  1. No, that is an Invisible Gull. It is a very special gull only found in Arapahoe County, Colorado.

  8. Seen July 21st, Wasatch Mountains, Salt Lake City, Utah Is this an American Three-toed Woodpecker? The alternative would be female Hairy Woodpecker. These photos show no barring on the back, but I read rocky mountain populations have less barring. I think I see just three toes. The patterns on the sides seem to be different then an Hairy Woodpecker. Never seen an American Three-toed Woodpecker before. Thanks for the help!

  9. Looks good for a Northern. Yellowish wash, throat streaking, and an eye stripe that narrows towards the back.

  10. That’s because there are only three toes. Lifer confirmed. Congrats!

  13. Structurally, the bird looks beastly. It’s bill is pink with a black tip, sharply demarcated. It’s got bright white primaries at the beginning of March. All of these factors point to GLGU.

  14. No, it’s a Yellow-crowned. Bill shape strongly suggests YCNH, among other things.

  17. Definitely has Glaucous Gull genes in it. Don’t know if it’s pure or a hybrid, though it looks fine for a pure one to me.

  18. Hmm...I'll have to send you a few photos I have that, to me, look like empty sky.

  19. Maybe.... It's just a tad out of range though, don't you think? 😛

  21. Photo taken this morning, Aug 6, on Skidaway Island, Chatham County, GA. I'd like to call this a Northern waterthrush. There have also been recent eBird reports of the Louisiana waterthrush for the Island. What do you think?

  22. Nuthatches have longer bills, bold face patterns, and they don't perch completely upright like this. They climb up and down (upside down) with their bodies parallel to the branches.

  25. Depends on which subspecies you’re looking at. Dorsalis (Rocky Mountain ssp.) has a clean white back, pretty much.

  26. It's a pure Glaucous Gull, definitely not a hybrid.

  28. I just("just" at this point was 2 hours and 30 minutes ago!) figured out the manual focus! I could not figure it out I couldn't get it to work. I would read or watch something and it never came out the same as someone else. This morning though I realized that you have to flip the little focus mode selector, it is around the AE-L AF-L button(see photo). For some reason I just could not see it, and I always thought people were either talking about the dial thingy up to the right or the AE-L AF-L button, so of course nothing ever worked for me. So far I really like the manual focus, it is a bit slower than using auto, but I really like it. And I will definitely use it for birds that are on wires, well hidden in the trees, stuff like that, things the auto focus has a lot of trouble with. @Clip I think your camera uses the same type of battery as mine. And the reason I bring that up is that the p1000 uses a different one. It comes with a cord to charge it in your camera though(and no, it does not come charged.) till you can get more batteries and a charger for them. Also you will need(unless, unlike me, you never loose a lens cap) another lens cap, and a bag to keep you camera in too. Just a few thing you probably need to take into account in your budget.

  36. Wouldn't there be at least some barring on the white patch on the back? The speckled forehead seems to match Three-toed, but I'm really not sure.

  39. I took about 30 photos using manual focus, here are a few: These are all unedited. I never could get the auto focus to focus on a wire!
