  1. Today in Detroit, MI, with Herring Gulls in photos 2 and 3.
  2. Potential Duck Lifer

    1/18/18 in Southeast Michigan Are any, or all, of these circled ducks American Black Ducks?
  3. Trying to learn gulls

    Yesterday, 1/18, at Lake Erie Metropark, Southeast Michigan. Please help. 1. 1st winter Herring Gull? 2. Best guess is 1st winter Great Black-backed Gull (the big one)
  4. Gulls seem to be a popular topic around here lately. I know I have at least 1 lifer here. All these were from yesterday, 1/12, at an inland lake in Southeast Michigan. Thanks in advance for any help. I have more pictures of almost all of them if you want to see other views. Editing out all the Herring Gull photos 1-3, 5-9 that @psweet ID'd. 4. ? and ?
  5. Black-backed Gull?

    Detroit, MI, 12/21/17 Is this a Black-backed Gull? And if so, is it possible to tell which one? Second pic with what appears to be a Ring-billed Gull.
  6. Southeast Michigan, 11/10/17 Was going through some old photos... This duck (circled) was hanging out with a bunch of Green-winged Teal, some Mallards and a few Northern Shovelers (lifer, not shown). They were on the far side of the marsh, which is why the photo (cropped) is so bad. Plain head and dark bill. Looks about the same size as the female Mallard in front. Thoughts?
  7. 11/6/17 Southeast Michigan
  8. Duck and Gulls

    Yesterday in Detroit: 1. Greater Scaup (lifer)? 2. Flying gull: Bonaparte's (lifer)? 3. Large gull behind Ring-billed: Herring?
  9. All within the past couple days in Southeast Michigan: 1. This goose was about the size of the Canada Geese. I assume it is a hybrid between a Canada Goose and something. What is it? 2. Fairly confident in these. Let me know if I'm wrong or missed anything. Canvasbacks, Redheads, Buffleheads on the right, and Hooded Mergansers in the back: 3. These were the best shots I could get.
  10. 8/24/17 near Crosswinds Marsh, Michigan 3 Pectoral Sandpipers in front, a Killdeer in the middle back, but what it the sandpiper I'm pointing to:
  11. Swamp Sparrow, right?

    Yesterday, near Dearborn, MI
  12. What Sparrow?

    About a week ago (when it was warm) in Southeast Michigan.
  13. What duck?

    What is this small duck with the Mallards? Same individual middle of first photo and left in second. Dearborn, MI. 10/16/17
  14. Cooper's Hawk?

    10/2/17 in Southeast Michigan
  15. Northern Bobwhite

    Don't know what else it could be. This afternoon, 10/22, in Dearborn Heights, MI. This is a life bird and definitely my new favorite yard bird. I had a young Eastern Screech Owl a few months ago in my tiny, suburban back yard. One nice thing about the tiny yard back yard is I can get some photos from inside with my point and shoot (superzoom). Please confirm for my own peace of mind.
  16. Poor Warbler photos

    9/28/17, through a grimy office window in Dearborn, MI
  17. What Warbler(s)?

    Yesterday in Dearborn, MI. In tall grass and weeds and some type of berry thickets adjacent to mowed grass near deciduous woods. Not sure if these photos are good enough for ID. Could they be the same species?
  18. Warblers and Vireo

    These are from yesterday, 10/9/17, Dearborn, MI: 1. Northern Parula (lifer)? 2. Black-throated Green Warbler (lifer)? Only other thing I can think of is Blackburnian (lifer). 3. Black-throated Blue? 4. Blue-headed Vireo? 5. Same as Bird #2? 6. Another Black-throated Blue Warbler? Female? Juvenile?
  19. Red-shouldered Hawk?

    NOT MY PHOTO. Taken yesterday in Dearborn, MI
  20. Purple Martin, correct?

    Not a lifer, but first time seeing in Michigan. 8/12/17, Southeast Michigan
  21. Today, 8/24, Southeast Michigan. 1. Yellowlegs 2. Yellowlegs 3. Can this be ID'd? 4. With the Killdeer, Pectoral? 5. Another Pectoral? 6. Killdeer, Pectoral Sandpiper in front? What's in the back?
  22. Yesterday, 8/22, Dearborn, MI 1. Please confirm (lifer!) Blue-winged Warbler 2. I'm fairly confident with my ID in the field. There were 2-3 of these flitting about ~20 feet up. Not a lifer (but a photo lifer), but I want to see if anyone guesses what I thought with these were. (I think there might be some diagnostic marks even from this blurry photo. This is the only photo I was able to get.)
