  2. I agree with young Red-shouldered. Harriers have longer wings with a different underwing pattern and a smaller head with a unique face shape. Young Cooper's Hawks have different tail, back, and head patterns, bright yellow eyes, longer tails, and shorter wings. Red-tailed Hawks have shorter tails, dark patagial marks, and they're usually bulkier with larger bills.

  7. This red-naped sapsucker was enjoying my yaupon holly berries. First time I've seen one in my area. Brownwood, TX is pretty far east for them.

  9. If you can, get more pictures if you see it again. That would be an insane bill for that bird. Here's what it should look like -> https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Acorn_Woodpecker/id

  10. Maybe it's an odd overgrown bill, but I know it was the bill because the bird moved to different places and always seemed to be using the bill to dig under the rocks searching for something. It was a very long curved bill. It looked very much like the woodpeckers we have here but much smaller - did not look like a juvenile; about the size of a robin. most mysterious. We've lived here since the early 70's and have never seen any bird like it before. Thanks for all your fast quick help. Any other thoughts are welcome.

  17. This is a young Red-shouldered Hawk. The tail pattern fits, as well as the wing crescents in the flight shot as well.

  19. yeah, that kind of has me thinking it's a domestic x wild but I sure couldn't say for sure. not a dumb question. It's been answered but, to expand a little... it's like chickens(as one mentioned) or even dogs. With the use of "domestic _____" it's kind of like saying domestic wolf when looking at a poodle. It really is no different. Their ancestors are wild mallards but in the poultry world, they're "breeds." A lot of them you find out in the wild are mutts rather than pure breeds but you'll find all sorts. The white on the front there is common with the swedish breed. This is not a pure swedish, which is why I kind of wonder if it's a swedish x wild mallard. But that's just speculation.

  20. With the yellow supercilium and the pale legs and the short tail, I like Savannah for all of them, including both birds in the first two pictures. But I could be wrong. Edit: Well, after being sniped by Blackburnian, I can't be wrong.

  21. It doesn't look white to me in the photo, but I wasn't there. I've never seen a leucistic (that's how you spell it) Sandhill either, but they do exist. http://majikphil.blogspot.com/2018/08/floridas-rarest-birdall-white-sandhill.html

  22. Can anyone ID this bird we saw in Delta, BC this morning? We tried Merlin on the image, but it thought it was a pigeon.

  25. Agree with Canadas

  26. Neither of them look significantly smaller than the others and the second is at an angle, so its beak is foreshortened. Both look like Canadas to me.

  32. I would say that all the scaups are greater (based on not having a peaked head). And I would say all the yellow legs are lesser (based on proportion of beak to head .. although I'm on the fence for the 1st and 3rd/4th photo.

  33. Sometimes they are in the trees, Charlie. Sometimes they are in the wind. I kind of object to the way they eat up the juniper berries and leave purple deposits on my flagstone pool deck!
