  1. I didn't manage to get a picture, but I saw an interesting bird. It was circling overhead in Northern Alaska this afternoon. I thought it was a jaeger at first, but when I looked at it through my binoculars it was falcon-shaped and solid gray. It had a short, fanned tail and smallish, thin wings, and a hooked beak. I looked at possible species, but it looked too gray to be a peregrine falcon and too small to be a gyrfalcon. I didn't get the best look at it, so I could be wrong. Any ideas?
  2. Also taken April 6 in southern Kentucky. I see American Coots and Gadwalls, is that correct? Is there anything else?
  3. Just checked the file data. These pictures were taken on April 6.
  4. There were some Least Sandpipers around, but I think they were smaller than the birds in picture three. So these are all Pectoral?
  5. Going through my photos from last April. Not sure what kind of sandpipers these are, but are they all the same species? Taken in southern KY. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
  6. Hoary Redpoll it is! Thanks for the help!
  7. I thought I would mix it up a little! Pretty different from Kentucky right? ?
  8. Thanks for the help! So this is a Hoary Redpoll - is there any chance it could be hybridized with a Common Repoll?
  9. Seen in Northern Alaska today. 1. Hoary or Common Redpolls? 3. Glaucous Gull?
  10. Heard this a few nights ago in central KY. Roughly 11 PM. You might have to turn your volume up to hear it; it calls once in the middle of the audio. It had been calling regularly, but of course it stopped when I tried to record it. nighthawk.m4a
  11. Confirm Northern Flicker? Seen yesterday in central Kentucky.
  12. That's what I suspected. Thanks anyway!
  13. I was thinking robin with the belly coloration, but the picture and angle is so bad I didn't want to make any guesses.
  14. Any way to tell what this thing is? Taken in early April in southern KY. Flying over some farmland/ponds.
  15. Ah, I got too excited. There was another bald eagle flying around so I thought they might have been together. Thanks!
  16. Hi everyone, is this an immature Bald Eagle? Maybe some type of hawk? Seen yesterday in southern KY swooping over a pond.
  17. 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.
  18. That's what I was afraid of. Thanks!
  19. That looks like it could be a Cackling Goose, but I'm not 100% sure.
  20. Saw these geese in a park in southern KY today. 1. 2. 3.
  21. So so sorry for yet another gull post. Taken in southern KY yesterday.
