  7. There have been two White-throated Sparrows in my favourite birding spot by my place, which given their infrequency out here is enough to trip the ebird quantity filter. There were three, but the adult has left, leaving two young ones. They're a ton of fun to watch as they play and explore, and over the past few days one of them has been exploring its singing abilities. Today it finally has the song down, in a cute little tentative whispery voice. I got some audio of it to mark the occasion. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/511017601

  8. Honestly, this bird looks better for a Rufous-winged Sparrow in my opinion.

  11. Common bird, but since i live out in the country, I don't usually see them. Yesterday, I was in the car, and a male landed close to me. I was able to take multiple photos of the bird.

  12. Confirmed. Looks like it would be fairly rare this time of year.

  13. And those rows of holes in the tree are what sapsuckers typically make. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/news/a-woodpecker-is-putting-rows-of-holes-in-my-tree-will-it-hurt-the-tree/#

  14. Remember, even the best birders get some birds wrong.

  15. For the first question, go to a species page. Let's take the Cinnamon Teal, for example: https://ebird.org/species/cintea/ At the top-left (top on mobile), click "World" and enter a different region. Typing in "Clark, Nevada" yields this page: https://ebird.org/species/cintea/US-NV-003 Under the "Statistics" heading, you can see the number of observations in that region. As of now, in Clark County, the Cinnamon Teal has been seen 9,342 times. 596 of those observations have a photograph and 1 has an audio recording. If you want data for a specific hotspot, you'll first want to go to a hotspot page (e.g. Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve): https://ebird.org/hotspot/L209342 ...and then click Cinnamon Teal: https://ebird.org/species/cintea/L209342 And this time, you can see that 6,951 of those observations in Clark, Nevada are specifically at this hotspot. Once you're there, you can actually click "Change species" and view data on any other bird for that hotspot without going back to the hotspot page. As far as eBird is concerned, it's one observation. Someone else may be able to answer this question in regards to records committees, however.

  20. 1: Sharp-shinned Hawk, I believe. 2: I'm gonna tentatively say Broad-winged Hawk, although juvenile Red-shouldereds can look similar.

  25. I’d hang an inexpensive feeder first to see what shows up. Use black oil sunflower seed. Fill the feeder only about halfway, and scatter a couple of cups of seed around on the ground. After a couple of weeks, replace the seed in the feeder. Give it at least a month to see what happens I would NOT put out suet. You’ll attract gulls, which will intimidate the smaller birds.

  31. Looks like a Leucistic Greater White-fronted Goose or a GWFG hybrid with Snow or Ross's. I wouldn't call it from this pic.
