  1. Thank you! I was wondering if it was a sick Cackling Goose with some kind of skin/feather condition. Nice to know that I was completely wrong. 😄
  2. Hello all, I wanted to see if I was identifying these birds correctly. That is, all except for the grey bird in the first photo. There was a Snow Goose in a flock of Cacklings and Canada Geese but I have not seen it in quite awhile. All photos were taken in Portland, Oregon at different times of the year. Thank you!
  3. Oh I see. Would these also be immature male Hooded Megansers?
  4. These comments 😄 . I am pretty near-sighted and know little about birds but I do know more than I did last year so that is something. I just saw this and thought, wow, that is the tiniest female Mallard ever.
  5. This bird shows up in the evening and perches on a tall tree. I was wondering if the brown-grey color indicates a juvenile. I also saw it catch and drop and then dive for (what I think is) the same fish over and over again. Is that normal behavior? It reminded me of a cat playing with a dead mouse. Thank you
  6. Hello all, I have seen large birds over this pond for awhile but was lucky enough to get some fuzzy pictures today. They move very fast. The first 3 pictures are of a mottled brown bird and the 4th and 5th pictures are of a bird with lots of white underneath. Can anyone tell me what they are? This is a pretty good sized pond that allows fishing and it seems particularly well-stocked with fish this year. Birds (Great Blue Herons and Cormorants mostly) and these birds are here often and they seem to be successful much of the time. Thank you!
  7. Thanks! I thought it was a Kingfisher at first since they hang out at this pond. I have never seen one of these and am on the lookout for the male.
  8. Near Portland, OR this week. It is from a distance with bad lighting and with a phone camera so the photos are not great. Beige crest on its head and a white underbelly. I saw a photo with a black and white duck next to one that looked like this so I assumed this was the female. Thanks for any help.
  9. Thank you. I never realized that mallards came in a variety of colors. I always assumed they were brown or with the green head.
  10. I think this is a Canada Goose but I do not know what the ducks are. The lighting is not great but the ducks seemed to be shades of mostly white, gray, light brown and black. Portland, OR today. Thank you!
  11. I thought all birds that looked like this were Canada Geese. Now that I know about Cacklings, I think that is what these are. They are smaller, have shorter bills and shorter necks. Am I understanding this correctly? Thanks!
