  1. I agree,not enough brown and white mottling to make it a second year,and the full purple beak rules out third year...
  2. The last one looks like a saltmarsh to me, not a seaside.Heres a pic of a seaside for comparison
  3. It looks like an adult,I dont see any barring on it in the pic that would lead me to believe its a juvy. as far as male or female,both sexes are pretty much the same,there is a general rule that the female has a bigger "necklace" of brown feathers around the neck but that is not a reliable id point.
  4. There has been a Henslow there all summer reported in ebird repeatingly for the last two months.... for what it’s worth... I can give you a positive on it because I literally suck at sparrows...lol
  5. Heres a few pics of Black crowned second year bird another second year bird and a recent fledged one, note the eye color of them and here are a few yellow crowned second year recent fledged and a one about to fledge, biggest thing to notice is beak shape,the YCNH is much blunter compared to the sharp BCNH hope these pics help...
  6. Probably a warbling but see if anyone smarter then me(which is about everyone here) agrees...
  7. I am sure I posted this before but this Grackle was nasty to this Black Crowned Night Heron
  8. There was a pacific there around that time frame...... this was taken jan. 30th right there...
  9. female Rose breasted seconded...
  10. I crop in when I can, a good bird pic will have the bird slightly off center looking in the direction of the longer crop. as if its goin to fly in that direction. A good flight shot is the same thing,more space on the side it is flying to,less space behind it. a couple of examples this male towhee has been cropped to where the tail is almost touching the back of the pic,but leaves plenty of space in front for it to fly away... This Yellow Crowned Night Heron has been cropped to make it appear as though it is flying off the page.the legs are close to the back end of the pic and the head is slightly past the middle
  11. Scaup have white in their wings, maybe thats what you saw?... although they arent black all over like white winged
