares/S5V9A9 Thanks!
  15. Out here in the Mojave desert of California I don't see either very often. IMG_4139 by Terry Dickerson, on Flickr
  16. Golden Eagle?

    Taken in Yellowstone Park. Is this a golden eagle? Thanks
  17. I seen this big bird right in my back yard. Located in Wasaga Beach, Ontario. Not sure what it is??
  18. This large raptor has been hanging around our back yard for several days. It is quite fearless and allows us to get close to take photos. However we are not able to positively identify it. Possibly an immature eagle? Very large hawk? arge hawk?
  19. I live in Virginia. I just walked out into our field and saw this bird fly onto a tree about a 1/4 of a mile away. I don't have a fancy camera so this is the best shot I could get of it. Is this an Eagle? I've never seen one around here before in the 24 years I've lived here. But I never was into cameras back then either. Amazing what you see with a camera. Thanks for your help.
  20. Soaring Birds

    Hello! Right before a thunderstorm I managed to snag a few pictures of birds with my Phone, and sadly could not identify them just going off of these pictures by myself. I do have some ideas of what they might be (I believe one to be a Heron, another to be a vulture, not sure though) and was wondering if you guys could help me ID. There were about 3 birds in total flying around at a great height. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6
  21. I photographed this near the Colorado/Wyoming border. What is it? Thanks!
  22. I saw 5 or 6 of these raptors in my neighbors tree. I am in the foothills of Los Angeles. Specifically Altadena, CA. I think they are Swainson Hawks, but I can not find anything that lokks quite like it? Any ideas? Thanks
  23. Hoping for a hawk and eagle ID - or both hawks? Both photos taken February 2015 in the Bay Area.
  24. I saw this bird in my back yard Sunday November 23 about 11:30am. He stayed around for about 45 minutes. I live about 50 yards from a major river in far southwest Michigan. We are having a debate - one friend says "chicken hawk" another says "Juvenile bald eagle" while others says they can't decide based on google images of both. To me, it doesn't look like a Red Tail Hawk based on the bands on its tail. He was pretty big - I would guess 18-24 inches tall and about 5-10 lbs. Sorry for the poor photo quality as he was about 50-75 feet away taken with a POS camera. Thanks for your feedback.
