  1. Or upload it to a hosting site such as soundcloud.com or clyp.it and post the link here.
  2. Agree with Coop. Merlins' tails are black with narrow white bands, not gray and black with the gray wider than the black as this bird has. And their wingtips come pretty close to the tips of their tails. They're also streaked underneath, not barred, and they don't look capped.
  3. A good way to share a recording is to upload it to a site such as clyp.it or soundcloud.com and link to it here.
  4. I'm hoping for Bald. Big bill, head + bill bigger in comparison to tail than Golden would have, pale mottling on the wing linings (immature Golden has white on the bases of some or all flight feathers), more pale on the tail than immature Golden would have (I think), no gold nape on the perched bird, and the tarsi look bare.
  5. I wonder whether the third one is molting out of the plumage seen in the first image in this search. (The site is subscription-only.)
  6. Welcome to Whatbird! Lark Sparrow was my first thought too.
  7. Good heavens, that never occurred to me. Red-billed Wood Hoopoe, alias Green Wood Hoopoe?
  8. And especially the pattern of light underwings and dark flight feathers.
  9. For those of you who've been in suspense, I was told at xeno-canto that it's a Western Wood-Peewee.
  10. Orilla Verde National Whatever-it-is Area, Taos Co., N.M., on a steep slope with trees and scrubby bushes. Sorry about the wind, which makes the low-pitched buzzes at the beginning of the vocalization hard to hear. Ignore the Spotted Towhee. https://clyp.it/igr5dkkx
  11. It's the 2014 edition (and when the first edition came out, there were no Lessers up here either).
  12. In addition to range, I think we can see the longer wings, the lack of warm buffy color, and the placement of the white bar farther from the wingtip that make these Common. The habitat is fine for Common Nighthawks in northern New Mexico, where I am. By the way, in my Sibley the regular range of Lesser in N.M. goes well north of where it should. It should barely get halfway up the state, as shown in the eBird map. https://ebird.org/map/lesnig?neg=true&env.minX=&env.minY=&env.maxX=&env.maxY=&zh=false&gp=false&ev=Z&mr=1-12&bmo=1&emo=12&yr=all&byr=1900&eyr=2019
  13. Welcome to Whatbird! There's a good chance that it's a pigeon. The best way to post pictures here is probably to upload them to a hosting site such as Flickr and put the link here.
