  1. This bird was seen yesterday at a nature park in Central Montana. It looks to be a juvenile, and after looking through all the bird books I have, I'm unable to ID it. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank You!
  2. Wow, Thank you Charlie....the markings are spot on for a Lark Sparrow but I'll wait for confirmation. I've never seen one either!
  3. This bird was seen today in southwest Montana. It was far up in the tree, but the white belly in the sun gave it away for me. It looked to be bigger than robin size, but not sure because of the distance. Any help with an ID would be greatly appreciated!! You all are the best!
  4. Thank you both so much! The picture was taken at the City of Rock National Reserve in southern Idaho and there was lots of sagebrush.
  5. This sparrow was seen in southern Idaho this past weekend. I believe it might be a Song Sparrow but not 100% positive. Any help with an ID would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all so much!@!
  6. This bird was seen a couple days ago in southern Idaho. I believe it is a Flycatcher, but having trouble distiguishing which one. Any help would be greatly appriciated!! Thank You.
  7. Thank You cvanbosk and millipede, very helpful comments! I'm pretty certain now the second bird is a Least Flycatcher, the first one I'm still not so sure. I wish I had better pictures of it's wings, tail etc. but unfortunately I don't. I've attached the only other pictures I was able to get, and they're not really any better, but hopefully they help. Thanks again for your help.
  8. These two birds were seen today along a nature park in south-central Montana. After looking through my books I thought maybe one could be a Thrush and the other a Vireo? Not positive though. Any help with identifying these two birds would be greatly appreciated. Thank YOU!!
  9. This bird was seen at Camas NWR in central Idaho two days ago. There were two birds in a muddy, marshy area. I'm not sure if they are the same bird or different. I appologize for the poor photo, my camera isn't the greatest and they were pretty far away. Any help with an ID would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!
  10. Ahhh...thank you Birdbrain22, I really don't think I would have gotten that one. It doesn't look at all like the ones I usually see.
  11. This bird was seen yesterday in SW Montana in small pond with some other ducks. I was able to ID then all except this one. It was amongst some Green Wing Teals and Gadwalls. I went through every bird book I have and haven't been able to come up with an ID. My thought then was possible domestic, but was hoping someone could help with a positive ID. Thank you so much.
  12. This pair was seen this week along a shoreline in southwest Montana. I'm thinking the are Willets, but I'm not 100% certain. I also thought maybe a Snipe possibly. I'd appreciate a confirmation from those of you who know your shorebirds better then me!@!
  13. This bird was recently seen on a ranch in southwest Montana (yes we still have snow!) It was a little smaller than a robin, maybe around 7-8". I would appreciate any help on identifying this bird. Thank you so much!
  14. Hello!! Saw this bird today in near some wetlands in southcentral Montana, eating from a Russian Olive bush. I think it might be a Chipping Sparrow but would appriciate some help with a positive ID. Thanks!!
  15. That you psweet! We didn't see any males, although they could have been there. The Rufous were not happy they showed up and chased them off.
  16. This picture was taken this past weekend near Georgetown Lake in SW Montana. We have a couple feeders and a water feature that attract the Rufous hummingbird. But this bird was smaller and there was no rufous on the base of the tail. After looking through my books I was thinking it could be a Caliope, but would appriciate a positive ID. This would be a new bird for me. Thank you all so much!
  17. Ha yes! Female Yellow headed Blackbird. Thank you both.
  18. This bird was seen today near some ponds in SW Montana. I thought at first it was a Western Meadowlark but now I'm not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!!
  19. I just went to the Cornell site and they have a good video of a Lincoln's Sparrow singing ,and from what I remember it was very simililar to the bird song I heard. Lincoln's it is! Thank You!
  20. I went through my photos and I think this is the same bird from a different angle. Quality isn't that great. It was singing quite a bit, and at a high level....so I was thinking at the time it would be an adult. Thank you all for your input.
  21. Taken a few days ago at Georgetown Lake in SW Montana. I think it may be a Song Sparrow, but a positive ID would be great! Thank you so much for your help!!
  22. What a great relief to have this site back up and running!! Thank you So So much! I was thinking it was down for the count, and have been looking at other 'bird ID' websites but none had the expertise I could trust as this one. Thank you again!
  23. This picture was taken on the shoreline of a lake in south-central Montana a couple weeks ago. Not a great picture, but we're thinking it could be a femaile red-necked Phalarope. Any help with a positive ID would be appriciated. Thank You! p.s. So glad this forum is back up!!!
