  2. Hi all Yellow, male and singing oriole in Lincoln, Nebraska this past weekend? First year, male "something" ... 🙂 Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn, CO http://www.friendsofthepawneegrassland.org/
  3. My assumptions: Winter plumage With these hints: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Sanderling/id# Sanderlings are small, plump sandpipers with a stout bill about the same length as the head. Pale gray above, white below, no streaking
  4. Hi all A few more IDs from Crom Lake, Colorado this morning ... appreciate your help, Gary Semipalmated Sandpiper? Semipalmated and Western Sandpiper? ??? Entire flock
  5. Hi all A bit of a fallout this morning at Crom Lake, Peirce, Weld County, Colorado. I have a "gut" feeling of what I want them to be but need your confirmation help. First ID challenge: Thanks Gary
  6. Hi all Raptor rehabilitation expert here in Colorado: " It is a long-eared owl; Will A in Boulder (and others) are correct. This LEOW does have a rather light face, however, but the horizontal flank and upper leg barring, and the rusty brown dorsal surfaces of the wing, along with the white "supercilliary" eyebrow type markings are all diagnostic. The ear tufts are also visible on the perched photos; SEOW tufts are 3/4 of an inch long and are usually only visible when the bird is in camouflage mode with its facial disk scrunched up into a trapezoidal shape, with the eyes half-closed. " Thanks Gary
  7. There is still debate about what this owl might be. Some new photos to review.
  8. Owl expert here says "Long-eared Owl", fun discussion! Thanks Gary
  9. Hi all We IDed as Short-eared but some are having second thoughts. What do you all say? Behavior was spooked from Rabbitbrush alongside road on Pawnee National Grassland during our field trip. It flew and perched low in other Rabbitbrush a short distance away. Eventually flew into large patch of Rabbitbrush, perched low, lost sight of her. Thanks Gary http://www.friendsofthepawneegrassland.org/
  10. HI all Is there an explanation as to why this Yellow-headed does not have black on lore? Leucistic? Thanks Gary
