  1. Hey guys! So this is my third time I've thought I've gotten a Merlin. And of course these are my best pictures of it, which aren't great... Seen last October in the Florida Keys, during the "Hawk Watch" that goes on and on this day I saw at least 50 hawks flying over head....
  2. Not sure if these photos can give an accurate ID, but I took these back in October 2020 in the Florida Keys. I think it's a Juvi Herring Gull, what do you all think?
  3. bump.... here is one more photo, in case that helps? I've never had a no reply before...
  4. Saw these in the Florida Keys this past weekend. I first thought it was a Red Knot, but upon reviewing the photos on the computer, the bill looks too long. Now I'm thinking a Short-billed Dowitcher... Second photo includes Ruddy Turnstone and I think a Juvi Short-billed Dowitcher.
  5. Is this another Broad-Winged Hawk? or possibly a Swainson's? I think it's a white-morph so that makes it harder. But the number of bands on the tail is throwing me off. I saw him last November in the Florida Keys.
  6. The bummer news is I didn't get a new lifer for me, oh well... But the really cool news is, that if it's a Broad-winged Hawk, then I feel like it's a sign. These two photos are from my property in the Keys, and this bird kept watching me for a few days and would hang out where I was - and about 6 months earlier, I saved a Broad-winged Hawk (ID by the hospital) from the road and brought him to the bird sanctuary/hospital. He was released after he recovered and maybe this is a friend and heard that I'm a crazy bird lady and wanted to say hi. Here's the pic of my hawk friend on my lap! My husband couldn't believe I wasn't scared of him or worried about him being on my lap. I told him it never crossed my mind, all I could think about was getting him some help.
  7. they were taken about 1 hour apart, same location, so I did think they were the same bird, but I see what you mean about the different streaking on the underside. this is awesome info! thank you so much for the details!!!
  8. Is it too uncertain / I didn't get the right markers in the photos to be sure of which bird it is? Is there another bird that this could be?
  9. I believe this is a Merlin, he looked so small when I saw him fly into the palm fronds on the tree. seen in The Keys, Florida in November 2021
  10. Seen today in Salt Lake City, Utah. I searched online and I couldn't find any Common/Barrow's Goldeneyes that had this must white and a brown spot on it's cheek. I also looked through the other ducks that have been seen in the area, and this one (white head with brown cheek) doesn't look like anything else reported (long-tail, shoveler, mallard, scaup, ring-necked, bufflehead...). Anyone have any ideas?
  11. Seen in the Florida Keys in November 2021. I had to tweak the lighting a little because I took this photo in the dark, but this is the best shot I got... Any ideas? Thanks!
  12. Per eBird reports, both swans have been seen in the area I went birding - Heber City (40 mins from Salt Lake City) Utah, about 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately, they were really really far away, so I can't for sure see the yellow coloring on the bill to help. What do you guys think? These are two different sets of swans, but from the same day and area, along with other Mute Swans too - IT WAS THE BEST DAY!!!
  13. At the time I was taking this photo, I didn't even realize I was possibly looking at a Lifer for me. I was more focused on the beautiful Mallard & Geese and then snapped just one photo of what I thought was his female companion. Now, reviewing the photos, I think this is a Gadwall (duck on the left)! Seen in Heber City (40 mins from Salt Lake City) in Utah about 2 weeks ago.
