  1. one other nice thing about the Cornell site are the maps they have the first being the normal range map but one that i use more is the sightings map - gives you a much better idea of if the bird had been in your area. and i too agree with osprey...have seen them ( individually an in pairs) just about everywhere i have traveled...at least in the US. They are somewhat distinctive once ID'd. The almost white head with brown eye line (paraphrased from Cornell) and the strong hooked beak.
  2. are the red headed ducks in this bunch buffleheads as well?
  3. saw this bird....think it all the same bird or type...in Irving Nature Center Baltimore Co MD on October 24 - any help appreciated 1 Irving 2 by Jim Carscadden, on Flickr 2 Irving3 by Jim Carscadden, on Flickr 3 Irving 1 by Jim Carscadden, on Flickr
  4. one question...i have had a bird identified as a juvenile northern harrier a the Henderson Nevada Bird Viewing Preserve. the only white patch it had...based on my photos was on the top of the tail
  5. akandula...i just did see it ...thank you
  6. hmm my guide makes the rough legged hawk look different so I looked it up in Allaboutbirds - Cornell and there have been no sightings in the past few years anywhere near Las Vegas. As I mentioned this was from my hotel room in Vegas. But who knows..thanks
  7. These are from Las Vegas earlier this week. It was rather hot outside so I took these from hotel window - part of the reason for poor quality. It was so hot - I saw a roadrunner - nice one..but only running he did was from shade to shade 1 what kind of hawk..these two are the same bird Vegas Hawk by Jim Carscadden, on Flickr Vegas Hawk by Jim Carscadden, on Flickr 2 could this be a Cackling Goose or just plain Canada Goose or something else? They seemed more brown than the ones we see here in Baltimore County Vegas Goose by Jim Carscadden, on Flickr thank you...
  8. I have seen an anhinga with its wings spread...my icon..but was told it was drying its wings after being in the water
  9. thank you all - the lack of the males is what really had/has me mystified. One more for the books....earlier this year there were no male hummingbirds - now they are back. So perhaps the male house finch will show up soon too
  10. When I first sas these....6-8 of them I thought they were house finch but in the last few weeks...it they are house finch there have been no males. They eat BOSS all day long several lbs a day. I just wanted to get another opinion of these. I do not believe these are the same bird 1 IMG_9998 by Jim Carscadden, on Flickr 2 IMG_9995 by Jim Carscadden, on Flickr
  11. well I guess she had second thoughts - did not see the female in or out of the nest for a while..well over a week. So this morning I checked - she had built a nest but not used it.
  12. I saw that video and was amazed at how many were feeding at one time. Mine tend to be a bit (understatement ) territorial and I went and got a second feeder but had to take the first one down in order for them. - i have at least 4 but think 6. Males for the past month as well...earlier it was only females. Will put the second one back up today about 100 feet away from the other and see what happens
