  2. Just looked up Molting.... Blue Jays go through one complete molt a year in late summer. This molt usually proceeds in an orderly fashion so that you barely notice that it's going on. But Blue Jays (as well as Northern Cardinals) often experience a complete molt of their head and maybe even their neck feathers. Nothing is wrong with the bird and the feathers will grow back. But for a period of time until they feathers return, they do look rather odd.

  4. We have marmots in New Mexico too. (By the way, @HamRHead, woodchucks are marmots.) Yellow-bellied Marmot by Jerry Friedman, on Flickr And ground squirrels. Queen of all she surveys by Jerry Friedman, on Flickr And more glamorous mammals, but I didn't get any pictures of the bear I saw a few weeks ago.

  14. Looks good for Caspian. The red bill with smudgy tip confirms it. Royal bill leans more toward the orange end of the spectrum.

  15. Agree with House Finch. Also note the curved culmen (upper ridge of the beak).

  18. That's a fresh juvenile Ring-billed. Small and thin-billed, and small structure overall. Nice looking bird!

  20. I am far from an expert, but they look to bulky and beaks are too big for Bonaparte's. Maybe Laughing Gulls?

  22. Thanks guys! I saw the goldfinches in the garden and looked up their song which didn't sound like this. Just looked up a fledging goldfinch and it's an exact match. 🙂 They must have gone into the garden to eat (they attack my zinnias and ignore the nyjer feeder) and left the little one in the trees right behind begging for food. i noticed the cardinal chirps after I uploaded. He was probably waiting for me to get out of the way so he could get to the window feeder.
