    ID by feather

    Actually, I need to cancel this ID request. Here's why: A friend of mine pointed out that the kind of feather I found is illegal to have in possession here in the US. I had to get rid of it. Not posting a picture because it would show I had it in possession. I could get into trouble.

    ID by feather

    Hey, I got a question before I post pictures. Is it possible to identify what bird a feather came from? I found multiple feathers in a park, I would like to see if I can get them identified. Just curious. Jared

    Yet another raptor. Nampa, Idaho, USA

    Actually, I did. After I saw your post, I called that Sugar Factory and asked if the Peregrines were around. They said yes, I'm told me exactly where to go to get a good photograph. Jared

    Yet another raptor. Nampa, Idaho, USA

    Apologies for the low quality photo. Camera shutter was not set right. Went to the Nampa Sugar Factory after hearing there was a Peregrine Falcon Nest. Snapped this bird going into the nest. Is this a Peregrine Falcon? Jared

    Frustrated

    I am very frustrated. I have been trying to find and get a picture of a peregrine falcon in Boise, Idaho for a year now. No luck. I'm very angry and very frustrated because I can't find one. In addition, every time I think I have one, and I got a picture, It turned out to be something else...

    Another Raptor. Boise, Idaho, USA

    I think just solved it by going through my bird photos comparing. Here is a photo I took of a Juvenile Swainsons Hawk. Here is also a photo of this bird. I think it is a Juvenile Swainsons Hawk. What do you guys think?

    Another Raptor. Boise, Idaho, USA

    More photos. One from the back and one from the side. I couldnt get a photo from the front otherwise I would be trespassing on private property. The one from the side was accidentally taken with a 1/2000 shutter setting, the rest were 1/80. I see a white bottom. The beak has some yellow and...

    Darn, I was so hoping I finally got a picture of a peregrine falcon, which I've been trying to do for months. Oh well.

    Falcon? Boise, Idaho, USA

    I'm not trying to argue, but it seems awfully big to be a Kestrel.

    Falcon? Boise, Idaho, USA

    Took these photos in deep Boise. This bird was on a skyscraper. The wings and tail make me think it is a peregrine falcon. What do you guys think? Jared

    Question about mourning doves

    The closest dove I know of that has an orange breast is a passenger pigeon, but those I think are extinct.

    Are you able to get a picture? I think I have an idea of what kind of bird it is, I need a picture to confirm it.

    Joint Birdforum Lockdown List - April and May

    Thanks. I'll just stick with what birds I see on the property to be on the safe side. Boise Idaho does have a stay at home order until the 30th I believe.
