  1. I did that search and I guess I was being too picky. thx
  2. first off I am colorblind, I cannot see the nuances that maybe present the first shot was in September, the second in October if I look at leucistic NOCAs, the feathers seem to be stark white, these feathers don't look white(?) the second bird shows bleaching on the primaries, leucism impacts the entire feather So I am inclined to agree that both these birds are maturing juveniles. But if this is the vestiges juvenile plumage , why doesn't the internet have a ton of examples?
  3. two different Northern Cardinals taken 5 years apart on the south TX coast any comments on the plumage? has anyone seen this in a Northern Cardinal

  16. Taken last weekend off San Diego. Trying to get an Ashy Storm-Petrel.
  17. Well, a couple of great lessons for me. I thought I did my homework when I went to Austin. I got a regional list of species that went back two months. A Field Sparrow had not been reported in the Austin area since January, so not on my hit list. I am very poor at identifying, but this "House Sparrow" bothered me enough so that I was willing to go through the self imposed embarrassment of the subject line. As usual, you guys are great! This is a lifebird!
  18. Just to make sure, taken a month ago in Austin, TX
