  1. Looks good for Common Goldeneye. I think the bill is too large for Barrow's, and maybe too dark. Savannah, is quite yellow, but may just be a regional variation that strayed into your area.

  3. I wish you hadn't brought that up. Now I'm trying to see whether it's a Great Cormorant in costume.

  6. Hi. Earlier today, this bird was sitting on a bench outside of the Adler Planetarium, which sits on the edge of Lake Michigan in Chicago, IL. It was sitting pretty still and looked just different enough from our usual birds to notice it. It may just be a juvenile or female of some common species, but I couldn't pin it down with my internet searches. Thanks for any help.

  7. Just missed out on 100 species but got a county bird. https://ebird.org/checklist/S153371636

  8. It doesn’t appear obviously hooded, nor is there any obvious brown on the back from what we can see. Seems reasonable to conclude that it’s a Slate-colored in my opinion, but Slate-colored/cismontanus is always the safer option for Slate-type juncos on the west coast.

  10. I'd call it Ring-billed...but me and gulls aren't so good. BTW, lake Benbrook has a California Gull right now.

  14. California Gull is also very rare there I would guess. It’s definitely not a California Gull.

  15. Mantle color, upper wing covert color, bill shape and pattern, general body structure, and just the holistic way it looks like a Ring-billed.

  16. Based on bill morphology, it looks fine for a Tundra to me.

  20. Geese was my first thought because they’re flying in a line

  21. Actually, I just learned that one of the poets didn't think they were geese. She just wanted geese in her poem. That works in poems but not in eBird lists.

  28. Welcome, Peanut! That's an unusual place for a (an immature) Double-crested Cormorant to be. Maybe it's scoping out houses to go trick or treating at tomorrow?

  29. I have, decades ago and thousands of miles from my current home. Only one if I recall correctly. Of course, I did not get it today.

  30. Double-crested Cormorant, drying out their wings, no comment from me as to age. (note the secondary orange patch between the bill and the "bridge" of the "nose" of the bird, which tells you it's not a Neotropic nor a Great Cormorant at least).

  32. I bird species I saw often in Colorado but I have also seen 1 in Florida. Beautiful birds especially when your favorite color is blue. This was a tough choice as I have few photos that I really like. I bet you can tell this isn't the one from Florida. I miss snow.

  35. I see the Gray Gull is still present, and noticed on Anything Larus that there were pics from June of probably the same bird nearby.

  38. Sound very similar to House Wrens from around here, but not exactly. Maybe regional differences?

  41. Nobody on this forum (or anywhere else) was born knowing a thing about birds. For some of us, the learning curve is steeper or longer than for others. Don't let it get you down because even the best, most experienced birder is still learning stuff.
