  2. The hummer? I don't know -- aging hummers takes criteria not easily seen here. (Mostly whether the bill is hard or still partially soft.....) It could just as easily be an adult female as well.

  3. Our dachshunds did that once, one of them running off with my Dad's monster 16" black crappie.

  7. I do a lot of hiking and I don't usually have a camera that I can take bird pictures with - so plan "B". I love to see various critters I pretty sure most of us do! I think this marmot was smiling for me!

  8. Yes, Downy on the left and Hairy on the right. Now you have a photo that you can refer to that shows the sizes of both compared to your feeder. 🙂

  13. Taken this afternoon: When I was finished fishing, I tossed the heads and guts in the direction of the Herring Gulls and this type of bird which was also hanging around the dock. I need an ID for this bird as I don't remember seeing it before. Funny story: While I was taking a video of the birds fighting over the fish parts, two Herring Gulls stole two of my small fish and ran off in opposite directions. A friend an I noticed in time and ran after them while yelling. Both birds dropped the fish and we were able to recover them.

  14. Some are probably Western based on bill length, but I am also seeing dunlins.

  16. This is a Yellow-crowned. Probably the easiest mark to work with is the fairly small white spots on the secondary coverts that extend as a line on the outer edge of the coverts. Black-crowned will have larger spots with no edging on the feathers.

  17. I can't hear much of anything on the first one. The second one does have chickadees -- that's a gargle call, used for intra-specific interactions. I'm not sure if Mountain Chickadees use them, but if that's what you have down there then I guess they do.

  18. The streaking is probably juvenile plumage, actually.

  21. Hypersonic Hummer- Prototype XF-1000H achieves hypersonic speed shortly after liftoff with its aftfart vectored thrust exhaust port calibrated for maximum acceleration. This configuration reminds me of the North American XB-70 Valkyrie.
