  1. I will bump this and throw in my guide-book based opinion. When I read description for Calliope and look at the diagrams the wings are supposed to extend past the tail which does not appear to be the case in the 1st and 2nd photo. There should be white visible between the eye and the base of the bill and I do not see this in the 3rd photo. The bill does look about the right length but it is not a clear ID for calliope for me.
  2. When I follow the link there is no sound file. Did you take it down?

  4. Tree swallows and violet-green swallows observed at this location recently according to ebird. I would lean tree based on the blue covering the armpits and coming down the flanks a bit.
  5. Agree. Gray Heron is not native to North America.
  6. I'm looking at this gull and trying to put my new Gulls Simplified book to good use. (Great book. Gulls are still complicated.) I would have to guess with that leg color and in that area it must be Herring.
  7. Bump. I also took the liberty of cropping and resizing. I do not have any experience with this bird but I thought someone might. IMG_5420.thumb.JPG.f310727f10a11147cb6dd08ceece42e3r2 by Mark Ross, on Flickr
  8. Bump. If I had a Mexican bird guide I would take a stab at this one.
  9. Taken yesterday at the lakefront in Chicago. I would guess lesser I suppose based on the small nail. DSC04194r scaup by Mark Ross, on Flickr Thanks
  10. Looks good for female BHCO to me. Bill looks too small for Bronzed.
