  5. This looks similar to a Cayuga duck? There are different variations of color so i would suggest it as an option.

  6. It's a Hermit Thrush. Brown Thrashers are larger and longer with longer tails, longer and thicker bills, white wingbars, and yellow eyes.

  7. By the way, Cackling is MUCH, MUCH more likely in Asia than is Canada on multiple grounds. Aleutian Cacklers winter in Japan in numbers. Japan also has records accepted in eBird of minima and Richardson's, and there's an accepted eBird record of minima from Korea. While obviously unlikely, a Richardson's making it to China is not out of the question.

  9. This is my type of thread. I bird all the random spots. Bald Hill OSP: https://ebird.org/hotspot/L10033079 My patch. The only time it was birded by other people was when there was a Worm Eating Warbler.

  10. Coyotes never attack. If they start to run at you, Remember your a human, and pick up a rock and throw it at them. That’ll scare them away.

  13. Spotted this at Topanga State Park NW of Los Angeles couple years back, but just went through some old photos and found this. Any feedback would be helpful.

  14. Juvenile Red-tailed -- it's got a whacking huge wing panel. At least, that's what it looks like to me.

  15. 1. Hermit Thrush. Looks how dark the breast spots are. 2. Lesser Goldfinch, note the large black cap, and the shape of yellow on the breast, among other features.

  16. Nice capture! My guess would be that the white spot is caused by leucism. ?

  17. Definitely Pacific/Winter, seems to be on the Pacific side of the spectrum. Would like audio to confirm since either is possible.

  18. Redhead would be more likely I believe.

  19. The last two photos are of a Bay-breasted. The first bird appears to be a Pine Warbler (thicker bill, different yellow hue, gray flanks).

  20. For a gull that is obviously an adult that is bigger than Ringer with: mantle color similar to that of Ringer, underside of far wing tip black-and-white, pink legs. There just aren't options other than Herring. Take things one-by-one. Study all the features. Don't get sucked into "gulls, they're so hard." They're not, really.

  21. Welcome to Whatbird! What a great first post. I think we have a winner. https://www.google.com/search?q=cayuga+duck&safe=active&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjB4v3foq3tAhWD_KQKHWrYCFIQ_AUoAXoECA8QAw&biw=1467&bih=999

  22. Removing any unwanted sounds/frequency’s to highlight the birds sound without distorting it.

  23. Thanks, I had a suspicion it might be this subspecies, but I have only seen this subspecies a few times, and not very well at that. A pretty rare subspecies for my area.

  26. That would be great, but we'll see haha https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4350569 ? P950 seems like a good option, if nothing better comes along in the meanwhile! The game changers for me with the P1000 over the P900 are (in this order): greatly improved viewfinder (I never used the P900 viewfinder, and I almost exclusively use the P1000 viewfinder), auto to manual focus thumb switch (almost as good as back-button focusing), 4K video (I personally use this for IDing mostly), and the extra zoom. P950 has all but the zoom! (Plus RAW of course, if you like photo editing.)

  27. Many of them are wrong a lot. There are more people who have less experience there.

  28. And a more reddish brown that the Hermit's grayish brown. Hermie is an interesting bird to show up at a feeder. I've had feeders in SC for almost 20 years and have never had one near them. I get Brownies all summer. I'm a bit jealous

  29. Yellow-rumpled seems to be common...

  30. I agree with your assessment. It feels off for a Barrow’s. Lots of white in the wing as well. Common or hybrid, probably?

  32. Now that Thayer's has been lumped, if you change your entry to use the species-level Iceland Gull entry, it will go back into review. In fact, you can always send something back into review by changing some aspect of the entry, either adding or changing text or adding media. 1 - Obvious HETH 2 - I hate swans 3 - See above 4 - Obvious BLBW 5 - Obvious ICGU (senus lato) 6 - Obvious COHA

  36. Iv been to Aransas several times, although I've not been on the photo boat trip from Matagorda Island before iv heard its worth the time and money. Personally i have seen them along Heron Flats trail, along the auto tour road ( also Eagles nest along the route) and out on the tidal flats you can see from the Big observation towers. also seen Green wing teals, least grebes, red headed ducks, herons one the jones lake viewing platform. you should see this time of year lots of Ospreys and Vultures. i also recommend Estero Llano Grande State Park only a few hours drive from Aransas. really cool smaller park with tons of birds around.

  40. Finally!!!! Common Redpoll. I almost ignored this flock of 50+ birds I drove by, thinking "More American Goldfinches", but then I've never seen a flock that big of them. Turned around and they gave me great looks.
