  3. Thank you, thank you, I finally got one right. It looked a little ragged around the edges so I hesitated. All the best.

  5. this from another "luddite" - 70+ years old and just getting into birding the last oh 5 years or so. I do not have a smartphone but see the day when one will be required to survive ! I do have a dumbphone and get kidded about it all the time, ( oh be the way..it worked in parts of Canada where the smart phones didnt...could be the carrier but...grinning. That said I have not found field guides of any type all that useful in the field...perhap I am going about the wrong way but find taking pictures then opening them on my computer the best way for me to ID then....I do use a "field guide" then and the Internet...in the comfort of my home - there will be times when even that does not work so am doubtful that a mini book would work. I found Whatbird and think that the most amazing thing ever. Can post a picture and in minutes (usually) I have an answer that I then check once more on my less that field handy "field guide" Soooooooooooooooo guess I would say. I for one would not use a mini book field guide as I do not find the present less then field handy books useful to me. But as a last thing I would like to add that I did not pick up on any disrespect from the administrator...my wife does tell me I have the sensitivity of a rock but still..

  7. Yes to Golden Eagle. The Accipiter is a Sharp-shinned Hawk with the small and very rounded head.

  9. Looks like a Pine Siskin, and the other bird in the last few seconds a House Finch.

  10. I’ve been seeing a few Cacklers here in MO for the last week or so. Nice to see them back for the winter/migration.

  11. The bird in the first 3 pics is indeed a Richardson’s Cackling. The bird that’s swimming next to it in the other pics is not convicncing for another Cackler to me. Bill looks rather large and long, a decent amount bigger than the Cackling overall, and the back isn’t frosty at all. It may be a hybrid if not a really small Canada. But the bird in all pics with the really stubby bill, frosty back, and slight white ring on the neck is a slam-dunk Cackler. Congrats!

  12. Yes, looks like a juvenile Red-tailed. Pretty sure hawks don't have a special winter plumage.

  17. Maybe. I'm not sure about the subspecies ID if either of these. They do look a little darker and more strongly marked (especially the first one), but I'm not sure. I have a bit of personal experience with Belding's and just don't know if the coloring is quite in range for that ssp here. Belding's are definitely found in California as you said, but they're rather localized. They're not widespread throughout the state, meaning you can't expect to have them generally. I can't pull up an eBird map now, but I'd like to know if the spot these were seen is a known Belding's spot. Savannah subspecies are often distinctive, but there can certainly be some ambiguity at other times.

  20. Nice Verdin! I tried for one in Texas, but it just didn't work out this trip. Hopefully next time. The story ended with a full and happy cormorant.

  21. How did this story end? I went down to the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix yesterday. Good birds there, and some let you get a little closer than normal, probably because they like the plants so much. Here's a lifer for me: a Verdin.
