  2. Someone submitted a Turkey Vulture (Northern) Cathartes aura aura/septentrionalis in our region of eastern Ontario which is rife with them. It was listed as a rare bird species for our area. What would be the difference between a Cathartes aura aura/septentrionalis and Cathartes aura septentrionalis? My pic that I took yesterday, what category would it fall under?
  3. Hmmmmm. That pic is mine, my partner has a pic from a different angle and the white streak runs through both sun and shadow. Are they leucistic, or do they lose the white?
  4. Good to know also. Thanks When I zoom -in on the pic it looks like someone or something took a white magic marker to a portion of the wing.. Could I be?
  5. Good to know but what's up with the white- whatever.
  6. These as Yellowthroats? First 2"pics taken yesterday, second 2 today. Braeside Ont.
  7. Again I will disagree as I Do know the difference in size , naked eye and camera and these were not swallow size, but raptor size, so we will agree to disagree. Thank you for the input tho๐Ÿ˜Š
  8. I am saying they were Large birds. In my naked eye, not camera eye, LARGE raptor size birds over the Ottawa River and I do have pics of tree swallows, so I have to disagree and I grew up with barn swallows on a farm in. Manitoba, so I do know the size, which is why I sent the far off for perspective. 100's of feet up, or more. Sorry, not swallows.
  9. no they were LARGE birds...raptor size....way up there
  10. 3 birds of same species taken mid July. Long way off. Larger one has extremely long wings...seems twice the size of the body. Over river near Braeside Ont. Thank you.
  11. It appears to have a bit of a hooked bill....taken end of July at Braeside Ont.
