  1. First time in this part of the country, wanted to double-check on some birds I saw. Taken 11/17-11/18 in/near City Park. Thanks for your help!

    1. loggerhead shrikes?

    2. flycatcher - eastern phoebe perhaps?

    3. geese - greater white fronted? (there were many domestic in the park as well)

    4. ducks - ring necked and greater scaup (the group was in a different park of the park from the individual)

    5. this one was a mystery, i only got cell phone photos as it was running around on the sidewalk in a residential area (near a canal) at night - small and funny bird running quickly, didn't see it fly, maybe robin sized. is it a rail or woodcock of some sort?

  2. 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!IMG_5447.thumb.jpg.cd0f3b47fe24c570355258a424aeab78.jpg

  3. 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!

  4. 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.)

    Just sharing a closer look at the Coppersmith Barbet, taken close to my home in Penang, Malaysia.

    Thanks for sharing! What a cute bird. I took this photo long before I was "officially" into birding, but seeing this guy on a wire was something I couldn't ignore. I guess I've always had the hobby 🙂
