  1. I live in Florida but am visiting Sedona, so I don't know the local gentry. I was in the backyard and saw two birds approx 300 yards away and so were silhouetted, therefore I couldn't see detail. They would leave the branch, hover like a hummingbird, even darting laterally, and did so such that I could see that their wingspace was a blur of movement. Then, it made a downward swoop in the shape of a "J" SO fast, like nothing I've ever seen a living creature do. I'm not being hyperbolic. It reminded me of the video of Navy pilots describing UFOs that they say moved like nothing they've ever seen. (For reference, in this same time frame I saw Woodhouse Scrub Jays, Lesser Goldfinches, Cardinals, Cassin's/House Finches, and possibly a Phainopepla.) Thank you

  14. These photos taken recently in scottsdale, Arizona. Does not look like a typical mallard to me. Has a breast spot also. Any help is appreciated.
  15. Saw this very deep diving loon today in maricopa county, Arizona. Saw it come up only once in 30 minutes when I took photos. Bill looked yellow but thought it was because of morning sun. Common loons are there and saw a few. Since this loon was a deep diver, went back to same location and spent 45 minutes only to see it dive but didn’t spend much time on water to get photos. Enclosing photos I took the very first time I saw it. I am thinking it could be yellow billed based on photos but it would be mega rare here. Appreciate any comments,suggestions,ID.
