  1. I thought this was an interesting picture of a Cardinal. You'll have to take my word for it.
  2. Thanks. It looks quite a bit different than the Juncos I'm used to seeing in Washington. A lot more black and it seems quite a bit darker.
  3. This was in southwest Illinois. I have looked through various sites but can't find anything similar. When the bird turned the other direction, I saw that is was very light colored all the way to the end of the tail feathers. Seemed to be slightly smaller than a Robin.
  4. Horseshoe Lake State Park, in SW Illinois. Downy Woodpecker (pretty sure).
  5. If you didn't know those were a bird's feet, you could easily think they were some type of reptile. The reptile/bird connection is quite interesting.
  6. Their feathers almost always look so smooth and perfect.
  7. Not the best quality in the world, but it was taken through a vehicle window. American Avocet.
  8. It was at Steigerwald NWR near Washougal, WA. As I watched, it was perched on some low branches over a pond and it would fly down and appeared to be drinking and then flew back to the same branches.
  9. Thank you all. It must be a juvenile because all the other pictures I've seen of those, there are other, more visible yellow areas.
  10. I took a few pictures of this little guy, came home, and after searching my books and a few online pages, can't come up with anything, so I turn to the experts. I'll just upload one picture, but another one with the bird facing away from me showed a small, yellow spot on the lower part of the body. I can post that if it would be helpful. Thanks.
  11. A couple of Ring-necked ducks at Steigerwald NWR.
