  1. That's what I suspected. Thanks anyway!
  2. I was thinking robin with the belly coloration, but the picture and angle is so bad I didn't want to make any guesses.
  3. Any way to tell what this thing is? Taken in early April in southern KY. Flying over some farmland/ponds.
  4. Ah, I got too excited. There was another bald eagle flying around so I thought they might have been together. Thanks!
  5. Hi everyone, is this an immature Bald Eagle? Maybe some type of hawk? Seen yesterday in southern KY swooping over a pond.
  6. Southern Kentucky today. I really should get a higher zoom lens. 1. Bufflehead confirm 2. Mallards? 3. No idea, but I think they're all the same species.
  7. That's what I was afraid of. Thanks!
  8. That looks like it could be a Cackling Goose, but I'm not 100% sure.
  9. Saw these geese in a park in southern KY today. 1. 2. 3.
  10. So so sorry for yet another gull post. Taken in southern KY yesterday.
  11. Thanks! Maybe someday I'll see one hovering a little closer to my camera 😁
  12. Sorry for the bad pics. This bird was sitting on a powerline over the road, then flew out over the field nearby before I could get a good picture. It would swoop around, then hover over a certain spot for a little bit. Taken in southern KY yesterday.
  13. One of the lesser-known subspecies of Herring Gull.
  14. Please help! I'm a landlocked biologist - I don't know gull species! All these were taken today at a lake in Kentucky. 1. 2. 3. 4.
  15. Seconded. Crows' tails are more rounded and blunt, as far as I remember.
  16. Ah, makes sense. There was one swooping around our birdfeeders recently. Thanks!
  17. This guy just showed up in my backyard today. Central KY. I wish I got a better picture! This is the only shot I got before it flew away (and I included a zoomed in and cropped version), but I saw it through binoculars too. It looked like it had a flat head like a falcon, but it was hard to tell. It also had very flappy wingbeats, almost like flailing when it came to perch in the tree. With the distinctive flight pattern, the color, and size, I think I have same this same bird around the neighborhood before, but I don't know what it is. Any ideas? If it comes back I will try to get a better ph
  18. Thanks! I figured the first was unidentifiable, but worth a shot!
  19. Saw what I think were some bald eagles and red tailed hawks today in Kentucky. In the first pic, I think these are both bald eagles, but is there any way to tell? In the second, I think that's a bald eagle and a red-tailed hawk fighting. I followed the eagle to try to get a better pic, and the red tailed hawk perched in a tree in the third picture, which was very far away.
  20. Taken today in central KY. There were a bunch of these guys hopping around in a dried out pond.
