    That is an Archangel, known also as a Gimpel. The colors are intense. Not an uncommon variety of domestic show pigeon. They come with copper or gold bodies, and various colored wings, including white as pictured here. But, pigeons with white wings occur in a number of breeds. It is usually called magpie, or saddle, or white wing or pied. And thanks for the vote of confidence. At least I am knowledgeable on something, I think. 🥴

    No, that's not right. All of these pictures (make sure to expand the picture) are of either pure Mountain Chickadees or Mountain Chickadee X Black-capped Chickadee hybrids. I am sorry but I can't help because this individual is not very distinctive in intermediate features. Maybe another person can help. This link can maybe help: http://birdhybrids.blogspot.com/2014/06/black-capped-chickadee-x-mountain.html

    Ah! Seems kinda of redundant. Is there a non-Pacific northwest?

    I'm awfully late to the picture, but this fella has been around for the past week or so. Maine is killing it on the rarities again this year, I don't know if that's something to be afraid of.

    In the second photo you can see the chestnut colored "shoulder" patch.

    I would agree with Cordilleran Flycatcher due to the olive color, the teardrop-shaped eyering, and the two wingbars. Spearfish Canyon is in the northeast range limit of the species. Pacific-slope Flycatchers are not found there.

    Went to a heron rookery. Got Little Blue Heron, Cattle Egret, and Great Egret. The Little Blue Heron was a lifer for me.

    Thanks, excellent link and reference to goto to research before just posting pictures. Especially as I can now learn what may be features to go one way or the other. And I always have to accept that even after the efforts to get a clean shot, do the research, you are left with pure or hybrid, but sometimes it's just a bird and that's ok.

    Maybe "Pacific Northwest" (Oregon, Washington, Idaho, British Columbia)? The OP was in Seattle, after all.

    Look into cormorants, species would depend on your location. I regularly see double crested cormorants flying in the way you describe

    Agreed. In this photo you can see the orange crown that gives it its name.

    I think both are Eastern Towhees. The "drink your tea" can vary a good bit.

    This is a domestic Rock Pigeon. Maybe an Archangel breed? @Pigeon, the expert at pigeon breeds at Whatbird, might tell you more.

    I did a quick search on the feather atlas and it came back as a Red-Crowned Parrot. https://www.fws.gov/lab/featheratlas/feather.php?Bird=RCPA_secondary_adult Maybe an escapee?
