  4. Pretty Ugly? Oxymoron defined like Jumbo Shrimp. The Roseate Spoonbill I miss Colorado but birds like this and being able to see them often helps.

  7. One of the coolest wildflowers I've run across. Know as Corpse Plant, Ghost Pipe & Indian Pipe. It has no Chlorophyll which accounts for the pale coloration. It obtains it's nutrients by forming a symbiotic with fungus growing in the root system of certain trees. The fungus obtains nutrients from the tree's root system & then the flowers get nutrients from the fungus. Kind of a three way partnership!

  8. All righty then! This afternoon I consolidated all the suggestions. They fell into three specific topics - Identification, Field Craft, and Resources. There were also a handful of miscellaneous tidbits. For the most part I left each suggestion as originally phrased, with credit to the original posters. I corrected spelling and grammar, and I reworded a couple of items for clarity. I think the best approach will be to create a discussion for each of the three main topics. That will allow new ideas to be added where they fit best, and will keep each discussion to a size that won't intimidate readers. Then I'll create one general discussion that has links to each of the three specific topics. I'll also include the miscellaneous ideas in the general one. Once that's done, I'll ask @Aveschapinesto pin the general one here, and unpin this discussion. I'll also link to the general one in the existing 'How to submit an ID request'. Are the alternative suggestions for how to format this? I'd like to wrap this up this weekend, so don't sit on your hands, or feathers, or whatever...

  20. SoCal range is good. Medium brown over light brown, darker brown-gray wings and tail, round head, dark stubby bill, dark legs, yellow eye. Looks like the AAB and Macaulay photos of a Bushtit to me. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Bushtit/id

  24. Don't feel bad - this is one of the most confusing birds for so many people, often thought to be a large sparrow.

  26. If you look carefully the tips to the rectrices are completely white. The yellow below could easily be a reflection or photographic effects as I have seen many EAKI photographs with what looks like yellow below. It’s an EAKI.

  28. Head shape, head pattern, and how the bill meets the head are sufficient to ID this as a Coop.

  29. Thank you! What I've shared so far are only the ones I have identified [or hope that I have]. I still have a bunch that I'm trying to ID. πŸ™‚

  32. It’s got blue plumage so is definitely NOT a juvenile. This is an immature male and was hatched last year.

  33. If I saw that here, up north in GWGU-land I wouldn't have the slightest thought it'd be something else, but please wait for expert confirmation.

  41. Looking back at some old photos from when I knew little about cameras, so not a great pic. Was taken from quite a distance and I didn't see the RW blackbird until I downloaded the photo. RW blackbird harassing a northern harrier. Taken in Glacier NP several years ago.
