  1. Great -- thanks very much! We've been living in a fifth-wheel trailer and traveling through the country since last October, and I'm seeing lots and lots of birds I've never been able to see before.
  2. Hi, everyone -- I'm trying to identify the bird in the attached photo, taken a couple of weeks ago near Sand Springs, Oklahoma (a few miles west of Tulsa). Merlin says it's an indigo bunting; I've never seen one. He did appear to favor perching at the top of trees, which is an identifier of indigo buntings. I apologize for the poor-quality photo; he wouldn't let me get very close. Thanks, in advance, for your help!
  3. Hi everyone -- I've spent 30 minutes trying to identify this sparrow, and Merlin says it's a white-crowned. Would you please confirm that, and let me know what attributes make it so? Thanks very much? Taken this morning in Grants, New Mexico (northwest corner of state).
  4. This unknown goose was among a large gaggle of Canada geese at Lathrop State Park near Walsenburg, Colorado on Oct. 27, 2021. It's about half the size of a Canada goose; maybe a little bigger. Any ID help will be appreciated!
  5. Thanks very much -- I try to identify as much as I can on my own, but it's great to have this resource as well!
  6. Thanks very much -- I could've listened to it a lot longer, but it had better things to do than entertain me, I guess, and didn't stay very long. Thanks again!
  7. Hi -- I'm still learning to identify wading birds and haven't had any luck with this one at Lake Ladora. Not the best perspective on the photo, I realize, and I couldn't tell what color its legs are. It was maybe 12-14 inches tall (maybe taller). I'm guessing it's a sandpiper of some kind, but would appreciate further information. Thanks for any help!
  8. This little sparrow was perched next to a pond in St. Vrain State Park in Weld County -- had just a gorgeous call. I've looked online and in all of my books, and I can't identify it. Any help, including male/female ID, would be appreciated!
