Recommended Posts

in the middle of February I was in Las Vegas and went  to both the Clark County Wetlands and the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve. I have several that i have not been able to ID fully and requist confirmation or correction

the first is of a group of ducks...mallards and what i believe to be American Wigeons.  There is a duck in the foreground in front of the Wigeon that I am not sure of.  ID help please

Pretty sure #4 is a Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher.  It's a bit far north for one this time of year, and the apparently broken eyering had me concerned.  Any other shots of #4?

There was a report on EBird of one a few years back, and I think I would second the ID.

#3   I want to say looks like a Orange-crowned Warbler to me which has many, many reports this year in that location.

#5  I am bad with shore birds, and can not figure this one out.
