Be warned, as I TRY to catch up on old checklists(and eBird) I will have LOTS more of these to keep you all busy. ?

Want to check on a hawk. Have pictures of a red-tailed flying so this is probably that but not a good photo and, what's hanging?

Then some ducks. I wrote them down at the time as mallards which I can still kind of see as being possible... in August, maybe they're still in eclipse plumage? The one in the back left, the bill looks weird to me.

This one is just for fun. No idea. The bill looks THICK... maybe just a cardinal.

This next one, I just don't know. From one angle almost looks like it has the right color to possibly be a green heron... then, I'm not convinced. Weird angles of whatever it is...

I believe I see yellow on the legs making this a least sandpiper

And this one(if it's the same bird in both photos) I think I see black legs/feed under the mud, shortish bill... I'm thinking semipalmated sandpiper?

Young cardinal with the bill still dark and no facial markings yet?

Looks like a coot to me.  First photo shows lobes or webbing on the lifted left foot.  I see white on the bill in the second photo.

I do have AMCO on my list for that day... perhaps I tried getting these poor images to show something wrong with the wing? I sure can't remember back that far. HA
