  1. 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.
  2. I was totally blanking on the reddish eye/reddish billed and not thinking non-natives. Good call on the Chukar Jerry.
  3. 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!
  4. Yes a definite Red-throated Loon there.
  5. 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.
  6. This is Barn Owl. Hawks and owls are common hwy roadkill birds unfortunately... from going after prey on medians and chasing Rock pigeons into underpasses... seen plenty of them on the shoulders but no Barns.
  7. Easy to call immature male Lesser Scaup here... when one knows what they are looking at and not just guessing. Sometimes better not to comment and see the actual ID and learn something.
  8. These 2 are not always that easy to separate without hearing song. Yes there are ways, but even in the hand they sometimes prove difficult with the overlap.
  9. Not a peewee...the more I looked at this pic it a few days back, I was thinking best to leave at Traill's FC as well.
  10. I'd go with Green Heron for the 2nd. Striated is accidental/rare there. Rock Dove seems right for the first bird.
  11. They are usually shown when they are roosting.
  12. LOL... yes I did. Here it is...
  13. I'd say 3-5 are the same bird on the same rock. The lighting is playing tricks on you. I am think they are Glaucous-winged x Western Gulls but the lighting is tough.
  14. If it was definitely bigger than a Killdeer , I would go with Wandering Tattler.
