  3. 0ld shot with a b500, when they are right outside my window all day, I take them for granted. I should put my upgraded camera on them.

  6. Great-tailed, very common here in northern N. M. I'm sure I uploaded my shot of them in the parking lot of a well-known Arkansas-based superstore, so you get a more natural-looking one. Common, one of the first birds I learned as a kid in Ohio (beyond robin, sparrow, blue jay, cardinal). Much less common here, but these were here.

  15. Pale eyebrow over dark eyeline. Clear malar stripes / 'moustache'. Overall falcon GISS. Streaking and markings wrong for Peregrine or Kestrel. Bill isn't large enough in relation to the head for accipiter or buteo, and bill markings fit.

  18. California Gnatcatcher! My first decent photo of an adult male! Not the typical habitat you think of when it comes to them, but there was some sage scrub nearby.

  21. I'm visiting my Grandfather in Montana for a week, and trying to squeeze in birding whenever I can. Won't really have opportunities for lifers, but always a bunch of fun birds up here. https://ebird.org/tripreport/141651

  22. He’s actually borrowing the rf 100-500, but I think he’s gonna but it for himself soon(sorry if I screwed this up connor!)

  23. I agree. White-throated Swift has a lot of black underneath and has longer, narrower wings. Violet-green Swallow is much closer, but it has more white on the head, behind the eye, and more on the lower back (hard to see in these shots). Also it seems to be rare in that area at this time of year.

  24. Caution is definitely warranted here, and as the OP said, voice recordings would help, but I’m leaning Brown-crested. There is lots of gray in the face, rufous is limited to the primaries (not necessarily diagnostic), and the bill seems within range of BCFL and too large for Nutting’s. That being said, I have never seen NUFL.

  26. Greater Pewee... I was birding some high mountains in the far south of Arizona years ago. All was very quiet except for the warm wind in the tops of the trees making them sound as if they were a slow flowing river. Looking down on the trail I walked I could see bare footprints of immigrants working their way from the south to some place they were dreaming about. I began thinking about Cochise and the last bit of land he occupied when, for the first time in my life I heard the haunting song of the Greater Pewee. https://www.audubon.org/field-guide/bird/greater-pewee listen to their dawn call. This was a life experience I'll never forget.

  27. Least Flycatchers have always avoided me for some reason. I've heard so many of them, and only got brief views and never pics before. The ones I found today were being just as annoying, but at least they popped out in the open (albeit in bad lighting) for a few seconds after chasing them around for almost half an hour. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/588636981 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/588636991

  31. This. Merlin’s never look like this. Try to find a photo on eBird of one that looks even remotely similar.

  32. they were taken about 1 hour apart, same location, so I did think they were the same bird, but I see what you mean about the different streaking on the underside. this is awesome info! thank you so much for the details!!!
