  1. A Herring Gull would not be rare, but not as common as the Ring-billed. The Great Black-backed would be very rare,
  2. This gull was seen today at a reservior in SW Montana. Typically we see Ring-billed gulls at this reservior, but this gull didn't look or act like the rest. It seems to have caught a fish and all the other gulls were leaving it alone to eat....which is not what I've witnessed with other gulls with a catch. Any help with an ID on this gull would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  3. Thank you both! We're very excited to see them back!
  4. This owl was seen this morning at Georgetown lake in SW Montana. I believe it is a Great Grey., but would appreciate a confirmation. Great Greys were seen here, but not in the past 5-6 years. I'm hoping they're back. Sorry for the bad photo, its was away and all I had was my phone.
  5. My sister took this picture last weekend in SW Montana. She thinks they are Cowbirds, but I'm inclined to say Rusty Blackbirds (yellowish eyes), but not positive. Any help with an ID would be appreciated. Thank You!
  6. This hawk was seen today in southern Utah near St. George. I thinking it ma be a Red-tail Hawk, but not great on my raptor ID. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!
  7. This bird was seen today in SW Montana. I believe it may be a Long-tailed duck, but would like a positive ID since this would be a new sighting for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!
  8. 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!
  9. 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!
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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!@!
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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!!
  16. 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!!!
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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!@!
  20. 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!
  21. 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!!
