  1. Saw this bird today in Joshua Tree National Park, California. Thanks for your help!
  2. Coots on the run by Mark Featherstone, on Flickr
  3. Thanks for the kind comment. Hey, "sub-adult", I like that!
  4. This juvenile (or should it be immature?) Cooper's Hawk could get out of this tree thanks to two crows standing guard.
  5. Seen yesterday in the SF Bay area. I'm betting that this is an immature Cooper's Hawk, but I'm happy to be corrected. It seemed to be taking weary refuge in a tree that also supported two crows. If the hawk tried to leave the tree, the crows would harass it. Thanks for your help!
  6. Hahaha! Never saw that coming! πŸ˜‚
  7. Seen today in the SF Bay area. Sorry for the poor photo. The white cheek patch suggests a Canada Goose, but the body looks very different to me. Very short neck, for one. Thanks for your help!
  8. Another bird seen today in the SF Bay region. I've never seen it before (in my limited birding experience), and it seems to be a California Thrasher. Please let me know, and thanks!
  9. Oh that’s great. Many thanks!
  10. Hi all, This photo was shot today in the SF Bay area. This bird was being harassed by a White-tailed Kite, but didn't seem to pay it much mind. I think it's a raptor but can't make out what exactly. Sorry the photo is not the best. Thanks for your help! PS: This bird was bigger than the White-tailed Kite. Is it a Red-tailed Hawk perhaps?
  11. Wonderful! Thank you both very much! 😁 PS: And there were indeed a ton of (mature) Red-footed Boobies in the trees and in the air.
  12. Wonderful! Thank you both very much! 😁
  13. Hi all, I took these (poor) photos a few days ago on Kaua'i (Hawai'i). My best guess is an immature Brown Booby (first shot) followed by a mature one. Your help is much appreciated.
  14. Wow! That’s not just an answer. It’s an education. Thank you!
  15. I’m currently seeing a lot of this type of bird on the island of Kawai in Hawaii. Many thanks for your help!
  16. Thanks! Though I should add that I can't be certain that it's the same bird as in the first shot. It was within a few feet of it, but I can't be sure.
  17. Here's another shot of a presumptive Cackling Goose nestled between Tundra Swans and with some Sandhill Cranes in the background. It is quite small compared to the swans, and the beak is very short compared to a Canada Goose. What do you think?
  18. Here is the best shot I could find of the possible Wilson's Snipe (taken quite accidentally). What do you think? Thanks!
  19. Many thanks! I'll look to see if I have a better photo of the possible Wilson's Snipe.
  20. Thanks for the quick confirmation! 😁
