Hi, today in Comox BC. I was giving my camera's digital zoom a workout trying to ID birds way out too far for my 8x25s to handle. I'm assuming most of these are unidentifiable, but you folks are wizards so it's worth a shot. Please let me know if any of these are identifiable in any way.

1. Harlequin? ID based largely on them being washed off the rock by an enormous wave and hopping right back up.





2. Ring-billed?


3. Bonaparte's? There were a pile of them around inshore, this could have been a separate group.


4. This was flying like a turkey vulture but I now think it's a raven - can't decide whether to go with my eyes or the photoDSCN5207.thumb.JPG.1d5b3b215c3f7570b7054caea5b0dc4a.JPG

5. A gull? Something? It looks odd to me but I can't figure out why.



6. Glaucous-winged?
