Post your comparison photos (such as a Hairy and a Downy in the same picture) here.

This is a fabulous idea for a thread, Jenny! (I think if anyone does have a downy and a hairy in the same shot, that would be awesome.)

I don't have anything super useful to post, but here's American Goldfinches with a Yellow Rumped Warbler.

Bottom Right Ruddy Ground Dove with clean Breast Second row Ruddy

Top Right, Eurasian Collard Dove

Top Left Inca Dove with dark Bill and Scales on breast

Middle Below Eurasian, another Inca.

I thought it unusual to get the three small doves in one picture.

Wow Fraser! I'm really impressed with the three (four counting the Rat!) in one! Once in a lifetime shot there.

Thanks Creeker, yes when I saw this thread and the way it is being used, for technical comparisons, my memory jogged about the Three Small Doves. I like the Blackbird shots, I'm yet to get the Tri-color as a life bird yet. Also the shot by Lizard Lady of the two Yellowlegs and too the Finch shots... very interesting comparison shots.

I have a Goose shot that I will post as soon as I can find it. Four different Geese in one photo. Also the other member shots, Good thread.

I thought there were 4 but there are three Geese Species, Canada, Ross, and Greater White-fronted Geese
