  1. Thanks to all, especially Boris & Natasha. 🙂
  2. After scanning through thousand plus Canada Geese, "just a Canada Goose" is appropriate 🙂 Here are a couple more pics of the gull (not much better view though).
  3. Thinking this may be a Cackling? (or just a Lesser Canada?) and possible Iceland Gull. Taken in Geneva NY on 1/20/22.
  4. I agree with Just a House 🙂 at least I don't have to change it in Ebird (but already had house for the year, still gotta find a purple. 🙂 )
  5. Sibley's lists Canada Goose length as 25" to 45", so size can vary a great deal. (I'm an expert on finding small Canada Geese that are almost Cackling - but not quite. 🙂 )
  6. Agreed, facial patterns on Peregrine & "backpack straps" on Red-tail are good indicators (FYI Red-tail appears to be juvenile, no red tail).
  7. Today at Montezuma NWR NY, thought House Finches at first, not sure after looking at the bill (heavily backlight, very grainy/dark pics).
  8. Fairly certain this time - not much bigger than a Merlin. Taken at Montezuma NWR NY today.
  9. Either a very light Herring or darkish Glaucous? (same bird in both pics)
  10. Taken this morning, didn't notice until I was checking pics. Coloration looks like Gadwall, but much smaller than other 2 Gadwall in frame?
  11. Taken at the Montezuma Audubon center in Savannah NY (central NY) today. Think it's a House Finch (female) & Sharp-Shinned. Ignore Goldfinches & House Sparrow. 🙂
  12. Taken near Montezuma NWR NY 1/1/22 in a group of mostly Tundra Swans, think this is a Trumpeter (several reported around).
  13. Trying to verify this one too, Acadian Flycatcher, Montezuma NWR NY. Recorded May 2021. Thanks. DSC_9210 ACFL_Trim.mp4
  14. Taken last May at Montezuma NWR NY, just double-checking that it's a YB & not a BB. Thanks (never uploaded video before, hope it works). DSC_8432 YBCU_Trim.mp4
