White Stripe on underside of wing of soaring bird

Posted Sunday 23rd February 2014 at 04:27 by LifeIsGood2
That is all I got so far. Books point to Night Hawk or Black Vulture, so far. Today, Feb. 22, it was soaring high above our back yard area. The wings seemed horizontal and the color of the bird seemed dark but as it turned to the side, the belly seemed a little lighter color - light brown maybe.

February 20, 2014 Killdeer and Goose?

Posted Friday 21st February 2014 at 14:53 by LifeIsGood2
While in town, I saw a small group of killdeer near a parking lot across from our City Lake. Not too unusual, but I had never taken the time to look at its markings and identifying it.

I will need to spend some time identifying the water fowl at the City Lake because as I flipped though pictures in my field guide etc., I realized that I am not certain if I saw a goose or a swan. This is my main reason for birding right now. I realize that even though birds are around me all of...
