These photos were taken in June while on a trip to Alaska. I am unsure about ID and hope you can help. Thanks much.
Gull - I thought it was Mew Gull, but the bill looks too big.
Bird - no idea - ?
Yellowlegs - greater or lesser? Both breed in the area I believe.
Thanks for your help.
These two photos were taken in Nome Alaska in June. The tour guides did identify them, but unfortunately I did managed to lose my notes.
I believe the sandpiper is Semi-palmated in its breeding colors.
The guillemot (at least that is what I think) is a black guillemot in non-breeding colors...
These photos were taken a couple of days ago. There was a small group mucking around in small in a somewhat muddy water channel. I am thinking they are Least Sandpipers (yellow legs in both - one a bit muddy). Appreciate your help with ID. Thank you.
Took all photos yesterday. I am hoping you can help ID. Bird-A I believe is a Dunlin beginning to molt.
Bird-B looks like a Least Sandpiper (at least that is what I am hoping). Birds C & D I have no idea although they look like the same species.
Thank you for your help.
Took these two photos a couple of days ago in San Rafael. They were in a sanitation plant pond. I am thinking that Gull-A is a Mew Gull, byt uncertain about Gull-B. Both birds had yellow legs. Appreciate help with ID. Thank you.
Took these photos a couple of days ago near Oakland, CA. I am assuming the birds in Photo-A are dowitchers and Photo-B is an yellowlegs,
I am guessing the dowitchers are short-billed and the yellowlegs the greater version. Very much appreciate help. Thanks much.
I took this photo near Oakland CA yesterday. There was a large flock of geese, some of whom were clearly Canada and some more like the bird in this photo - my impression was that this bird was smaller, had a short neck, larger white patch on face and a smaller beak. I believe it is a Cackling...
I took this photo at the in Oakland. I have seen numerous Great Egrets but this particular bird impressed me with its sheer bulk and size. The egrets I have seen before in comparison, appeared to be far more thinner and smaller in size. Hence the question. Is this a a white morph of the...
Sorry about this.... but Gulls have a way of confusing me completely! Here are five Gulls, all photos taken at the same location, at Carkeek Park two weeks ago. I have a notion that Gull A is ring-billed, but after that I am at a loss. Would very much appreciate help with ID. Thank you.
