  1. Taken 08 OCT 2018 / South Central Washington / Klickitat County I heard a Raven squawking, really making a big ruckus so I looked out and saw this bird sitting on top of this Oak snag. At first, I thought it was another Raven but it looked quite a bit larger than the Raven and it appeared to be hunkered down. I went to grab my camera and just as I had the bird framed up it flew so these two photos are all I have. It has been raining here in the PNW so it is very gray and overcast so I apologize for the poor quality of the photos. I'm sure someone can ID this bird tho...I thought it might be a Heron but then I didn't see its legs trailing behind so I'm stumped. Thanks in advance for any and all help. ?
  2. Welcome to Whatbird! The photos will not open. ?
  3. No worries...just thought I'd let you know. ?
  4. @Pigeon I thought you might be able to help the OP out. Thank you. ?
  5. Nice photo. Just a quick heads-up...the rules state that we can not make back to back posts...but I'm going to post an H. ?
  6. The bill looks like a House Wren but the body posture and tail do lean towards a Winter Wren. I don't know if they hybridize or not. I saw my first Winter Wren a few days ago and managed to get a decent photo, a lifer for me, so I was pretty excited. ?
  7. Yep, I see it now. I was so focused on the bill that I neglected to look at the tail. ? Do I get a point for at least getting gray and catcher right? lol!
  8. Gray Flycatcher is the best match I can find...I might be missing something too so that may be wrong. ?
  9. #5 Agree with Great Black-backed Gull ...I missed seeing the red eye ring. ?
  10. #1 Ring-billed Gull #2,3,4 Herring Gull #5 Pass ...maybe Kelp Gull Just my thoughts ...wait for more input. ?
  11. It appears to have a brown belly patch which would indicate a Gambel's Quail. ?
  12. I live in the Pacific Northwest, South-Central Washington state, this is what Downy and Hairy's bills look like here. Stout, adj: thick and strong. Sturdy. Perhaps I could have/should have chosen a different word but that is how I see it as compared to a Downy's bill. ?
  13. I think 1, 3 and 4 are all Hairy's...there is not any barring/spots on the outside edge of the tail. The bill on the second one looks pretty stout to me...not as dainty and sharply pointed as a Downy's should look. ?
  14. It looks like a Mountain Chickadee but the image is so small I'm not 100% positive. ?
  15. Another vote for a Wilson's...if I'm wrong at least I'm in good company. ?
