  1. Red Shouldered Hawk over my neighborhood in San Antonio.
  2. Ladderback Woodpeckers. There was a female nearby as well. San Antonio, TX.
  3. This was take at Choke Canyon Lake State Park here in Texas which is about an hour south of San Antonio on 11 March. I know it isn't the best of pics to try to go off of, but the reason I suspect Osprey is because it was flying around over the deeper water of the lake. I was only able to get one shot of him before he passed too far out of range. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks, Mark
  4. This was take at Choke Canyon Lake State Park here in Texas which is about an hour south of San Antonio on 11 March. I'm still working on getting my water fowl identification skills down.
  5. Took these just north of Choke Canyon Lake State Park here in Texas on 11 March. Choke Canyon is about an hour south of San Antonio. There were four birds flying around, 2 Harris Hawks (pictured), a Turkey Buzzard and another hawk I am not sure of (picture of a solo hawk), it may be another Harris.
  6. Awesome. Thank you very much. It was the Wigeons and Teals I was uncertain of what they were. First seen for me of these birds.
  7. Thanks folks, Much appreciated and thanks for the indicators to look for.
  8. Thanks folks, much appreciated.
  9. 29 Feb, Mitchel Lake Audubon Center, San Antonio, TX. Mitchell lake has several large ponds and the larger Mitchel Lake. These birds were on the lake in an inlet area that is kind of marshy. I think they were Green Winged Teals, based upon what I can tell and info from another birder I spoke to earlier who said they were on this area of the lake. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mark
  10. 29 Feb, Mitchel Lake Audubon Center, San Antonio, TX. I believe these two be Greater Yellowlegs. These were two different birds shot at different locations on the ponds and lake at the center. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks, Mark
  11. I took a series of pictures at one spot at Mitchel Lake Audubon Center here in San Antonio, TX on Saturday 29 Feb. There were a ton of Northern Shovelers that day, but many here I don't recognize. I am not up to speed really well on water fowl. I also recognized in the pictures the Black Necked Stilts. I think the one picture also has an American Avocet, and there were some green winged teals in another area (at least I think that is what they are :). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Mark
  12. Thoroughly confused on this one. Early morning on 29 Feb at Mitchel Lake Audubon Center here in San Antonio, TX. I have not seen a mostly white hawk before. I had thought maybe it was a Red Tail, but as I zoomed in the picture, I think (not 100% sure) that what I am seeing is not the breast, but rather the back side of the hawk and it is looking back over its shoulder. I could be wrong about that, but the picture is confusing. I am still leaning towards Red Tail and the darker area across the white being the belly band, but just want some other opinions please. Thanks, Mark
  13. Audubon Orioles at Mitchel Lake Audubon Center in San Antonio, TX.
  14. Thanks all and thanks Charlie for the welcome back. I did get some better pics today of this bird in flight. He was still hanging around the same area, exhibiting the same behavior of moving from tree stand to tree stand. At times, yes his tail did appear red, with a band on the tips. But, in a different angle, the undertail is white along with the wing feathers. So, I can see Red-tail Dark Morph (Harlan's) (thanks Akandula) according to the reference pic in Merlin. What do you all think of that analysis? Good call?
