First 2 pix when taken, gotta be dead easy to ID, nope, poss Song Variant?
No3 I've got as a Lincoln's
No4, again thought it would be easy, grey headed, rufuos chest streaks, sharp shinned variant?
Appreciate any input from the experts.
Filed as Dusky and Hammond's, thanks one and all for your time and expertise. They are all lifers for me so I'm well chuffed. A couple of sparrows in the pipeline possibly, though I've found a thread by Lisa Williams covering Lincolns and Song so it's work in progress at the moment. All the best...
The pix were taken Apr this year on my first birding trip to western USA.
So far then;
# 1 Dark eyed Junco
# 2 House Finch ( using Sibley's I'd got to female Blue Grosbeak having only seen the red type house finch, I note now that Sibley's mentions orange hue due to diet- thanks).
# 3 Ash...
Would appreciate some help with the attached.
No 1 was taken in the Grand Canyon and I suspect it's a Dark eyed Junco, the colour of the bill is throwing me a little, should be pink but I don't think it's anything else....... or is it? No 2 believe it or not was taken on the Strip in...
