  6. I think it's mainly because of the mantle color is supposedly paler than it should be in a LBBG, but I'm not entirely sure if there is anything else pointing at hybrid.
  7. I meant to say first bird, not second. That's the bird I was referring to. 😬
  8. That second gull I posted has been getting a bit of attention from some of the better birders up here in Humboldt county. So far the general consensus has been that it's freaking weird and no one really knows what it is. Leading theory is that it's a LBBG hybridized with another gull but who knows what it really is. Just thought I'd give a quick update on the gull.
  9. LBBG would be fantastic! I ran the photos through a DeNoise filter to try and get more detail out. There's also a couple other photos at the ebird list here that I don't think will help much. More opinions would be appreciated. https://ebird.org/checklist/S160579836
  10. Your first bird is a Willet, but the second is a Dunlin.
  11. Yes! Just saw one this evening. They're such cool birds!
  12. I'm not 100% sure why, but I'm pretty sure this is a Ring-billed.
  13. I'm not really expecting to get an ID on these two gulls, but I'm just curious of what others' opinions on what these gulls might be. Ultimately these are probably destined for Larus sp. Seen exactly a week ago mixed in with some 1200 other gulls of various species out in some pastures in Humboldt County, California. Bird 1 Bird 2
  14. I like this a lot for Gadwall. It's certainly not a teal.

  18. Finally got my lifer Rusty Blackbird a few days ago! Only took seven hours of standing in front of a dairy to find it!!! ML613891322 - Rusty Blackbird - Macaulay Library ML613891323 - Rusty Blackbird - Macaulay Library
  19. Spent most of the day birding various residential neighborhoods with the intention of finding wintering rarites. I have a bunch of lists, but this is definitely the best one. https://ebird.org/checklist/S159590904
  20. Thanks! So stoked about that find!
  21. I've been on a roll lately! It's not on the same level as the bird I found yesterday, but I found a female-type Orchard Oriole today while birding neighborhoods near my apartment.
  22. Finally got a Ruffed Grouse!!! Lifer 492!!! ML613839544 - Ruffed Grouse - Macaulay Library
  23. SELF FOUND Black-throated Green-Warbler!!! Third Humboldt county record and the first since 1994. By far my best ever find!!!
