  1. Today in southern Nevada. Just checking since both are lifers. Thanks!
  2. Well thanks. I thought it was a Lawrence's goldfinch but another birder seems to have called this a pine siskin and I got an UNCONFIRMED from eBird when I submitted a checklist with photos, which made me seriously doubt what this was.
  3. Today in Las Vegas. Red-shafted flickers are common here this time of year. I've never seen a yellow-shafted. Not sure if this is a "yellow-shafted". Seems to have the tan face, gray crown, red crescent on the back of the head. Thanks!
  4. Several unusual gulls in southern Nevada today (Sabine's gull, Franklin's gull, Bonaparte's gulls), among the usual ring-billed and California. Not sure about this one. Thanks!
  5. A few days ago at a huge lake in southern Nevada. I thought this was a red-necked phalarope but some well-known local birders are reporting a RED phalarope, and darned if I can tell them apart in this plumage. ? Thanks!
  6. Yesterday in southern Nevada near the mountains. This location is known for Bell's breeding. In the summer it seems only Bell's are possible. Starting early September, either one is possible. Is this a Sagebrush? Thanks!
  7. Today in Las Vegas. Thought it was a kingbird but it's far smaller. Thanks!
  8. My first thought was scaly breasted munia. I used to live in Goleta and would see them at the Ellwood Mesa
  9. Today in southern Nevada. All of these are blue-winged teals? Four ducks total in a small pond. All photos are of the same 4 ducks. Thanks!
  10. Today in southern Nevada. Sharp-shinned hawk? Was very tiny compared to an obvious Cooper's hawk seen nearby today. But Cooper's breed at this spot. Thanks!
  11. Today in southern Nevada. Very far and into the sun. ? Seems to have wing bars like a nighthawk. My impression was it was much bigger than a lesser nighthawk, also it was flying very high. Thanks!
  12. Today in higher elevation of southern Nevada. Noticed (I thought) a rufous on a hummingbird feeder that was NOT shooing other hummingbirds away. Every time I've seen a rufous they've been strenuously guarding their spot and chasing others away. Later got closer photos of one that seems to be smaller than a rufous. May be just wishful thinking as I've tried to knock a calliope off my list for quite a while. Is the one on a branch with green background a calliope? Thanks!
  13. Was hoping for a fox sparrow today. Today in Las Vegas. Thanks!
  14. Today in southern Nevada. Rare here. Thanks!
  15. Today in Las Vegas. Was with about a hundred lesser goldfinches. Not sure if lesser or American. Thanks!
  16. Plenty of Lincoln's and Savannas today. Wasn't sure about this one. Southern Nevada today. Thanks!
  17. From a distance really thought I had my first golden eagle. Today in southern Nevada. Thanks!
  18. Big wind storm and temp change brought in some unusual birds. (Day ago in southern Nevada) I thought this was a hermit thrush. The day before, an ovenbird had been seen. I realized this bird looked very similar to the ovenbird photo. Thanks!
  19. Today in Las Vegas. Summer (blue background) and western tanager? Thanks!
  20. Got over 70 species today and can't think what this is. Today in southern Nevada. Thanks!
  21. Today in southern Nevada. Dark bill, broken white eye ring, white at base of bill. Thanks!
