  1. I got lucky today! Male left and female right.
  2. In the spring they sit on my house at night and talk back and forth. I always warn the neighborhood. One way or another GHO will feed their babies.
  3. I guess there's a reason that they say don't go past a roadblock!
  4. There are a lot of places that red shouldered hawks are not rare. But, in central Washington state, middle of winter they are almost unheard of!
  5. That took less time than I thought! thanks again for your help.
  6. I'm in central WA state and there has been repeated sightings of a red shouldered hawk here by an experienced birder. I haven't seen it yet but I'm going out today. What would I look for when comparing it to the very common red-tail hawk? It could be some distance away so I would be looking thru binoculars. We have LOTS of large hay fields so that is what I'll be scanning across. I have no doubts about the bird is out there. So would I look for dark belly band. no belly band, light head or dark head etc. Thanks in advance.
  7. It's been kinda cold and snowy in Central WA. I think that's what brought this golden eagle out of the canyon. Watching it with a half dozen bald eagles there is a difference in personalities between the two. A bald eagle will ignore people most of the time but this golden didn't want any part of having its picture taken.
  8. I've been gone a while, hopefully I'm back! So what are you having for lunch!? Northern pygmy owl
  9. It's raining today. It's supposed to snow later in the week,
  10. I thought this was a young loggerhead but as usual I question my ID! Taken today in Central WA. Thanks in advance.
  11. I looked at both of those but I thought it had too much black on it's face. More like a white eyebrow.
  12. I caught this woodpecker on a trail cam in eastern WA over the weekend. Is it a Williamson's sapsucker or something else?
  13. Sprry - this is from today on Central Washington
  14. I'm pretty sure this is a golden eagle but before I report it, I wanted a confirmation, please.
  15. If only she would have been a little slower or me a little quicker!
  16. I was going to do the "best photo of the day" but considering it hard to tell what it is! This yellow breasted chat was pretty far out and was hard to find thru the view finder. So here's my yellow breasted chat (trust me). I got rattled by a rattlesnake (also that I didn't see) so I took a pic and ran!
  17. Sage thrashers can be a little hard to find. But I found a pair! I don't know which is which! Maybe dad with lunch?
  18. Mamma wasn't cooperating today! But the owlets were happy to see me!
  19. We've been getting these huge cumulonimbus clouds for the past few days. They look more threatening than they actually are.
  20. I confess to being Gos, Cooper, and sharpie inept! I thought this bird had a longer eyebrow than the usual Cooper's hawk. So after saying that my odds of this being anything other than a cooper are slim! Taken yesterday in Central Washington state.
  21. I didn't get a pretty background, but this merlin was happy to model for me!
  22. Ancient Lakes is a great hunting, fishing and hiking area in Central WA. The views are beautiful and about 15 million years old. Best to go when it's cold - it's rattlesnake and tick central!
