  1. Are these both Herring gulls in different winter classes or is the first one an Thayers? These two stood out from all the Ring-billed and adult Herring gulls but couldn't see a size different as they were far away from the adult Herring. They were found on the Lake Nipissing waterfront where some different gull species have been reported including Great-black backed, Iceland etc., Thank you for your help.
  2. Northern Ontario. Was in the shallows of a bay on a large lake. All alone in about 2-3ft of water. Thanks.

  10. If location helps at all...... It was gliding and flying along and in a row of pine and cedar trees in a small barren town in the country looking for small birds. No big forests around.
  11. I've narrowed this hawk down to Coopers or Sharp-shinned Hawk or maybe Northern Goshawk? Only picture I could fire off in time. If anyone can give me the proper ID please and thanks.

  15. Hi. Just wanted to see if this was a Merlin not a Marlin. Thanks.
  16. HI all. Up in Sudbury, Ontario. This raptor I think is a Northern Harrier Male? Just wanted to confirm here with more experienced birders. Thank you.
  17. Robin sized. I guess they could've been that too? Early birds.

  19. Missed getting its tail. What are your opinions. Rough-winged is more common in my Northern Ontario (Sudbury) region right now I believe. Thanks all in advance.
  20. Leaning towards Peregrine as it looked larger than Merlins in the area plus the dark face with kinda a sideburn? It was on a grain elevator. This raptor on one side and lots of pigeons on the other. Help appreciated. Thanks.
  21. Sudbury, Ontario farm field. (Northern Ontario) 3 Snow Geese with 1 little one? Tried to find immature pictures but didn't look the same but also Ross's Goose didn't look like it either. Help please :)
  22. Hi all. Best photo I could get in a lagoon near Sudbury, Ontario (Northern Ontario). The brown head bird in the middle up with either female green or blue-winged teals. Can't be a Cinnamon can it? Very rare here if so. Just the lighting and it's a green-winged male? Thanks all for your help.
  23. Looks too pudgy to be a woodpecker species too no?
  24. North shore of Lake Nipissing, Ontario. Up in an leafless tree about the size of a dove maybe. Looks like a Northern Flicker? First picture looks like it has a blackhead though but second pic shows abit of red or orange in the neck. Any ideas? Thank you.
