Sharp Shinned or Cooper's Hawk?

I think Sharp Shinned by the size and very tip of it's tail.

Dirt Claud - we will bird all day Sunday as well. Our flight is at about 6pm so that is our only obligation. I think we'll make the decision on where we'll be on Saturday. Stay in touch via phone and we can let you know what time and where.

What is the story on the mordor birds upthread? Genetic issues? Over-zealous mate preening?

Bob, I agree with you that it is a Sharpie but not because of the 'square' tail.
That is pretty hard to call. What speaks to me is the rounded head, the
smaller size of the head, and the seemingly larger eye which also appears
to be more centrally located.

Sorry for me, but I'm out of running for birdapalooza. Work, domestic bliss, work, a ray of sun in the PNW and work demand my presence here.


I'm racking my brain for a birder April Fools prank for this thread, but can't come up with one comparable to a "bolting of Double Cross" thread. .... Are we humorless, or is it just me?

Reilly...I was talking about the lack of white on the tip of the tail. :-)


Looking for anyone who wants to go to Columbia in early May. The birding is amazing.

It looks like I am in. I am looking forward to learning something from you hotties!What's the plan after Palos V? The LA stuff is an unknown to me but I do know the OC and more than one rarity. I look at the LA RBA and don't know park names etc. The OC is my backyard (Inland Empire next best) and I have been birding addictively for the last year but would love to see some new locations.


My boy Jake and I are going on a 3 day Death Valley trip first, leaving tomorrow way AM. I am hoping to see Sage Thrasher etc.
