  1. Nice little Bluebird, really wish it was less noisy but hey, 4000 iso will do that to ya https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/611926659
  2. You’ve forgotten the Japanese, that stuff never breaks. Helps that they always have a family story of how at the blessing of the gods, 573 years ago they started a knife making business and now they either rule 7 prefectures as knife royalty or it’s one dude making knives in a tiny alleyway building. Either way that knife will last longer than you will.
  3. Lol I typed something up, forgot about it, come back, 3 replies, read replies, turns out I was completely wrong 💀
  4. I'm no expert on these and these are mostly based on vibes, not actual field marks. I'll give it a shot anyways. 1. Something with GWGU in it, Cooks Inlet maybe? 2-3. Might be Herring, looks kinds off for Western to me? mainly head shape 4. Glaucous-winged. (Or Olympic but wingtips are really white)
  5. Second ABA record of Yellow-headed Caracara says you need therapy
  6. The main problem is that the goose was shot way before it arrived at the park, probably before it was even first discovered over 6 months ago. The bird is fully healed and is fully capable of flight. There is no reason to capture and “rehabilitate” the bird when there are Canada Geese at that same park in far far worse condition. The capture and transport of the bird causes far more stress than eating a bit of bread with the park geese ever did to that bird.

  9. This musta been so difficult for you!! 🫡😇
  10. Hybrid imo, grin patch almost looks as proportion as the neighboring Snow Geese
  11. Spotted dove is only for California birds right? No hawaii?
  12. https://ebird.org/checklist/S155171303 Came to check on my favorite Tufted gal, as well as a nice looking Barrow’s Goldeneye male. No luck on the other rarities though, none of the 3 Eurasian Wigeons were present and I was unable to find the BWTE x NOSH among the shovelers. Beautiful sunrise on the Bay Trail though.
  13. The Cuckoo is an excellent bird! It appears to be the first in the Bay Area since the Bodega bird in 2015, although that can hardly be considered the Bay Area
  14. Lesser for me, head sheen color is not a reliable field mark and the water droplets indicate that the male has recently dove, making the head shape invalid. Nail shape says Lesser to me and the females head shape looks Lesser to me.
  15. Btw @Ruslan Balagansky it is the little orange squiggly in the middle of the tertial that differentiates juvi Short-bills from Long-bills not a orange edge like you had stated.
  16. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/610049070 From a while back, I really love how the plants frame the bird!
