  1. the pink legs made me think Herring Gull but now I see that juvenile Ring-billed and California Gull do as well. Now I am even more confused!
  2. Southeastern Idaho, July 27th. Are all 3 of these Herring Gulls? EBird says rare for location.
  3. Seen 7/27/22. South Eastern Idaho Could this be a long tailed duck? Thanks!
  4. Date: Today, Location: Salt Lake City. 3 different flycatcher type birds shown below. This location on eBird has had many different flycatchers Identified there recently. Unfortunately no sound for any of these. Bird 1: Western Wood-Pewee? Bird 2: Bird 3: Another angle of Bird #3
  5. Location: Salt Lake City Date 4/22/22 Franklin Gulls are more common, but Bonaparte's are not super rare. Are these all Bonaparte's Gulls? There are nonbreeding plumage and breeding plumage. Thanks for the help! Not sure if I have some franklin's gulls here as well? Or Bonaparte's in Breeding plumage? not the best lighting but the beaks seem to be black.
  6. Seen July 21st, Wasatch Mountains, Salt Lake City, Utah Is this an American Three-toed Woodpecker? The alternative would be female Hairy Woodpecker. These photos show no barring on the back, but I read rocky mountain populations have less barring. I think I see just three toes. The patterns on the sides seem to be different then an Hairy Woodpecker. Never seen an American Three-toed Woodpecker before. Thanks for the help!
  7. haha, yeah not the best photo. I think we are seeing the front of the bird as it is looking to the right. My sister also had a video: video-1627163427.mp4
  8. My sister sent this photo to me. Images taken in Charlotte, North Carolina. Black and white warbler? really not too sure here. Thanks!
  9. Seen near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina on the sound side of the island. Not sure if this is an American Black Duck or a Hybrid? Thanks for the help!
  10. Seen 6/15/21 Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina. These photos were the only photos I got of each bird. Early morning made for tough photography conditions. Thanks for the help! 1. 2. is this just a weird angle on a eastern towhee?
  11. Seen 6/14/21 Shenandoah National Park , Virginia. Pretty sure this is a Acadian Flycatcher. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
  12. Just got back from a big USA road trip and I am just staring to go through my photos. These two photos show birds photographed early in the morning with low light. Seen near Lexington, Nebraska 6/7/21 . Thanks for the help!!
  13. oh wow, I feel silly for asking considering how often I see California gulls. ! I just did a bit more research and I am guessing these are second summer California Gulls? Still getting these different plumage patterns down!
  14. Seen Yesterday, Salt Lake City . Thanks for the help!! Closeup Some of the same birds in flight
  15. Seen today, Salt Lake City, Utah I am guessing Dusky Flycatcher, but still have a long way to go on flycatcher ID. Thanks for the help!
  16. @Tony Leukering What do you mean by "First we’d" , Thanks for your help!
  17. Seen today - Near Salt Lake City, Utah. eBird shows reports of a common tern at this location. I think I might have found it. Compared to a Forster's Tern, I think the breast seems to be more grey and but the beak is a bit in the shadows and is hard to get the detail to be confident. Or Is my bias toward wanting to find a common tern clouding my judgment here? Thanks for your help! Lower left side, with Caspian Terns. Close up with a large crop
  18. Photos taken yesterday, Great Salt Lake Utah. This group of sandpipers were off in the distance. This was the best photo I could get, the lighting makes it more difficult to ID. Thanks for your help! The far right bird looks a bit different then the rest. another photo I think this is the same group.
  19. Here is a closeup of the first three from left to right.
  20. Taken Today - South Shore of the Great Salt Lake, Utah There have been a variety of sandpipers spotted here recently. This photo might have a couple different species. Is the far left a Sanderling? The others it seems must be either Western Sandpiper, Baird's, or Semipalmated Sandpiper. I am a shorebird rookie. Thanks for the help!! ( I do have more close up shots of individuals, let me know if need more photos)
  21. Seen today, Salt Lake City, Utah I keep going back and forth between Lincoln and Savanna. What do you think? Thanks!! These are the best photos I have, I never saw it's front side.
  22. Taken today, Salt Lake City Utah I believe these are Long-billed Dowitchers (this would be a lifer). Not super confident with shorebirds. Thanks for the help! With Black-necked Stilt
  23. @AlexHenry Thanks for the feedback! I should have mentioned that I was not sure if this was the same bird or not. Just to clarify, you think all three photos are Anna's? I was thinking and hopping it was Anna's because this would be a lifer!
  24. Photos were taken last week, in Strawberry Arizona (northern Arizona) The lighting was pretty harsh, I wish I could have had a better angle and light. The photos were cropped and brightened up, but the shadows still throw the colors off and can make things tricky (originals photos are at the bottom). According to eBird the likely choices were Anna's or Broad-tailed. Thanks for your help! #1 #2 #3 . . . . . in case you wanted to see the original photos. #1 #2 #3
