    I believe this a domestic mallard that is bred for the "crest" on the top of the head. aka Crested Mallard

    Swainson's Hawk in all the hawk photos (long, lean appearance, white throat, significant band on tip of tail). The sparrow is a messy Golden-crowned Sparrow.

    Welcome to Whatbird! The solid blue-green head says Mallard lineage. The white neck and breast says this bird is a domesticated Mallard species. Think of domestic mallards like dog breeds, which are domesticated wolves. Let's see what some other people think.

    This is a second-year male American Redstart. Full adult plumage starts coming in during their 2nd fall and is on full display by the following Spring.

    I believe the heavy black trailing edge of the wings makes it an adult. These pictures aren't at a good angle to see the top of the tail. It seems like a possibility for a "Northern", abieticola, given the location. The markings underneath are heavy, the throat is mostly dark, and I can kind of convince myself that there are rufous "dribbles" connecting the dark head to the belly-band. But I'm not making any guarantees. Anyway, I'd call it a light morph. An intermediate would be darker than that, and you're unlikely to see one around there.

    Young female Sharp-shinned Hawk for me because of the blotchy orange streaks on the breast and belly, thin legs, and steep forehead. The vertical streaking on the breast, streaked head/neck, and pale eyes make this a young bird.

    You're asking whether it's really abieticola? Seems reasonable to me based on what the photographer noted, though I'm not an expert at all.

    Looks good to me. That's as prominent a 'belly band' as I've seen. Nice Northern. I gotta get me one of those.

    Immature Piping Plover is correct. Note the pale appearance, black stubby bill, and orange legs.

    It would really help if you gave more specific locations. Alaska is a big state. #5 looks like a Kittiwake to me. #2 and #4, with the large windows in P9 and P10, and the small bill, look like Mew Gulls.

    Thanks for the great article everyone, helps a lot! Thanks, I was focusing too much on coloration and not enough on body shape.

    Too bad these weeds got in the road of this picture of a Northern Shoveler, which otherwise would've been a super photo. Still not terrible...

    Hard to tell, but I’d probably call these Trumpeter.

    Brewer's Brewer's Vesper Brewer's Vesper and Brewer's Cassin's is ruled out in pic #3 by the entire length of the outermost tail feathers being white -- Vesper.

    The bird in the first three pix is an adult (white wing bars, worn plumage) so, given that the bill is nearly entirely black, it has to be an Eastern Phoebe.

    You can even drill large holes in the log itself and pack the suet into them.
