  1. SW Alberta this evening. Two birds that have been hanging out together the past couple of days in the pond near my house. While observing them in the pond, I was leaning towards Green-winged Teal for both but now looking at the photos I really don't feel confident and hope someone can help with the ID. 2 photos of each individual...
  2. The hawk does not have feathered legs so that rules out Ferruginous Hawk. I think it looks good for a Swainson's Hawk.
  3. SW Alberta earlier today. I observed a group of 8 Dowitchers and assumed they were all Long-billed but this photo has me second guessing myself. Would you call the bird on the left a Short-billed?
  4. SW Alberta earlier today. The 3rd photo is of a different individual.
  5. SW Alberta earlier today. bird on the far left... bird on the far left... bird in front of the Ring-necked Ducks...
  6. Good point! I missed that when looking through my guide book. Thanks!
  7. SE British Columbia in the Rocky Mountains, earlier today.
  8. SW Alberta earlier today. I'm not sure if the photos are of different birds or both of the same bird.
  9. SW Alberta earlier today. This bird was a little too far away to get a good photo but I am hoping someone will be able to help. I definitely was seeing rufus on the head in the field and it shows in the photos as well.
  10. SW Alberta earlier today. Not seeing as much green for the legs as I would like but they don't appear black either.
