I don't know of any books...

Well, it probably isn't breeding habitat for Worm-eating but it is migration and in our area the few that have been seen over the years are usually not in good breeding habitat. I thought of Chipping...

Duck ID, NY

Anyone care to make a guess as to what these are. I only had my 18-135mm so I wasn't able to get the best photos as they were far away.

I think they are Hooded Mergansers.

The photo isn't mine but I saw at a local place very similar whitewash (I didn't think about Owls until I got home). I'm going to go back tonight and see if I can find any pellets or other clues.
