  1. Thanks for all the comments... the educational info is greatly appreciated.
  2. Wondering if anyone can I.D. this gull from the photos (cause I can't). Juneau, Alaska Oct. 2021
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. I saw this duck at the Temsco Pond in Juneau, Alaska at 7:00 am on May 22, 2019. I believe it is a lesser/greater scaup. What has me a bit confused is the blue-grey and rose colored bill. I can't seem to find any information or images of scaups with this bill coloration. Any info or comments would be appreciated. Thank you.
