    Unfortunately, we lost our snow this year so this is one from last Christmas, the local park. Also a local Snowy Owl.

    Looks like a large Snowy Elf Owl and a flock of ReinKildeer! Merry Christmas 😄

    I agree with leucistic American Goldfinch. I took these photos of one a couple of years on my feeder. They might have been twins separated at birth....er...hatch?? IMG_0633-001 by Wayne J Smith, on Flickr IMG_0429-001 by Wayne J Smith, on Flickr

    I don't think that's on the ABA list. Try the "Help Me Identify a Bird Outside North America" forum.

    If you had a white Christmas, post it here. If not, post a Snowy Egret, Snowy Plover, Snow Goose, Snow Bunting, Snowy Owl, or Himalayan Snowcock.

    This is a Vesper Sparrow... I think @The Bird Nuts was asking if you had more pictures of the other bird, which I believe is a Savannah Sparrow.

    I think its a hatch year bird, and a rather messy one at that, as it doesn't have the yellow eyebrow yet, etc... a case could be made for Vesper but I don't see any white in the tail and the eye-ring is not prominent enough for Vesper, so I'm pretty sure its Savannah. Most other sparrows can be ruled out - too slender, short-tailed for melospizas; bill too small, head too round for ammodramus; too streaky, patterning not right for spizella (Brewer's unlikely in MS). I think it can be narrowed down pretty well to Vesper or Savannah, and seems better for a young Savannah, but I'm not certain on that, I don't have a ton of experience with Vesper.

    NW New Mexico between Shiprock and Farmington. Caught these earlier tonight. Can anyone identify them? Merry Christmas!

    I agree with this now... for some reason I completely overlooked the fact that the bird had any color 😂 .

    Are these different birds? The first one looks like a Savannah Sparrow to me and the second one looks more like a Vesper Sparrow (white eye-ring, dark ear patch with pale wrapping around it), but I may be wrong.

    I think it looks good for a leucistic American Goldfinch. Cool bird!

Just stating that Brown Pelican should not be thrown out based on location alone as there have been many sightings in the general area in NOV/DEC of this year alone and more if you zoom out to include the NJ coast(not that far from Rockaway as the Pelican flies)
