  1. Today in southern Nevada. At the time I thought this was a robin I had seen a few minutes earlier. Townsend's solitaires are somewhat common here but typically at much higher elevation. Thanks!
  2. Today at a big lake (kinda small nowadays from the drought) in southern Nevada. Merlin seems to think this is a Herring or Lesser black-backed. Thanks!
  3. Thanks, that was my impression (and Merlin ID) but I thought the bill looked too big.
  4. Today in southern Nevada. Western kingbirds are common here. Cassin's are uncommon. Any other kind would be quite rare. I photographed an Eastern Kingbird here last week. Looking thru kingbirds today looking for a Cassin's reported recently at this spot, I took many photos of every one since I have trouble telling Western from Cassin's. This kingbird seemed to have a large beak. Merlin says it's a Tropical. Thanks!
  5. Same audio, I just raised the volume 1382104044_NewRecording4louder.wav
  6. Indigo Bunting that eluded me so many times
  7. Some more photos if that helps... all are of the same bird
  8. Today in southern Nevada. Was recording audio of a nearby osprey and this bird shot out of the reeds and made this squawk. Thanks! bittern.wav
  9. Four sandpipers today in southern Nevada. Sorry I could only get photos into the sun. Sent to some friends and got the answers... least, western, maybe a pectoral. Merlin says dunlin. Thanks!
  10. Today in southern Nevada. Indigos are not common here but they've been popping up here and there recently. Thought I had my first one this year but a friend suggested it could be an immature blue grosbeak. Thanks!
  11. Today in southern Nevada in a wetlands environment. Nearby were cormorants, assorted common ducks, common yellowthroats, gnatcatchers, verdin. I was in this spot a while taking photos of an eastern kingbird (rare visitor here) and kept hearing this call I don't think I've heard before. Ran the audio thru Birdnet and Merlin and both couldn't identify. Thanks! what070321b.wav
  12. Today in southern Nevada. Thanks!
  13. Today in southern Nevada (dang it's hot). Silent bird, I keep wavering on the bill size. Thanks!
  14. Today in southern Nevada. Having trouble telling Western from Cassin's with any confidence. Western common here this time of year, Cassin's much rarer. But one Cassin's has been reported at a park a few times recently. Thanks!
  15. Ah thanks. There was a chestnut-sided photographed at that spot today. I thought I had accidentally recorded it when I was recording an ovenbird. I listened to the #1 song for chestnut-sided on the Audubon app and it sounded identical to me. I've seen that bird before but never heard.
  16. Today in southern Nevada. Rare but seems to be seen here every year. Thanks! whatwarbler.wav
  17. Today in southern Nevada. Rare in these parts. Thanks!
  18. Today in higher elevation in southern Nevada. Ash-throated far more common here. Thanks!
