    Great Black Hawk in Biddeford Maine!

    I should note here that the Great Black Hawk is still around (now up in Portland, ME). It has also been confirmed as the same bird that was first seen in S. Padre Island Texas!
  2. Saw this hummer at the SD Zoo today. I got a flash of pink in the gorget. Photo sleuth is calling it a Broad-tailed but I’m skeptical as it’s out of range. Any thoughts?

    Raptor ID

    I think it's good for a Red-shouldered. Location is always useful especially as hawk migration is underway.

    Sandpiper ID

    I’ll give a suggestion, my thought is Pectoral Sandpiper.
  5. Saw this bird in Biddeford Maine today. Any ideas

    Field sparrow?

    Y... Yes. Pink bill, looks like a long tail, so FISP is the best bet. I will say what appears to be a black eyeline threw me off, but I think that's a lighting issue.

    An oldie but a goodie

    Awesome, thanks! That's what it was deemed the last time I posted it. I only brought it up again because there was a Western Kingbird spotted in Maine last week, and I needed the potential lifer boost to get the motivation to go out and get it, which I missed it by 1 day...

    Wouldn’t white edging on tail feathers suggest Western?
  9. I posted this photo years ago on Whatbird (before the crash) and I had an assumed response which I have lived with to this day. Anyway, this bird was photographed April 4th 2016 in San Diego, CA. Input would be greatly appreciated. Kingbird ID 2 by Seth Davis, on Flickr
  10. I'm awfully late to the picture, but this fella has been around for the past week or so. Maine is killing it on the rarities again this year, I don't know if that's something to be afraid of.
  11. Is it really politics? It seemed they acknowledged that their human-based rearing methods was resulting in Whooping Cranes that were not attending to their young as they should, thus resulting in a non-sustainable system. Teaching birds to migrate is one thing, but it's a part of a system and having birds be able to move is one thing but teaching them to be parents is another that they were not capable of.

    Great Black Hawk in Biddeford Maine!

    Using underwing primary covert patterns it was determined that this is the same bird that was seen in Texas earlier this Spring!
  13. Great Black Hawk, Biddeford ME by Seth Davis, on Flickr If accepted, this will be the 2nd N. American Record, and obviously the first for Maine!

    Laughing Kookaburra?

    I saw a reddit post of an iBird screenshot of a Laughing Kookaburra in the North American iBird App. I checked and sure enough it is in the species list of N. American birds on iBird Ultimate. Is this an easter egg or something? I mean it's an awesome bird don't get me wrong, I was just a little surprised to find it.
