Colorado River Water birds help Part 1

Recommended Posts

All ake last weekend in Bullhead City, AZ on the Colorado River.  I'll have a few posts since there are a lot of photos.  It was my first time there in the winter so many winter ducks.  I'm starting with the ones I'm fairly confident on for confirmation. 

1. Ring-necked Duck

2. American Wigeon

3. Lesser Scaup

4. Green Winged Teal

9.  Unknown Gull, probably ringed bill and maybe too far away to ID.

10.  And a swallow that I'm unsure of

thank you for all help.  The next parts will have more unknown to me, I'm guessing winter plumage or immature.

All are correct, the sandpipers are Least, pass on the faraway gull, and the swallow is a Northern Rough-winged.

Thank you for year help, as always!!!  The swallow is a new one for me as well as the Green winged teal, the lesser scaup, and the ring necked.

Agreed. But pass on the gulls.

It’s probably safe to assume the gull is a Ring-billed. The only other possibility is California, which would probably be darker than that.
