  1. Welcome to Whatbird! "Audubon strongly supports properly sited wind power as a renewable energy source that helps reduce the threats posed to birds and people by climate change. However, we also advocate that wind power facilities should be planned, sited, and operated in ways that minimize harm to birds and other wildlife, and we advocate that wildlife agencies should ensure strong enforcement of the laws that protect birds and other wildlife." Audubon's Position on Wind Power
  2. Looks like Lincoln's to me. Buffy breast, sharp black streaks. Stay tuned.
  3. You can always report subspecies on eBird by hitting the + sign for new species. People often don't do it. I don't know about the reviewers in Ontario, but the ones here want very good support for Canada or Cackling subspecies.
  4. They don't look that way to me. There's actual white in and around the belly-band that's noticeably lighter than the tan breast and belly.
  5. So this is an unusually dark light morph? Or just more evidence that the three-morph system doesn't do justice to the variation of western Red-tails?
  6. I think we have to call your bird an intermediate morph, but I don't remember ever seeing one that color, and I've been following the Raptor Id group on Facebook for a while.
  7. Maybe one that had caught a Snow or Ross's Goose or white domestic fowl.
  8. Welcome to Whatbird! Meadowlark sounds good to me too. The location might help determine whether it was Western or Eastern or could be either.
  9. Guess my brain is out of whack for songs. Thanks!
  10. Any thoughts on this? Open riparian woods in EspaƱola, N. M., March 18. https://clyp.it/ltamj0kq
  11. My method for remembering the Aechmophorus grebes is "'Western' starts with the same letter as 'white', 'Clark' is similar to 'black' and 'dark'--and that's backwards."
  12. You're asking whether it's really abieticola? Seems reasonable to me based on what the photographer noted, though I'm not an expert at all.
