  3. In the "Help me Identify a North American Bird" forum: If you select the filter to show threads with "most replies" first, go to the last pages where there are a lot of threads that never got Identified... It's time to identify them or at least bump them up (which is what I have been doing).

  4. I doubt Augusta National allows House Sparrows on the premises.

  5. Without better photos, I'd call these small Canadas. Canada Geese vary tremendously in size; here in Colorado, a large Canada can be nearly double the size of a smaller one (most of this variation is based on subspecies). Also, the bill looks very long and I would expect a Cackling to be stubbier overall.

  6. Song Sparrows have very strong dark malar stripe, much stronger than other melospiza sparrows (Lincoln's and Swamp).

  11. All right everyone it is time to be serious, NO more ridiculousness! If everybody keeps posting in threes poor Aveschapines will be so busy deleting posts he might leave, and we would loose the greatest moderator ever. Now lets talk about something important! Now the difference between Eastern Screech-Owls and Western Screech-Owls...Now that sums it up, the difference between Screech-Owls is that one lives in the west and one lives in the east.

  18. 1 I think so. 2 I don't think that is a Black-and-white Warbler to much grey. It looks more like a molting bird to me.

  20. Red-tailed Hawk is correct. Note the very bulky build, faint belly band, and red tail.

  21. Yes, I think those are correct.

  22. It's a Song Sparrow. They don't always have that black spot on their streaked breast.

  23. Agreed. First photo is of Least, others are predominantly Semipalmated with a few Least mixed in.

  24. March 2017 - Ivory Gull on the Flint River in Flint, Michigan. Without a doubt the sketchiest place I have ever birded - the kind of place you don't feel comfortable carrying binoculars and scope around, but you can't leave them in your car either - Flint makes Oakland CA seem super nice. Felt pretty strange to see such a cool bird in the midst of depressing urban decay...

  25. Least Sandpiper in the first photo, but I think the other photos are Semipalmated Sandpiper, as they are more grayish than brownish, paler overall in color, dark legs and short straight tubular bills.

  30. ...or cameras! Okay so maybe this was during the practice rounds--Mon-Wed? I don't know about the bird. My first thought was Northern Mockingbird but I'm really not sure.

  31. This gull is far too bulky and its bill is much too big for a Thayer's. I like Olympic Gull (Glaucous-winged x Western Gull hybrid) more on the Glaucous-winged side of things. Wait for more opinions.
