  1. Any more photos? It's definitely a Red-tail, but I'm interested in the subspecies. Location?
  2. Respectfully, I disagree with these. Wing position is highly dependent on posture. There's no difference between species except if you want to claim a difference in primary projection, wing length, etc. Young LBBG can have pinkish legs. Bill size is useful here, however, as well as notice the dark head, brown color, and lack of contrasty checkering on the scaps/coverts. Overall, however, LBBG are just much colder, a contrasty black and white.
  3. Ha! You're right. That's what happens when you haven't heard a warbler in months. lol
  4. I'm inclined to call that a Carolina Wren. Also, in case you're interested there's a Black-throated Blue Warbler singing in the background 🙂
  5. RBGU. Known RBGUxLAGU hybrids are much more striking, with wonky bill and leg colors.
  6. Looks pretty good for YB Sapsucker. Where?
  7. I would most definitely not ID Iceland Gull based on voice. Gulls have extremely variable calls, and there are very few recordings of that species, let alone literature on how they might be separated.
  8. Pure western is not that common up there. Presumably Olympic
  9. fwiw, it really doesn't strike me as a Peregrine, but those wings are really long. It does look like a Swainy, but it would be really really unusual in January
  10. The rear bird is definitely a Kumliens, but the front bird looks fine for Herring
  11. True Iceland? Nominate/Glaucoides, Thayer's, what are you referring to here?
  12. Body streaking is too fine for a 4 year gull plus it's just a bit too slight in structure. Cal would be a bit darker
  13. It's a House. Some House can show somewhat of an eyeline like this. Notice the thin streaking. Also fwiw I can't ID the accipiter from these photos. Maybe if we lightened the photo up and I was able to see the face
  14. Sounds like a Wilson's Warbler not a Song Sparrow so it's Pacific Wren
  15. Its a female junco and imo not enough to ID to subspecies. Too ambiguous
  16. Second looks better for Common Yellowthroat
