  1. These birds were seen last week in Los Alamos and Santa Fe counties. I used Merlin, but it's not always right so looking for confirmation or corrections. Thanks!

    #4 Hepatic Tanager - this is the only photo I got so not sure it can be identified by this.

  2. I was visiting New Mexico last week and saw lots of hummingbirds. The first was in Los Alamos and the other 2 were taken in White Rock. Merlin gave me ID's for them, but of course it could have been wrong. I don't know if bird 2 & 3 are the same bird or not, they were taken 1 minute apart, but there were more than a few buzzing around.  I'm used to seeing only one kind of hummingbird where I live! Thanks!

    I saw this bird this morning in Northeast Ohio. The eye color is really throwing me, figure maybe it is a juvenile? Looked too small to be a red-shouldered hawk. I considered a Merlin, but looked a little too big, but I have only seen one twice, and it was farther away, so maybe it just looked bigger because it was closer up. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Kestrel? More details would help. Color, Size, Habitat, Activity, Flight Pattern, Tail Shape, etc. The link down below is to a kestrel.


    This was bigger than a Kestrel. It was just sitting in a tree on the edge of a wooded area near a reservoir. It flew off towards the rising sun, so I wasn't able to get a good look at it in flight.

    Personally, I'd leave this one as Philadelphia/Warbling.  The lores and cap aren't particularly dark, but that doesn't rule out Philly.  I find that if I have to edit the photos to see anything it's probably not safe to ID.

    Thanks, I only lightened up the second photo. I was hoping it was a Philadelphia because I don't have a photo of one of those.
