  1. I believe this is a Western Sandpiper. Its bill was longer than the other SESA with it. Can you confirm?
  2. Thank you both. I’ll take your word for it.
  3. I don't have any concrete reasons, but it just didn't seem right for a pine warbler. This one definitely had a bold white eyering (I know immature pine warblers also have it). And from what I recollect, it had no wing bars. I also recollect seeing a thin bill (it probably appears thick because of the way I took the photo). Similarly, I think the white undertail you see might be due to lighting issues. The other birders with me floated the possibility of a Tennessee warbler (However, I don't think it was). Not sure if it helps, but here are two more photos:
  4. Does this look like an orange-crowned warbler? The bird was yellow-olive overall, had a thin/pointy bill, had a white eyering (did not see if it was broken or not), and appears to have yellow undertail coverts (from the photos). Even by elimination, I am leaning towards an orange-crowned. What do you think?
  5. No wolves in this specific location. We did see a few from a lookout point (also a mother grizzly & 2 cubs), and then a few in Hayden valley (had better views here).
  6. With the IDs of these two birds I should be all set 🙂 1) A female ruddy duck? 2) Swainson's Hawk?
  7. Wow. It could be the same rock 🙂 It was taken on the road to Slough Creek campgrounds (in the Lamar Valley area). Here is the full photo for little more context:
  8. Thank you akandula and akiley. Your assessments sound good to me.
  9. Seconded. The yellow eyebrow is also indicative of Wilson's.
  10. I would like your help to confirm/identify these birds: 1) Brewer's sparrow? 2) Western Tanager? It seems to show a yellow eyering, and that's throwing me off. 3) American Goldfinch? 4) A young Swainson's Hawk? 5) Red-tailed hawk? If yes, it must be a western subspecies, because they don't look like this here in the east coast. 6) A dark-morph red-tail hawk? (I was hoping it would be a golden eagle when setting up my scope) 7) This one may not be ID'able but thought to ask anyway
  11. Thank you for your thoughts. I ruled out green-winged teal because of the bigger bill, and the lack of buffy stripe at the rear (which I came to know only while doing this research).
  12. Are these cinnamon teals? These were seen at yellowstone.
