ID Confirmations from the Intermountain Bird Observatory at Lucky Peak (Idaho)


Recommended Posts

Can you help me confirm these images taken yesterday 8/7/2022 at the Intermountain Bird Observatory at Lucky Peak in Idaho?

I think I have a Cassin's Vireo (Flight Image)

Female Lazuli Bunting - on branch, fairly clear image - bird is banded

Juvenile Mountain Bluebird.... it is giving me the fits.  Merlin said Western (rare for here) but will not pull up Mountain Bluebird which is infrequent here but not rare.  It has to be Mountain...right?

MacGillivray's Warbler - hiding behind branches - really was hoping for better image as it is a lifer for me.

Either a Virginia or Nashville Warbler - fairly clear image horizontal on twig - Merlin is giving me both on this bird.

Lastly, Red Crossbill (three images of same bird, confused as Merlin says it is, but the bill does not appear "crossed"  I originally thought is was a Grosbeak and did not spend enough time with it for better images... my bad as it is a lifer if it is!

Images are labeled with my guess if you can see them!

Thank you!

The last three birds look like black headed grosbeaks.

Thats what I thought, which is why I was surprised that Merlin did not list it as an option, I do understand its not 100% - I should trust myself for often!

1. Pass, leaning Cassin’s.  

2. Yes to Lazuli, not sure whether it’s a female or young male.  
 
3. Yellow- rumped Warbler

4. Yes

5. Nashville 

6. Black headed grosbeak.

With all that blue, would you assume Audubon's or Myrtle or just keep generic?
