  1. The Female version of the woodpecker at the nest hole has the exact same length beak..... it has me puzzled..... could it be a misplaced Ladderback? But looking at picture I would guess that is is not as the only other woodpecker with a longer beak than the Nuttall's and Ladder-back is the Hairy and none of these have a white patch on the back ruling out Downy AND Hairy.
  2. I think I have two species here, I labeled the ones I think are Nuttall's but I am confused about the one with the longer beak on the tree by the nest hole. All Northern California near Sacramento.
  3. I am guessing by size and what we have here that is it Robin, Mockingbird, Kingbird, Tanager....I have actually seen a mockingbird dive bomb a cat and make of with some hair! the pine needles would be from the tree..... the fluff looks gray. Looks like it might have been last years nest and since mockingbirds don't often come back to the same nest.... hmmm quite the mystery!
  4. Tree came down with this nest. Any guesses? Sacramento, CA
  5. That is currently what I have it labeled but my Merlin app wants to call it a Turnstone and I think that is wrong!
  6. Interesting, did not think swan but then that neck....what swan has orange legs? so maybe a swan crossed with a Canada x other type of goose?
  7. Canada face - sort of but look at those orange legs! Canada x Greater white-fronted? Or Domestic X with Canada?
  8. These two look different to me. Are they? I have trouble identifying the difference between Aleutian, Richardson's and the others!
  9. Gray Lodge North of Sacramento. I originally thought these were RIng-Necks but did not see the signature yellow eye, black headed male. Since it looks like I have a male and female here, I thought Scaup... does not look like the Scaup in my book.... urgh!
