simonthetanner posted a topic in Help Me Identify a North American Bird'Tis the season for sorting out dowitchers, and I'd love some feedback on this individual I found this morning in the Rogue Valley of southern OR (where Long-billed is the expected species). Earlier in the morning I and several other birders heard a definite short-billed calling at a local pond, so I went back in the afternoon to see if I could locate it. Other than a large flock of obvious long-bills, there was just one lone dowitcher off by itself. It never called so I don't feel comfortable making the call, but to me it looked interesting and I'd like some help with it. Obviously it's looking pretty ratty, and that may be part of why it stood out so much from our usual long-bills. But I also notice it is relatively pale underneath and there is spotting on the sides of the breast rather than barring. But I don't really know much beyond that for trying to separate the two species since I rarely see short-billed in our area, and I'm not positive if I'm just seeing some transitional plumage as its molting. Would love any insights!

Colton V posted a topic in Help Me Identify a North American BirdHeard these at Crane Prairie Reservoir near La Pine, Oregon. Second one is hard to hear, it is a distant single chirp that occurs three times. Deschutes National Forest 6.m4a Deschutes National Forest 10.m4a
Please confirm Snow Goose
Dave Case posted a topic in Help Me Identify a North American BirdI had at first thought this might be a leucistic Canada Goose since it was hanging with some, but someone else pointed out that it was a Snow Goose. That looks right to me at this point. It was not in a location where I would have expected to see a Snow Goose and it was not in a large flock so I got confused, at least that;s my excuse and I am sticking with it! :) Delta Ponds, Eugene OR, 4/10/2020
