  1. Going through my archives. Pics taken at Lake Manawa, Council Bluffs, IA, back in May 2017. Is this a Red-shouldered Hawk? Forgive me if I've submitted these before. My poor memory is only surpassed by my lack of organizational skills.
  2. Would've been cool if it was a Goshawk. Never seen one of those before.
  3. Fairly heavily cropped and backlit shot. Taken this morning south of Council Bluffs, IA. The not bulky body rules out a Buteo (I think) and leans toward an accipiter. The streaky breast markings suggest to me it is an immature Cooper's Hawk or immature Sharp-shinned Hawk.
  4. Seen yesterday afternoon at Loess Bluffs NWR in NW Missouri. Are these two birds Wilson's Snipe?
  5. Seen yesterday morning at Loess Bluffs NWR in NW Missouri. Are these three birds Lesser Yellowlegs?
  6. Seen last week in NW Missouri. Is this a Wilson's Snipe?
  7. Just standing on the road. The bird was transiting from one pond to another.
  8. Seen at sunrise this morning at Loess Bluffs NWR, in NW Missouri. The very light cream (almost white) and dark chocolate (almost black) markings on this immature RTHA make me wonder if it could be a light morph Harlan's. Thoughts?
  9. Seen at sunrise this morning at Loess Bluffs NWR, in NW Missouri. This is the lightest Red-tailed Hawk (RTHA) I think I've seen. Is there enough evidence in this single pic to determine if it's a Krider's RTHA? Unfortunately, I have no other views to help support/oppose my guess.
  10. Seen today at Loess Bluffs NWR, in NW Missouri. Is this a Lesser or Greater Yellowlegs? If I were to guess, I'm leaning towards Lesser because the feet don't trail very far beyond the tail.
  11. Seen today at Loess Bluffs NWR, in NW Missouri. Are these Glossy Ibis or White-faced Ibis? I noticed in the first pic, the bird's eye appears green, but in the 2nd pic the eye appears red with a reddish area ahead of the eye too. Is one perhaps an adult and the other immature?
  12. What is the (in focus) duck near the top of this image? Pic taken 2 weeks ago in NW Missouri.
