  1. Hi - I could use some help identifying birds from a recent (August) trip to Wyoming's Wind River range. This includes three woodpeckers that I am having trouble distinguishing, one bird that I think I identified, and one that is puzzling me. Woodpeckers All seen between 8000' and 8500'. I've looked at various guides to telling them apart but overall am not sure. Bird A - I think this is a Hairy Woodpecker, based on the head, wings, and white body? Bird B - Bird C - not sure? Very similar to B, but body is spotted / barred. Bird D - Western Tanager? Also seen around 8500', on the ground in the forest. Bird E - No good ideas. Colors kind of remind me of a varied thrush, but the patterns don't fit. Seen around 12300', on rocks at a mountain pass. Thanks for any help!
  2. This Hawk was recorded during mid-golden hour. I thought the Red Tail's silhouette as it flew away was interesting and beautiful as captured with the slow shutter speed (1/30s). Taken with Nikon Coolpix P950 at ~1000 mm focal length. Taken on 28 Jan after sunset.
  3. After missing a passing insect, it ruffles its feathers then regurgitates some food (left over Chock Cherry pit and insect). Taken with Nikon Coolpix P950 at a distance of 150 feet on a hot August afternoon near Cheyenne, Wyoming.
  4. Using my Nikon Coolpix P950 at 1000mm and 2000mm focal lengths, I captured a young Meadow Lark preening and singing. I slowed down the bird's song by 50% in the last part of this clip.
  5. These European Collared Doves have become a fixture around my house this year as my trees are starting to provide shelter and a good nesting location for these shy birds. Focal Length (35mm format) - 1600 mm For more videos, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OUZEfCjIiI

  7. This bird has been a regular during the past month. It seems to know when I am photographing it. I produced a short video clip of it, worth a peek: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfvxkepe20c&list=PLFOag6HjHS4cuI3TU_ZQZrX4xXlZvtM9e&index=2
  8. Can anyone confirm my suspicions that this is a Swainson's Hawk? Taken today (4/22) 6 miles northeast of Cheyenne, Wyoming.
  9. Sorry for the small image but I'm hoping that the profile of this large bird on my roof can be identified. I'm located 6 miles northeast of Cheyenne, Wyoming. Taken ~3:50PM today (4/22). Possible craine? Thanks, Jan
  10. This Western Prairie songbird is really a beauty. It knew I was photographing it. Taken about 100 feet away. Focal Length (35mm format) - 800 mm with Nikon Coolpix P950.
  11. While filming clouds this morning, this bird flew by the instant I snapped the shutter. It was about 20 feet away. Thanks, Jan
  12. Was going through some vacation photos from last year and found a few photos I'm not sure of. There were some teal in Jackson, WY and I know some (most) of them were Green-winged, but this one had a larger bill. Also looks like there might be some damage near base of bill. Please advise. This was 8/29/2017, Jackson, WY.
  13. Hi, This bird appears to be a Lark Bunting. The photo taken in early June in NE Wyoming. The peculiarity is the yellow head. Any feedback on that? Thanks, Dan
