    Gull Id

    I am not a gull expert at all but would agree with juvenile Herring Gull - just begiinning first winter plumage. In my onion too much brown all over to be a juvenile ring bill

    suet quality

    thank you all for your responses - just opened a new pack and it looks ok so am keeping my fingers crossed this was a one time thing. I use mine in 12-18 inches of tree branches about 3 inches in diameter....I drilled holes of varying depth and 1 inch in diameter. The woodpeckers have no problem with this and once in a whiile I put a perch on for other birds. I use suet dough in the main feeder and usually only woodpeckers and nuthatches use it. Black oil sunflower seed for others oh and it does not seem we have as many birds as well....woodpeckers and nuthatches and carolina wrens - oh juncos in the winter again thanks

    suet quality

    for several years i have been buying C$S suet at walmart....always good and always a hit with the birds....especially the peanut treat. then a couple of months ago i noticed a markable quality difference. Instead of the pliable suet I was used to - it was whitish and brittle. I used it anyway and the birds did not care....it was the consistency of suet dough at best. Lsst few times I have bought suet (C&S at walmart) it has been ok just wondering if anyone else experienced something similar ....i will not use it again if it reoccurs

    Help with Scaup ID

    while I am far from and expert...I do not see the difference in bill size nor the larger black tip that may be found on the greater. so I would say both males are lesser. But it is of interest to me that they are both found together. Just got back from Central Florida and took lots of pics and now will simply say i have both greater and lesser in the pictures. A local guide called them bluebills but they are definitely scaup..

    thank you both
  14. Numbers 1 and 2 are likely the same bird but i had to enhance No. 2 in order to get anything. My first thought was that these were goldfinch but the bill is not right for that. Number 3 is different. Thank you for your help 1 IMG_9029 small by Jim Carscadden, on Flickr 2 IMG_9024 small by Jim Carscadden, on Flickr 3 IMG_8996 small by Jim Carscadden, on Flickr
