  1. California Quail ~ Spotted Towhee ~ California Scrub-jay
  2. It has a face that only a mother could love. They are rather homely little spuds in my opinion.
  3. After looking at the goldfinches a bit closer I think you are correct both are American.
  4. The falcon looks better for a Kestrel to me also, ? female. I can't help with the goldfinches, sorry.
  5. Yes, I agree with that statement. My, ''No, it is not." is in reference to your statement that ''This is assuredly not a Veery.''
  6. No, it is not. I think that @ghowl posted the above photo to state that he recognizes the difference between the two birds, however, I could be wrong about that.
  7. The OP's bird does look more ''thrush-like'' to my eyes but a Veery in Nevada would be rare according to the range maps I looked at.
  8. Ok. Thank you! I'm just having a hard time seeing it as a Swainson's. I agree with you that the color might be a bit off but I also agree with @Charlie Spencer, the eyering does appear to be very weak.
  9. I don't see the sooty spots that a Swainson's would have on its breast. It looks more like a Veery to me, so what am I missing/not seeing? Thanks!
  10. And, the yellow bill also indicates breeding season.
  11. Well, what do you know? I have this one! Now, which one do I go with, male, or female? For a change, I have both. Decisions, decisions. Ok, it looks like most folks are posting males so I'm going with a pretty little female.
  12. 11 MAY 2020 Klickitat County, Washington State Allen's or Rufous? I'm fairly certain I know which one it is but would like some outside input. Thanks in advance!
  13. Nope...Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers are not in my neck of the woods, the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
