  6. Oh wait, now that I'm looking at it again, I think maybe this is a Northern Mockingbird?

  13. Black tern at Waterton Lakes NP, Alberta on July 22. What an acrobatic flier. In the second picture, I can't believe it didn't crash into the lake the way it was looking back. Even at a distance, it was a blast to watch.

  14. Agree with Red-breasted Nuthatch! Nuthatches are fun guys to watch. Listen to their call on the website, and you'll probably start noticing them even more.

  15. Welcome. That's a Red-Breasted Nuthatch. They hang out with chickadees, titmice, and other small feeder birds, and the feeding behavior you described is typical. Nuthatches are among the few North American birds who can travel down a tree trunk or even upside down along limbs. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Red-breasted_Nuthatch

  19. I pusillanimously pursue your pardon if I post no reply to this provocative pic. My reply could provide that portion of the population which seeks to prohibit free speech in the interest of what it deems to be political correctness with an opportunity to disparage my perspicacity. I encourage you to read "Churchill: Walking with Destiny" by Andrew Roberts. It will provide you with an appreciation for the man, his rhetoric, his political acumen, his deep knowledge of history and his indomitable character in the face of constant criticism from adversaries domestic and foreign.

  20. Richardson's Cackling Goose, B.h hutchinsii (the subspecies that usually occurs on the East) sometimes, but not always, has a frosty look to the back.

  21. No, that's a Canada Goose. Bill is too large/long for Cackling, and is just fine for a small migrant Canada. Also note how this bird looks "long". Cackling Geese are really compact overall. On a real Cackling, the bill will be REALLY stuby. It's of those "you know it when you see it" kind of birds.
