  1. Hung out with the sparrows after school on Thursday https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614671277
  2. If you zoom in and look super closely there’s like 3 pixels of white secondary in the first pic
  3. I’ve had female Gadwall with black beaks before.
  4. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614469474 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614469494 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614470451 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614470426 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614470430 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614470439 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614470405
  5. The Song Sparrows on this trail are maybe too habituated.... https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614470608 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614470606
  6. An odd couple.... Whimbrel and Western Willet https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614470459
  7. Had a blast trying to photograph the Shorbs and Meadowlarks in flight on the slough trail today, the meadowlarks were super tough because they're so skittish but the constant stream of people who walk this trail flushing the birds certainly helped. The avocets were super hard and basically all the photos were slightly soft, probably due to the relatively slow and inaccurate autofocus of my 6d mkii. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614470469
  8. As IKLland stated above these have been super scarce for me (and other people?) in California this year, and as such I had to chase one that had been around since the CBC. I was rewarded by this fella who popped out in plain view as I was trying to pish out some Song Sparrows. Ratings appreciated. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614469466
  9. The wake of the storm today gave me incredibly variable conditions and tremendous wind (and I live in the shadow of the Santa Cruz mountains which blocks much of the wind). These two photos were taken within 15 seconds of one another but one was shot in cloudy conditions with scatted rain and the other shot in almost full sun. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614417109 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614417796
  10. Just a weird (maybe first year) Sooty and not thick billed right? Just wanna make sure with that all grey bill. Redwood Shores, April 2023 @Connor Cochrane
  11. 1. Glaucous-winged 2. Olympic, too dark for Iceland imo and I believe the legs would be brighter 3. Western dark immature is Western Light immature is a Glaucous winged hybrid maybe
  12. birdie 🦅 #625: 🟨🟩⬛⬛⬛⬛ https://birdiegame.net/
  13. Western Grey Squirrel, nice to see one of the native species! Fox Squirrel Colombian Black-tailed Deer (id tentative)
  14. Real low singing Junco, never seen one singing just a few feet from the ground. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614131998
  15. My first good photos of Turkey's, not a bird I'm in the right areas for often. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614131971
  16. Wooooo!! Haven’t been able to see it for myself but the people I’ve talked to have said that there’s like 3 different front page photos they’re seeing. Mine, a Goldcrest, and a Regent Honeyeater.
  17. Oaky areas only indeed https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614131957
  18. They look to be right next to each other in the water so I’d say so
  19. Immature Scaly-breasted Munia or African Silverbill, leaning Munia because the legs look grey and the bill is uniform. Silverbill would have pink legs and a bicoloured bill. I don’t know what young Silverbills look like though.
