  1. Originally thought one on left was an Iceland Gull and the one on the right was a Thayer's Gull with the darker wing tips and pink bill with black tips. Also thought wing length was appropriate for Iceland. However the size of the bill seems too big for and Iceland so I'm thinking more Glaucous-winged (or maybe something else). Juneau, Alaska June 3, 2022
  2. I believe this is a Fox Sparrow. If so is it a red or sooty.
  3. Has been brought to my attention that it is a ‘blue morph’ juvie and not a hybrid
  4. I'm fairly certain that this is a snow goose hybrid, I'm just not certain a hybrid with what. I may have additional photos to post. Juneau, Alaska May 9, 2022
  5. I was wondering if this could be a Western x Glaucous-winged gull hybrid. We have a lot of Herring x Glaucous-winged gull hybrids but I'm not sure if the black tail band is right. April 18, 2022 Juneau, Alaska
  6. Thanks for all the comments... the educational info is greatly appreciated.
  7. Wondering if anyone can I.D. this gull from the photos (cause I can't). Juneau, Alaska Oct. 2021
  8. I believe this poor gull with a fish hook is an Iceland Gull. Is it possible to tell from photos whether it is a Thayer's or Kumlien's? The safe bet here is Thayer's. Juneau, Alaska - September 24, 2021
  9. This junco was seen at my feeder Aug. 24, 2020 in Juneau Alaska. Could it be possibly an intergrade, specifically 'Oregon x pink-sided.' Pink-sided would be very unusual for this area.
  10. Saw this duck in Hilo Hawaii Feb. 5, 2020 and my first impression was a Northern Shoveler. However, although the bill has some spoon shape, it seems a little small. I also don't know about the mottled head coloring and the white lower body. Looks like maybe some domestic duck characteristics. Is a hybrid a possibility?
  11. I saw this duck at the Temsco Pond in Juneau, Alaska at 7:00 am on May 22, 2019. I also posted on the iBird Only help forum. There my ID of it being a scaup was confirmed with some discussion as to whether it is a greater or lesser scaup. What I'm curious about and interested in is the rose coloration in the bill. I'm hoping that someone can offer some possible reasons for this occurrence. Thank you.
