  1. Apologies for the low photo quality. Seen briefly outside my kitchen window in San Francisco, CA on Sep 27 2019. Is this a juvenile accipiter of some kind? Thank you!
  2. i saw 2 very odd birds this weekend and after some research i believe these are my first phalaropes! can anyone confirm whether this is true and ID the species? both were spotted in san francisco bay area over labor day weekend. i have video as well if helpful. thank you!
  3. thank you! here are the photos cropped, not sure it changes/confirms anything
  4. i want to say this is a coopers hawk, but i am never too sure with these. is there enough in these photos to give an ID? seen yesterday near half moon bay, ca. thanks!
  5. seen in june in southwestern pennsylvania, rural area. hopping around (maybe feeding?) in a running creek. thanks!
  6. i briefly spotted this small raptor yesterday before it dove into some shrubs. not sure if itโ€™s a coopers or a sharp shinned. seen in a suburban area in northern california, yesterday. any ideas? thank you!
  7. Is this wren a Bewick's? It seemed the right size. The song was more of a cheep-cheep, so is this a fledgling? I'm not good with wrens or with IDing age... have a really bad photo of the sound if that helps, thanks! Seen today in Mountain View CA MVI_5478.mp4
  8. This was the only one of its species in a local seasonal creek (San Francisco CA), hanging out with 4 male mallards. I initially overlooked it as a female mallard but the size and shape didn't seem right. I've never seen a gadwall up close but online searches seem to fit. Thank you!
  9. Not the best photos of this one, seen yesterday in San Francisco, CA. Rocky and wooded urban park. I'm not very good with flycatchers - perhaps Western Wood Pewee? The last photo is even worse, and I'm also not certain it's even the same bird (first one left my view and then this one appeared nearby a few minutes later) ... thank you!
  10. This one might be a bit boring - is this a domestic/mallard hybrid, or something along those lines? It was noticeably larger/more aggressive than the surrounding mallards (pictured), with a darker/less shiny plumage, a paler bill, and a speckled breast. In a small man-made pond in San Francisco in May. Thank you! (You'll also notice a large crazy-looking Muscovy Duck which I assume is also domestic.)
  11. Thank you! That's a lifer for me ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. I think it's a downy woodpecker due to small size and relative bill size? Taken in April near Santa Cruz CA. Thanks!
  13. Photographed this small bird yesterday near Santa Cruz, CA. It kept leaving to grab insects mid-air and returning to the same perch (like a phoebe) but otherwise it looked unfamiliar. Is it some kind of flycatcher? Thanks for your help!
  14. Looking through binoculars I was pretty sure this was an osprey, but it seemed like an odd sighting for the urban area I was in and some local birders said it wasn't likely - can we confirm based on these poor quality photos? Thanks!
