  2. WOW! The yard is busy today! Just saw four hawks at once battling over a fresh robin kill. Three were really small and one was much larger. Are these Sharpies and Coopers?

  10. Green Herons are like chameleons 😄 They change position and look like a totally different bird! I've been confused by them many times. Plus it looks like yours is stretching in a stiff breeze (or used too much hair gel).

  15. We don't know all that much about the Iceland Gull complex- a lot is unknown. But current believed taxonomy is this: Iceland Gull is a polytypic species with three subspecies: 1) nominate glaucoides- of Europe which is thought to occur in the East on rare occasion. All white primaries with no gray whatsoever. But that ID is extremely complicated. 2) Kumlieni- ("Kumlien's Gull") Adults with slight gray in primaries, and immautures with mostly pale primaries- Your birds' primaries are a little darker than I would like for a typical kumlieni 3) thayeri- the bird formerly known as Thayer's Gull. Much darker overall in immature plumages with darker brown primaries. The problem is that there are many birds that fall somewhere in the middle of kumlieni and thayeri. We don't really know what that means. A lot of birds fit nicely into one or the other, but others not so much. It does seem like a gradient to some extent like you mentioned. There'll have to be a lot of work done before we really get to the bottom of the complex.

  16. I've been seeing a lot of Coopers Hawks in my yard lately and this little guy showed up today. It looked significantly smaller than the other hawks I've been seeing. Is this a Sharp-shinned? (See today near Boise, Idaho.) Thanks!

  17. Life is good. At least, life is good if you're not the robin. It's great when you can get two frequently confused species to show up together for comparison!

  18. The first is a Sharpie and the second is a Cooper's. That must have been quite the sight! Great shots!

  20. Indeed it is a Sharp-shinned with the very rounded head, dark nape and cap, and relatively short, even tail.

  33. I would rather do my own root canal with a pair of Vice-Grips, a Dremel tool, and a bottle of Jack Daniels*. I run a fantasy NASCAR league nine months out of the year; that's close enough for me. Call me when I retire in six or seven years and have the time to do the job properly. * Available combined in our convenient 'Root Canal Gift Pack', with birthday or holiday packaging. No stamps, please. Five or ten cent deposit required where applicable.
