  7. 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.
  8. 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.

  22. Hello! I am a beginning bird enthusiast and spotted a bird that was mostly grey with a whitish stomach and yellow lower stomach and underside. It was pretty small, maybe smaller than a house finch and I couldn't hear it where I saw it. Based on some searching I think it might be a Warbling Vireo? Here are some photos with mediocre quality, sorry about that: Habitat: Scrubby Desert, Urban Desert Location: Central Arizona, New River Area north of Phoenix Date: October, after some good rainfall My phone might have picked up on the yellow a bit more than in person, but it was definitely there. Thank you!
  23. This flycatcher was seen today in riparian area in Maricopa County, Arizona. Please help with ID
  24. Thanks in advance for your interest and/or help. We have a woodpecker of some type that just loves to drink from our hummingbird feeder, which hangs from our patio roof, even though it’s awkward for him/her. It’s much more skittish than the hummingbirds, and if I attempt to sneak out the patio door to get a closer look, it flies off before I even make it out the door, usually landing in a bushy tree in our neighbor’s yard over the back fence. Well, I decided to take a bunch of pictures of it through the window from a distance, so as not to scare it away. Then I cropped them and put them in an animated format. The lighting wasn’t great in the morning, and all you could see was a black silhouette, but you can see a bit of it’s feet/claws and tail feathers. I tried it again late in the afternoon with much better results. If you watch the second animation all the way through, you’ll see a better example of its coloring, and that it has a red spot on it’s crown. I think it’s a very light brownish gray or tannish gray color on its head and underneath, with blackish stripes on its back/wings/tail feathers. We live in the North Phoenix metro area, and I took the photos today, 8/12/18. We live near a golf course and man made lake, but our back yard hasn’t been landscaped yet. No greenery or even desert plants or cacti back there. We put the hummingbird feeder up only a couple weeks ago, and I noticed the woodpecker for the first time about a week ago. He has been by more and more frequently every day. Thanks again for your interest and help in identifying this woodpecker. I wonder if the sugar water in the feeder is good for him/her.
