  1. Mmmm... although I may be seeing a chin strap on the last bird.
  2. First is tough, but I’d say breeding plumage Red-throated Loon. Second looks good for non-breeding RT.
  3. It is. Dusky grey, lemon yellow, distinct white cheek patch. No doubt for me. @AlexHenry
  4. Not a Hutton’s. It’s a Plumbeous/Cassin’s. I’m not sure that Cassin’s are very common in SE AZ so I’ll go with Plumbeous.
  5. Agreed. The “Bonaparte’s” are actually Laughing.
  6. Agreed. Missed getting a photo of one of these on my trip.
  7. Wow. I’m jealous. One of my dreams to have an excellent birding yard like the ones mentioned. I think I’m around 80. I live in a very residential neighborhood in Raleigh NC, although we do live on a very small lake. Highlights have been Common Goldeneye, Canvasback, Spotted and Solitary Sandpipers (every spring on flats), Lesser Yellowlegs, and Blackpoll Warbler. We do occasionally see Pine Siskins, Purple Finches, and Red-breasted Nuthatches. Also, the rarest, is NC’s only photographed “Oregon” Junco. In my other yard (mom’s side), I had breeding Mississippi Kites. Far cry from goshawks and Golden Eagles though!
  8. Agreed. Fun birds. Excellent camouflage.
  9. Fulvous-Whistling Duck, Barnacle Goose, Tufted Duck, Little Egret, Common Ringed Plover, Northern Lapwing, Great Gray Owl, Montezuma Quail, Northern Goshawk, Little Gull, Mangrove Cuckoo, Shiny Cowbird, Black Swift, American Three-toed Woodpecker, Kirtland’s Warbler, Pinyon Jay, Cave Swallow, Bicknell’s Thrush, Lapland Longspur, Connecticut Warbler, and Tricolored Blackbird. I’m sure there are a ton more. That’s just what I can think of at the moment.
  10. I believe these are Black-bellied Plover.
