    WA Trip Report- June 2018

    Birding Trips was one of my favorite forums back before the crash, so I thought I’d help in the effort to make it popular again with a quick recap of my trip to WA state this past June. There were some truly great reports on here back in the day and I hope to see some more in the future. I’m far too lazy (and busy) at the moment to write a full report with photos so I’ll just list the lifers I saw and include a quick comment about them.

    Red bird—tanager?

    This is a good bird this time of year. I would report it.

    Arizona Birds

    Any other shots of the thrush? Honestly, my first impression was Gray-cheeked, but given how unlikely that is, it could very well be a Hermit.

    Swainson's or Hermit Thrush?

    Indeed. A very good bird this time of year in the Carolinas, but they do turn up occasionally.

    Yellowstone birds

    Yes, all finches are Cassin’s and the Sparrow is a White-crowned.
  10. My impression was Spruce.

    Crested grouse

    Yes, Ruffed.

    Wren confusion

    I’m struggling with this bird. Why isn’t it a House Wren? I’m torn between House and Winter.

    Falcon challenge

    I’d say Peregrine as well.
  14. Yes, that’s a Western Meadowlark.
  15. Agree with 1. Anything other shots of 2?

    Aplomado Falcon?

    Cool bird.

    Mystery raptor

    Agreed. Also, not to doubt the validity of the sighting, but I have seen people tricked by fake GH Owls before...

    Awful awful pics of a black bird

    This is a Brewer’s Blackbird.
