  1. Okay... looking closer I all of a sudden realized that’s not a quarter haha! Still, Hummingbird feathers are very fragile and see-through, and almost veiny. https://www.google.com/search?q=hummingbird+wing+feathers&client=safari&hl=en-us&prmd=sivn&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiclfb7sq7cAhWTLH0KHUQ9DFkQ_AUIEigC&biw=320&bih=454#imgrc=nE9j8k0MPYmOOM:
  2. California Quail: https://www.fws.gov/lab/featheratlas/feather.php?Bird=CAQU_wing_male Eurasian Collared Dove: https://www.fws.gov/lab/featheratlas/feather.php?Bird=ECDO_wing_adult
  3. Not a Hummingbird... their feathers are even smaller. I’m thinking a quail feather? It’s pretty nondescript though. It could be a Eurasian Collared Dove as well.
  4. Louisiana Waterthrush in Idaho! First state record ?
  5. I think the beak is too hefty and curved for Bullock's. I'm thinking Hooded.
  6. South Central Idaho sometime in early spring. I was considering Ferruginous.
  7. Agreed with Nashville with that yellow throat.
  8. I have a cabin in a ridiculously wild area with no more than 100 people within a 100 mile radius... And I have had no weird encounters with Bigfoot ? . Only foxes screaming which is pretty freaky. We do have wolverines and grizzlies though.
  9. Of course. You didn't know? ? He moderates us
  10. @egosnell2002 remember to bring the owls with you ? @Nighthawk01 noice! Have you decided where to bird yet?
  11. Please post IDs in the Help me identify a bird section, but this bird is an Egyptian Plover. EDIT: Also welcome to Whatbird!
  12. Ah okay. When are you leaving for the wild west? ?
  13. Wow! Looks like you've been pretty busy! Also you can drive legally at 14 in Idaho ?
  14. How about Wrentit? If you do live in California those are fairly common. Also look up Bushtit.
  15. Ah got it. I'd agree with Flicker then. Good luck in refinding it ?
  16. Could you describe flight pattern? Flickers have a bobbing flap-glide pattern, harriers have a soaring or flapping pattern.
  17. My best guess is some sort of hawk but the recording isn't the best...
  18. My brother took this picture of me holding a baby Starling in Philadelphia
  19. I live in Idaho as well! This is for sure a Great Horned Owl. I hear them do this all the time, generally the females do it I think. Also their ear tufts can be hard to see sometimes, especially as it gets dark.
