    Duck?

    This duck was seen at Santee Lakes in Southern California near San Diego.
  3. Can't find this duck in either iBird Ultimate or the Crossley ID Guide Waterfowl.

    House or Winter?

    I agree. All House Wrens I've seen are drab compared to this bird.

    Swainson's Hawk?

    I agree with Red-tailed due to the dark patigals and belly band. Red-tailed are the most variable of all the hawks. They show a wide variation in color patterns, and can just about drive a birder crazy at times!

    What Sparrow?

    Agree with white-crowned, an immature bird

    Some kind of Swift?

    By the way, swifts never sit on anything. They can only cling to vertical walls, which they mostly do in hiding.

    Rich colour, distinct supercillium, short fine dark bill. Winter for me. Scott

    Swainson's Hawk?

    Red-tailed Hawk is correct.
  11. Seen July 26, 2016 in southcentral Kansas, in an open habitat by a lake. This is a pretty old observation, but I recently got iNaturalist and put a bunch of old stuff on there, and this one sparked some interest! I have always assumed this was a Red-tailed Hawk, because there seems to be a patagial showing and a bit of a bellyband, (I was also told this bird was a red-tailed hawk by some others long ago) but a few on iNaturalist believe Swainson's Hawk, which I could see why with that dark chest and such. So I am unsure now if this is an oddly marked Swainson's (they don't show patagial marks as far as I know, unless that's not a patagial mark I'm seeing?), or an oddly marked Red-tailed ahah, so I thought I would come here for more opinions! " Thank you all in advance for any help! inaturalist link: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/19341886
  12. Can someone tell me what these birds are. About 30 of them sitting on the wires and flying all around. This was in Belle Glade, Fl. a couple of days ago.
  13. From the end of December.. American Black Duck and Mute Swan
  14. Today, Augusta, GA. Thanks and free likes while supplies last!

    What Sparrow?

    Appreciate the quick response! Also thanks for pointing out the distinguishing features. I'm still in the early phases of birding, so that helps a lot! Actually I'm trying to catalog my collection in Lightroom, so I might be back with more soon 😉

    What Sparrow?

    This is a White-Crowned. the face is quite incorrect for a Field (no complete eye ring, there's a black eye stripe, which is wrong, the crown is divided and too prominent, the face not gray enough). The breast is also faintly streaked, the wing bars are quite distinct and the back doesn't seem to be rufous enough. All that said, this is a beautiful shot in what seem to be rather low light. Well done!
  17. According to the American Museum of Natural History field guid, this could be an immature White-Crowned Sparrow, but according to Peterson's it could also be an adult Field Sparrow. Which is it? Seen on November 14th in central Virginia. Thanks for the help!

  19. Agree with Cooper's for the same reasons.
  20. Looks better for a Vesper to me. A Savannah would show more streaking on the flanks and shouldn't show such a bold white eye-ring.
  21. Hi, This was taken today in Vernon, BC. Merlin keeps on telling me Vesper but I think Savannah. Thanks in advance.
  22. Yes to Cooper's for the reasons you gave. It's just too bulky for a Sharpie.
  23. Nice shots! I won't comment on which one it is...I always get them wrong so I'll leave it to folks more knowledgable than myself. 🙂
