  1. Taken last week. Thought I'd throw it out there, but the lighting was terrible and he wouldn't get any closer. All help greatly appreciated.
  2. That's why I got it right :) I shouldn't have add the question mark
  3. Thanks for the help. I was on Vancouver Island about 10 years ago and didn't do much birding. It is a beautiful island (Orcas) and the whole area. Difficult birding. The ferry landing at Anacortes was much better.
  4. All taken last week on Orcas Island. Actually at Mt. Constitution the highest point on the island. Very amazing place, but odd in that not a lot of birds. In fact, on this mountain top it was eerily silent. I appreciate all of your help! I think these are a crossbill. I'm guessing Red Crossbill based on location. Super long shot. I could only get his picture from behind a window. Maybe can't be ID:
  5. All taken last week in the Anacortes and Orcas Island area. All help appreciated! Here's a mix: 1, 2 Unknown Hummingbird 3. Double Crested Cormorant? (I'm still looking for that pelagic!) 4, 5 This one looked different, but after looking at the book I think it is an American Robin 6, 7, Northwestern Crow ? I've read about these and am not sure they can be determined from American Crows.
  6. All taken last week on Orcas Island. This was a new area to me and I'm not great with Gulls. Thank you for your help! 1 Not sure. Yellow legs are throwing me off. 2. Not Sure 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Glaucous-winged Gull 8. Mew Gull?
  7. Again, all taken last week. These were at the ferry landing waiting to go to the island,. I appreciate all of the help. Maybe 2 news ones for me (or they are ringed billed and western :) 1 and 2 I believe These are Mew Gulls 3 Not sure 4 Glaucous-winged Gull? 6 Not Sure
  8. Anacortes and Orcas Island last week. Some new ones for me and some old friends. 2 New ones for me! Always, I appreciate all of your help. 1, 2 Hooded Merganser 3 and 4. I think these are American Wigeons 5, 6, 7 Harlequin Ducks (Pretty sure) 8 Red Breasted Mergansers 9, 10 Horned Grebe?
  9. All taken at Anacortes and Orcas Island last week. My first time in this area so many new ones. All help greatly appreciated. 1 and 2 Same bird, mixed in with House Finches, but doesn't look like on to me. 3. Possibly same bird or species, same yellow on front of the head 4 and 5 6 Back shot, no clue 6, 7, 8 Same bird. Sparrow? Fox Sparrow?
  10. Thanks. Brandt's and double-crested are very common, every outing. I'm headed to Orca's Island int eh San Juan's mid October and then central coast in early November so I'm hoping then. The Black-Vented in Species 200 for me! B
  11. All taken yesterday at Catalina Island, Southern California yesterday and in the waters in that area. I believe this is a Black-vented Shearwater While I was hoping for a Pelagic Cormorant, I'm pretty sure these are Brandt's Cormorants. The only one I thought might be a Pelagic is the top right one, but I don't think so. As always, I appreciate all of you help.
  12. Out this weekend in Southern California. I've not seen a Red-Tailed Hawk perched before, but I think that is what this one is as it is the most common in the area: The bill looked to think for a hawk, but I'm no expert. I believe this this is a Western-Wood Pewee or some other flycatcher Injured leg Great Heron Dueling House Finches
  13. Gor back out to the river this past weekend. Bullhead city on the Colorado River. Forgot the good camera and between fishing and entertaining not much success with birding. I did wee this one that I cannot identify and the poor quality pictures may help either. I'm trying anyway. Thank you for any help. I cropped where I could but started to lose quality. As always I appreciate the help and lessons. B
