  1. This bird was photographed in NW missouri last week. Is it an adult female or an immature male?
  2. Unfortunately this is the best photo I managed to get. It's heavily cropped, and was never in focus to begin with. The other shots of it are even more out of focus.
  3. Seen 2 weeks ago in NW Missouri. Could this be a Wurdemann's Great Blue Heron?
  4. No pinkish red skin between the bill and the eye, eye appears black, not red, legs appear darkish, but not redish. That's why I'm still thinking Glossy.
  5. Updating (correcting) my archives, again. I placed this image in the White-faced Ibis folder, but I think it's actually a Glossy Ibis. Photo was taken in October 2022 at Loess Bluffs NWR in NW Missouri.
  6. I didn't either. Apparently they only display it when there's a predator nearby and/or they feel threatened
  7. I'm sure you're right. I did photograph a Swainson's a few days earlier on the other side of the lake. What threw me was the Merlin App heard two different thrushes. Regrettably, I deleted that file, so can't recall what two thrushes were suggested by Merlin, but I definitely remember that Swainson's wasn't one of them.
  8. Seen yesterday at Lake Manawa in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Both images were taken a few minutes apart in the same area. But I'm not certain if they're both the same bird.
  9. Seen today in my Bellevue, NE, backyard. Initially thought it was a Yellow-rumped. Now i'm thinking Chestnut-sided? It's be a lifer if it was. These are the only two images I managed to capture.
