    Tree-clinging birds - US, Northwest Oregon semi-rural near mixed woodland and creek

    Not immediately sure on the vertical measurement - but that's a great idea to go and measure it. I'll look into that. And yes, definitely the same individual. The video is actually an edit from a single continuous take, but since it's taken using a phone, there are periods where the view is...

    Tree-clinging birds - US, Northwest Oregon semi-rural near mixed woodland and creek

    Thanks! I was mostly going on size for the downy vs hairy ID - I will see if I can get some better pictures tomorrow. Here are some of my pictures of the nuthatches - most are very similar to this, but there's another larger one that shows up occasionally that I'm less sure about. I haven't...

    Tree-clinging birds - US, Northwest Oregon semi-rural near mixed woodland and creek

    Greetings - my first post here in many years. We have just moved to a new location in NW Oregon (97124 ZIP code) further out from the suburbs, and have found ourselves with a multitude of new and interesting birds to identify. We have several feeders set up with different seeds/suet, and have...

    Rufous-Sided Towhees

    A very long time since I last posted, but I thought I would post what's been going on under my bedroom window for the past week and a half or so. This starts a week ago last saturday morning, when I heard my wife yell something I didn't quite catch just outside the window. I was still in bed...

    Species identification help

    I don't know about whether the feeders affect their behavior at all, but I am in the right location for that species at this time of year. He came back earlier today, by the way... and brought a friend. They didn't hang around for too long though. I'll see if I get any more. Regards Duncan

    Species identification help

    forgot to mention - these are all pictures of the same bird. As I said, the color in the head changes dramatically as it turns around, which is why I posted several angles. Regards Duncan

    Species identification help

    thanks! Having looked at some pictures in the galleries here, and looking at the distribution maps, I was thinking that that's what it would be. It's actually only just snowed here for the first time today, but it looks like it will stay around for a while. The nectar in the feeder was...

    Hello from Oregon

    thanks to everybody for the welcome! K C, Hummingbirds do look somehow a little out of place in the snow... but actually we've seen quite a few recently. The one I saw today (I'm thinking that it's probably an Anna's hummingbird, based on gallery pictures on this site) hung around outside my...

    Species identification help

    Can somebody help me identify what this is? I took these pictures earlier today, and I'm fairly sure I haven't seen one of these before. [edit] I should add, the red flashes on the head are only visible when viewed from the front, and the head appears to turn black as it turns away. All these...

    Hello from Oregon

    Hello everybody! I won't say that I'm exactly an active birder, but rather I just wait for the birds come to me... I have a rather interesting variety of birds that show up at my window (I have a couple of feeders there) and usually there's a digital SLR lying around. I found this site from a...
