Colorado River Part 2

Recommended Posts

Again, all taken last weekend at he Colorado River at Bullhead City, AZ.  

1.  Unknown Humming Bird, I'm guessing Anna's, but looks different than the Anna's I see in Southern California. First and second picture are the same bird, third is from a different day but I believe is the same species.

2.  Hawk.  Sharp-shinned?

3. Ring necked duck?

5.  I'm not sure?  Canvass Back?  Ring necked?

9.  American Wigeon?

10.  Not a great picture.  I'm guessing America Wigeon and Green winged Teal.

11.  And a rare sight the locals assured me, a Bald Eagle.

That's it from this weekend at least for new species.  Lots of Osprey, cormorants, Alberts Towhee.  Possibly other duck species, but difficult to get with out a boat or a better lens. 

Thanks for your help and expertise

10 appears to have American Wigeon, Green-winged Teal, and perhaps something else. All of the birds in 1 look like Anna's, and I agree that 3 is a Lesser Scaup.
