  1. Seen in eastern Nebraska back in June 2017. What's this Vireo? Or is it a Warbler?
  2. Seen in eastern Nebraska back in May 2017. What's this Vireo? Or is it a Warbler?
  3. Seen back in May 2017 at Credit Island, Davenport, IA.
  4. Seen back in May 2017 at Credit Island, Davenport, IA. It was hiding in the shade, so these are the best 2 pics I managed to capture.
  5. It was seen yesterday afternoon in NW Missouri. Although it seemed almost too large to be a Swallow, there were no other birds around to compare size. It was alone on this power line, preening, and completely uncaring about my pointing a camera out my car window at it.
  6. Least Sandpiper? I don't recall it being exceptionally small--aren't Least Sandpipers about the smallest of them? Reviewing my non-edited pics, there were no other birds nearby for size comparison. Tough to remember the size of a solitary bird from 5 years ago.
  7. All pics were taken in late August 2016 at DeSoto NWR near Missouri Valley, IA. I'm leaning towards Semipalmated Sandpiper.
  8. Still digging through the archives again. These three pics were taken in November 2017 in NW Missouri. Is this an immature Harlan's RTHA? If it is an immature Harlan's, which morph?
  9. Sorry, digging through the archives again. These two pics were taken in December 2017 in NW Missouri. Is this an immature Harlan's RTHA? If it is an immature Harlan's, which morph?
  10. Shots taken in NW Missouri in December 2019. Sharp Shinned Hawk or Cooper's Hawk?

  12. Is this immature RTHA a light morph Harlan's? It was seen in NW Missouri last November. The bird was back/side lit, so the belly band spotting may seem darker than it really was. Still, the spots appear darn near black to me.
  13. Seen last November in NW Missouri. All of my pics are of it looking back over it's shoulder. So I have no front shots. Based on the tail stripes, I'm pretty sure it's not an immature RTHA.
  14. Digging through the archives and ran across these pics. I never classified this scruffy Sparrow. I don't think it's an immature bird because it doesn't have the yellow fleshy gape (right word?). Maybe it's scruffy looking because it recently bathed? Images were taken in NW Missouri in October last year.
  15. Digging through the archives and ran across these pics. I initially called it a Peregrine Falcon, now I'm thinking I was wrong. I'm now leaning towards Merlin. Image was taken in NW Missouri in September last year.
  16. I never even thought to count toes. Playing devil's advocate, if the toes were in mud/under water, how else could you tell? Because honestly, when I compare pics of Sanderlings and Semipalmated Sandpipers, I really can't see a difference. What other feature(s) should I look for?
  17. Is this even a Sandpiper at all? It was seen along with a bunch of Lesser Yellowlegs in NW Missouri back in April last year.
  18. Both pics are the same bird (if I remember correctly). Pics taken in NW Missouri in April last year.
