    Alberta Hawk - Fall 2020

    This photo was taken today - I think it's a dark-morph red-tailed hawk, but thought I'd confirm.

    Hawks - Dry Island Buffalo Jump Provincial Park, Alberta

    Yes, I thought the same. His tail didn't look right to me for Red-tailed, and his features look softer. Here's two more of him flying away in case that's helpful for anyone.

    Hawks - Dry Island Buffalo Jump Provincial Park, Alberta

    Sorry - cropped versions of 3&4. Will make it a little easier to identify!

    Hawks - Dry Island Buffalo Jump Provincial Park, Alberta

    1 & 2 are the same bird, 3 & 4 are a different bird later in the day. From this past weekend. I am guessing both are Swainson's Hawks?

    Western Canadian Birds

    So we're all agreed it's a Sparrow at least and it's either: - Clay-coloured Sparrow - Baird's Sparrow - Chipping Sparrow (juvenile) There are a lot of chipping sparrows in my neighbourhood. I've had a Clay-coloured in my backyard before, and never seen a Baird's. That's the only photo I...

    Western Canadian Birds

    I thought the colouring was right - but shape was off - wondered if maybe he was moulting? We see some funny looking Blue Jays in my yard about once a year, and so wondered if this wasn't similar.

    Western Canadian Birds

    Alberta Birds - May 2020

    Two birds from the past week in Edmonton: 1) Swainson's Thrush maybe? 2) Could be another thrush, but I was thinking maybe a warbler?

    California Birds - April 2019

    Okay, so hopefully I can add some thoughts that may help identify this more definitively. I've never seen either bird before, so it's a new one either way. The location was along the main drag (Ocean Front Walk) in Santa Monica just North of the Pier. This bird is pretty small, which...

    Yucatan Birds for ID

    Further pics Here's two more photos, of #3 and #5 in case it helps with the ID. Sounds like #3 isn't an easy one, and here you can see the brown line under the chin on #5.

    Western Kingbird or Cassin's Kingbird?

    Thanks - what's the indicator for Cassin's? I thought the colouring looked relatively light...
