  1. I have a habitat(big Rubbermaid tote) in my basement for all these guys... just doing my part to save some species.🤪
  2. Based on the new pic angle... I will change my vote to Reeve’s Pheasant. Also , there is no way this is a Bobwhite as some others say... the portions of everything are not right and it has a white beak.
  3. Definitely not a Bobwhite. I think it is a Ring-necked Pheasant. The angle you are looking at it causing the white collar to be exaggerated and possibly flared out as a defensive gesture. Also if you zoom in on the head you can see some green iridescence that the Ring-necked has and not the Reeve's. Ring-necked Pheasant for me
  4. This is a second-year male American Redstart. Full adult plumage starts coming in during their 2nd fall and is on full display by the following Spring.
  5. I was totally blanking on the reddish eye/reddish billed and not thinking non-natives. Good call on the Chukar Jerry.
  6. Agree with a Flicker species. If it is routinely drumming on the roof or Sat Dish...it is not all that unheard of at this time of year. They are attracting mates and establishing territories and the louder the drumming the better. You can try to cover the favorite rooftop site with some type of sound dampening material and they may be frustrated and find a different site. Another option is putting a plastic decoy Owl up there to frighten it away. I've been through this a couple times...good luck. Edit to add: I just saw the OP's second post and seems it may not be your residence... guess ear plugs would work then!
  7. Yes a definite Red-throated Loon there.
  8. My take... I like Cooper's from this pic as well. Appears to have long rounded white tipped tail, legs thickness, and head size are good points. And yes the west coast Cooper's can have thicker streaking than typical birds. @cam... if you have any other pics, please post them.
