  1. No clue on the first four, but the last one seems like a pewee to me. This looks like a cool place to visit!
  2. Looks like Clay-colored, but I've never seen one either. Best to wait for more opinions. Congrats if this really is a lifer! 🙂
  3. Thanks for your help, everyone! Are eclipse plumages rare? I think there were quite a few of these guys wandering around or swimming in the pond, but I only caught this one on camera.
  4. Hi all, I was looking through old pictures and found this duck. The picture was taken a few years ago in August in Orlando, Florida at Universal Studios. My guess was that it's an American Black Duck, but after looking up that bird's summer range, I'm not so sure. Could an American Black Duck potentially stay in a theme park all year using scraps from tourists as a food source? Thanks for your help! P.S. There was a large pond area nearby with plenty of ducks, moorhens, herons and lots of aquatic plants.
  5. Hi everyone, A family member caught this bird on video while walking in central Washington state. Our guess is that it's a young Ring-Necked Pheasant, but we're not sure. This neighborhood is less than a mile away from a wildlife area where pheasants are common, but we've never seen them in an area with so many roads and houses. We appreciate your help! IMG_6221.MOV
  6. Thank you! I looked it up and it does sound like a verdin. Cool! 🙂
  7. Hi everyone, This video was taken a few miles out of Las Vegas in the end of June, 2018. I'm not sure if there's enough information here to safely ID visually, but does anyone recognize this bird by sound? Thanks for any help you can give, I appreciate it. IMG_0196.MOV

  9. I had no idea they could sound like that! Thanks @Aidan B!
  10. Hi all, I was looking through some Grand Canyon road trip photos from 2018 and found a video with a mystery bird. I'm not from the Southwest so I'm not certain, but my guess is that it's a thrasher of some sort. Maybe LeConte's judging by the voice? I wasn't able to find any sound clips of thrashers that sound like this, so it might be something else entirely. This video was taken the last week of June 2018 in the extreme Northwestern corner of Arizona. It was 10:30 am. There were originally two of these birds, but one flew off before I could catch it on video. Please let me know if you have any questions, and I really appreciate any input you can offer! Thank you! P.S. It's hard to see at first, but the bird is close to the top of the tree. Also, the picture should show both birds. IMG_0185.MOV
  11. The bird very well could have been a female yellow-rumped warbler. Thanks for your help! :)
  12. While camping, I saw a small, mostly gray bird with pale yellow or olive on the rump. At first glance, I thought it was a flycatcher, but the tail and behavior threw me off. The tail was almost as long as the bird‘s body and had an intricate black-and-white pattern. The bird would flutter over the surface of a creek and catch insects while using its tail to maneuver. Its flight reminded me of a hummingbird, but it was a perching bird. I didn’t get any pictures. :/ I’ve tried several bird search engines, but nothing’s come close. Thank you for helping if you can!
