  1. Does this resemble what you saw? A blue checker domestic pigeon. https://www.google.com/search?q=blue+check+pigeons&oq=blue+check+pigeons&aqs=chrome..69i57j0.11358j0j7&client=tablet-android-samsung-nf-rev1&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8#imgrc=hKeR3I1sMwmqHM:
  2. That can also be a recessive sex link gene, found in many domestic birds, known as dilution. It was named that, as it dilutes all colors the bird possesses.
  3. That blue, sometimes called andalusian in chickens and pigeons, is also a dead giveaway for domestic fowl.
  4. Black Necked Swan, native to South America. Escapee probably.
  5. Sorry I missed this one. That is a beautiful purebred Pheasant, or Suabian, pigeon....domestic Rock Pigeon.
  6. Pretty much. And the eye ring is always present, in various colors, from black to white.
  7. Why isn’t that just a young Muscovy? I’ve seen quite a few in domestic flocks that look very similar.
  8. One more attempt. Could this be a Eurasian Skylark? Or again, wrong bill.
  9. Slightly larger than the Saffron Finches, so I ruled young Saffron’s out, plus they were slimmer. But they did have a very slight yellowish cast to them. That a possibility?
  10. It sure is. Just a SWAG. I have no idea.
  11. Do I see a band on its leg. If so, you can trace it by number. looks like a hungry racing pigeon. They can become extremely good pets. If you have a band number, google the National Pigeon Assn, or the American Union Racing Pigeon organization.
  12. Only thing I can think of is American Pipit, which I think is very uncommon in Hawaii.
  13. Can anyone tell me what this is: Seen early this month on the dry, west side of the Big Island. lots of mynah’s, Saffron Finches, Nene. Don’t think I saw any indigenous birds the whole week. Lots of wild goats and mongoose, which, along with the wild pigs, might be the reason. Than you. https://imgur.com/a/HW9kJ9E
  14. That’s a Racing pigeon. Go here: https://www.pigeon.org/bandlistings.php Looks like a raptor got it.
  15. Sure is dark. Might be melanistic. (Excess pigment)
  16. Didn’t work for me on first click, but second try worked just fine. Striking bird.
  17. Yes, domestic Crested Duck (Mallard).
  18. A fourth goose? Distant from the first three?
  19. Sure looks like one of my cousins to me. That tail band screams kinda cinches it for me.
  20. That tail on No 1 does confuse me , being so rounded. Maybe a juvenile white tail kite?
  21. 1st appears to be a Mississippi Kite. Not sure on the second, so won’t venture a swag.
