  4. Thank you friends, I'll get back on my meds now.
  5. Yesterday, a few miles north of Blythe, CA above the Colorado River. There were about 20 birds rising, circling in the morning, searching for a thermal, I suppose. Am I confusing this bird with what I believe is a Stork? Thanks for your help.
  6. This morning south of Quartzite, AZ in KOFA National Wildlife Refuge. Is this a Robin in the desert? Thank you.
  7. ID'ing isn't so easy as I thought. Here's another picture showing less pronounced white on tail and dark eye patch. And then I added another pic I pulled off the web. Still wondering but will go with the final decision of my eagle eye friends here...Thanks for your help.
  8. Today, south of Truth or Consequences, NM on Choalla Reservoir I got this shot of what I thought was a Say's Phoebe but when I got back and put it up on the computer I saw it wasn't a Say's... What a delight, another lifer, 3rd in two days. Happy duck here. It's not a Say's, right? :-)
  9. Today, south of Truth or Consequences, NM Caballo St Park Thought I had a Cliff Swallow until I got back and blew it up on the computer....Lucky to get this shot...Right light, and a quick trigger finger. Do I get my new lifer photo ID 🙂
  10. Researching a little further...Could this possibly be the Broad-tailed female?

  17. Yesterday in south Yuma, AZ. Am I having trouble ID'ing because this is possibly immature or are my ID skills still as shaky as ever.
  18. My thoughts too but the Neotropic would have been out of range (too far north) according to my National Geographic Field Guide.... Thanks for all the help folks.
  19. Yesterday above the Colorado River, Bullhead City, AZ I think these are Double-crested cormorants but didn't know they could perch on a wire.....Thanks for the help. Sorry for the poor quality pic, only had my phone camera...
