    Identify long continuous call (Colorado front range)

    "Rather like ... owl" makes me consider perhaps a Eurasian Collared Dove, as I always think of an owl whenever I have heard one calling,

    Afghanistan Warblers

    This morning I was able to sit out in a garden in the city, and there were at least a couple of warblers flitting through the flowering trees. I think that they are Leaf Warblers, but I have very little experience with these and I am not certain if that is correct. My Guess is that these are...

    Gulls - Alberta, Canada, 11 Oct

    Hello, I photographed a couple of gulls that were with a large number of Canada Goose along a city park lake. The one gull, on the left, I am quite certain is a Ring-billed gull. But the second gull, on the right, with a pinkish bill, is a bit less obvious to me. any ideas?

    Bird of prey, France/Spain border

    I am asking for help for a friend who asked for my help in ID'ing a couple of birds of prey. These were photographed today (11 Oct.) in France, along the border with Spain. I am not certain what she saw and I hope someone might help ID these birds. Thanks

    Unidentified hawk - Canada, Alberta

    Thanks all. Once I put the Harrier idea aside, and think of this bird as an accipiter, then this bird certainly is much more "stocky" (regarding size of torso in relation to wings; in relation to projection of neck in front of body) than "projecting", and so I also see this as Sharp-shined, not...

    Canada - Near Edmonton, uncommon sparrow confusion

    Hello, I photographed this sparrow in an agricultural area, south of edmonton. In the field it seemed a bit unusual for a Savannah sparrow, which is commonly seen here. Now, looking at this photo I am sure it can only be either a Baird's Sparrow, or a LeConte's Sparrow, but either would be an...

    Sparrow - in Canada by Edmonton

    Hello, Today while birding along a creek through barley fields, I photographed this bird. My assumption is that it is a juvenile sparrow, based upon the fact that its face seems to be sparrow like, but the streaking on the breast does not seem quite like any sparrow I have seen around this area...

    Warbler - Canada, south of Edmonton - July 5

    thank for considering and sharing yourviewpoint. That makes the most sense. I think I was only able to see illustrations of male Yellow Warblers, with the streaking on the chest, and that caused my doubts about the ID.

    Warbler - Canada, south of Edmonton - July 5

    Hello, I have seen a very yellow bird, which I had thought was a Yellow Warbler. However I now wonder if I have this wrong and it might be something else. Wilson's Warbler? What do you think this is? best, Z

    Is this a Purple Finch? (Northern California)

    based on the red being fairly restricted to the face and breast, I lead towards House Finch

    Canada -South of Edmonton, Shorebirds.

    While I was observing some grebes in a reed lined marsh, a group of birds, perhaps sandpipers, burst across my field of vision. I am not sure where they came from, and did not see them land, but I took a photo. Can these be identified? Z.
