  1. Never heard of that one. Very interesting look.
  2. I believe this is a sub-adult Bald Eagle but it wouldn't be the first time I've been wrong.
  3. I went on a birding outing last year and the person leading our group works for the Audubon Society (among others) and she used the term "sub-adult" instead of juvenile or immature. I forget the reasons why, but she explained it. I doubt it really matter much except to the most ardent (pedantic?) people. Great picture.
  4. Based on the size, that's probably a rat. Doesn't take away from the drama of the scene, but nature does what it does. I've seen one of our chickens catch a mouse and make a meal of it.
  5. I thought this was an interesting picture of a Cardinal. You'll have to take my word for it.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Horseshoe Lake State Park, in SW Illinois. Downy Woodpecker (pretty sure).
  9. 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.
  10. Their feathers almost always look so smooth and perfect.
