  5. Lastly, to get to Bachman's Warbler, you'd have to ignore the extensive white in the tail and the strong white supercilium. Bird ID is not just finding a character or two in the field guide, it also involves ruling out EVERYTHING ELSE.

  6. That is actually a Tennessee Warbler. Note the lack of wingbars, the gray head with dark eyeline and white supercilium, the white underside, and the green back.

  8. A local wetland has a low number of waterfowl this year but a good variety. This Northern Pintail flew in unexpectedly while I was photographing some Bufflehead.

  19. Not a Hutton’s. It’s a Plumbeous/Cassin’s. I’m not sure that Cassin’s are very common in SE AZ so I’ll go with Plumbeous.

  20. Hey all, I took these photos last August in Augusta, ME. I thought it was a juvenile Bald Eagle but I just want to be sure that its not actually a Golden Eagle. Thanks for your help!

  21. Finally stumped Tony Guess you need to brush up on your TOYS-R-US breeds. (Oh, guess they're an extinct species by now too)

  25. That's a Dark-eyed Junco! Sorry, I did not read what you were asking. I do not know about the subspecies.

  26. it's a very rare phenomena that few have captured on film... certain bird species produce an excess of electricity(kind of like when we shock each other with static electricity) and the result is a brief laser show out the birds back end. Usually only happens under dry conditions. It's been known to start a forest fire or two.

  27. Agreed. See my avatar for an adult male.

  30. In the main ID forum @Charlie Spencer just referenced an old PBS documentary which I also saw (well worth watching out for) about the intelligence of Corvids and it reminded me of this photo. I find these birds absolutely fascinating.

  35. Leucistic Chipping/Clay-colored Sparrow. This ID is usually not that hard, as Chipping Sparrows have black lores and Clay-colored don’t. However, this sparrow is leucistic just at that region! It’s probably a Chipping Sparrow due to the noncontrasty face, but a photo of the rump would be useful. Female House Sparrow - note the plain brown overall and pale eyebrow.

  36. This is a Lesser for the reasons Jerry Friedman mentioned, especially the fact that the white wing wing bar is only present in the secondaries, and stops before the primaries. That's diagnostic, if I remember correctly. Head shape is variable and hard to assess in one photos.

  37. These are female/immature Red-breasted Mergansers. As you were saying, Common Mergansers have a white chin, cleaner border between the head and breast coloring, and a shorter, thicker-based bill.

  38. Agreed with first-winter White-crowned. Immatures have a similar head pattern to adults but have brown and gray (not black and white) stripes.

  39. This is actually a Chipping Sparrow. The black eyeline that goes through the eye all the way to the bill is a diagnostic ID feature (a Clay-colored’s eyeline stops at the eye and doesn’t go to the bill).
