  1. Photos taken yesterday in southern Nevada. Northern waterthrush isn't common but isn't a rarity. I've seen a northern 1 to 4 times every year for the past 4 years. Louisiana waterthrush would be quite rare, the last one reported and photographed here in 2014. Thanks!
  2. At the time, Merlin ID'ed as yellow throated vireo. Later I increased the volume and ran it through Merlin again, same result. Carolina wren would be even crazier here. 🙂 As I mentioned, a yellow throated vireo WAS photographed and recorded here by several top people two days prior. It seemed quite an incredible coincidence. Also, I noticed on the Merlin app, under sounds for this bird, there are 4 calls, the second one sounds just like what I recorded, many fast raspy calls.
  3. Today in southern Nevada. Normally a yellow throated vireo would be crazy here but two days ago one was photographed by many experts here. Today heard what I thought was a vireo calling, started Merlin and it was very sure the calling bird was a yellow throated, which seemed a very strange coincidence. I increased the volume and re-ran it through Merlin, same result. Expected vireos here are Bell's, Cassin's, plumbeous. Thanks louder2.wav
  4. Today at a big lake in southern Nevada. The bird between the dowitcher and the gull. Dunlin? Thanks!
  5. Today in southern Nevada. I thought this was a bank, but that would set off a rare bird alert. Thanks!
  6. When I got home and looked thru photos, I said... that''s not a RB, it's a short-billed! I should've taken more photos! 🙂 For whatever reason, this marina between Nevada and Arizona has been a hotspot where a SB has been seen many times in the past.
  7. Today in southern Nevada. Sorry I don't have more photos. This was the only gull in the whole area and I blew it off as a a ring-billed until looking at photos later. Thanks!
  8. I assume this is the same gull I asked about a few days ago: https://forums.whatbird.com/index.php?/topic/26793-which-gull/ Photos below are from today at Lake Mead (huge lake in southern Nevada) The bird-in-flight photos are stills taken from a video and came out a little smudgy. Thanks!!!
  9. Today at a huge lake in southern Nevada. California and ring-billed are the only common gulls here. This single bird flew by and didn't stop. Seems to have an all-black bill. For what it's worth, Merlin gives the result of glacous-winged for most of the photos. Thanks!!!
  10. (the one on the right) This week in southern Nevada. Thanks!
  11. Oh I just looked at the range map for Lawrences, seems WI would be incredibly out of range. ?
  12. How about Lawrence's goldfinch for #2?
  13. Today in the mountains of southern Nevada (where warbling vireos are very common). Not sure about this one. Thanks!
  14. Today in southern Nevada. Not sure if this is a Cassin's or not. Thanks! (not sure if all the photos are of the same bird)
  15. Today in southern Nevada. Thanks!
  16. Today at a big lake in southern Nevada. Don't know if the bird in flight and on the ground are the same or not. Thanks!
  17. Today at a huge lake in southern Nevada. Thanks!
