  1. Hello! I keep seeing gulls flying about my house near Boise, Idaho and I'd like to add them to my yard list but I don't know my gulls... these aren't the best photos but can anyone definitively tell what kind of gulls these are? Thanks for your help!
  2. Perfect! That's what I was thinking but I wanted a second opinion before I added it to the yard list. I was waiting for a male to show up since they're so much easier for me to ID but this girl was all alone. Thanks for the help!!
  3. We get a lot of mallards and some wood ducks in the back yard (near Boise, Idaho) but tonight we had a new visitor! I'm hoping to get some help IDing this pretty duck! Please let me know if you have any ideas. THANKS!
  4. I just got back from a week in Alaska and I need help IDing a few birds! Please let me know if you can help out. THANKS!
  5. I got a video of it's call and checked today. The first one is definitely a Say's Phoebe based on the call.
  6. I need help with these ones... the first images were taken last week and the third image was taken today. Both seen near Boise, Idaho. Please let me know if you can help ID these birds... sorry for the bad photos. THANKS!
  7. Thanks! I really love photographing owls! Such cool birds. Let me know if you hear of anymore near Boise! 😉
  8. Yes, this was at Barber Park! I was actually looking for the Barred Owl and found this little guy. I saw the Great Grey Owl a few weeks ago at Hulls Gulch. (You can see more photos I took at instagram.com/stonich)
  9. Found a little owl in Boise, Idaho today! I was much smaller than a great horned owl. Please let me know if you know what species this is. Thanks!
  10. Thanks! I saw the red on the back of the neck and thought it might be an intergrade. He's been hanging out in the yard all day today!
  11. I just saw this Northern Flicker in my back yard (near Boise, Idaho). It looks like an Intergrade to me but I wanted to double check. I've never seen one before. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
  12. I just saw this little falcon flying around my neighborhood near Boise, Idaho. Please let me know if you know can ID it. Thanks!!
  13. Last week there were four hawks at the same time (one sharpie and three coopers). I think the bird in the photos above was in the yard again this morning.
  14. Thanks for the help. I seriously have the hardest time IDing these guys... I thought this was a sharpie. Haha. They hunt in my yard everyday! I only have time to get photos of them on weekends so stay tuned for more next Saturday. Haha
  15. I know I've been posting a ton of these sharpie vs coopers photos lately but I'm really trying to figure these guys out!!! 🙂I saw this guy this morning in my yard near Boise, Idaho. Please let me know which hawk it is! Thanks!
  16. Yeah, the robin was not as happy to see those hawks as I was... 😕 You're right! Seeing them both at the same time really made a difference. The most surprising thing was how much larger the Coopers was!
  17. Okay, that's what I was thinking. The Cooper's Hawk was MUCH larger than the other three. Definitely a first time seeing that in my yard. Thanks for the input!
  18. WOW! The yard is busy today! Just saw four hawks at once battling over a fresh robin kill. Three were really small and one was much larger. Are these Sharpies and Coopers?
  19. I've been seeing a lot of Coopers Hawks in my yard lately and this little guy showed up today. It looked significantly smaller than the other hawks I've been seeing. Is this a Sharp-shinned? (See today near Boise, Idaho.) Thanks!
  20. Spotted a hawk in my yard this morning (near Boise, Idaho). I was hoping I could get some help IDing this one. THANKS! I also noticed it was banded! I haven't seen that before... thought it was cool. 🙂
  21. Thanks for the feedback! Finally can add this guy to my new yard list!
