HelloCan someone confirm if this is a Tufted Duck.I don't see a tuft and that's why I'm wondering.Maybe the head is too wet for the tuft to show?I've checked out the Cornell All About Birds site and I can't find Tufted Duck listed using their search…Continue

Started by Isabelle M. in ID Requests. Last reply by Joanne Savage Jun 11. 5 Replies

I've been trying to identify this bird for a couple weeks now with no luck. This pair was spotted at the Sackville Waterfowl Park at the end of the May. I thought it might be a chipping sparrow, but the head doesn't quite look the same. Any ideas?Continue

    "I am now more convinced of 10659 related to the strong dark basal dash which shows a slight bit of whitish where 10660 shows some tan and a less dark basal line. The dark on the costa also looks like it extends well down as with 10659. The moth is a…"

    "Like Nancy's dilemma, I have looked at suggestions over and over. Again 6 of one, half a dozen of the other. This will be edited to Metarranthis sp. [6825,6826, 6827 or 6828]."

    "The bottom of the forewing does look like  obliqua, Stewart. The color has more pink too.  I've been getting the volubilis now for a couple of weeks...and this one seemed a bit different.  "

    "Very nice, Nancy! I would agree with your Goodell's Arches ID and I think it's a pretty uncommon moth. I'm sure Tony could confirm or correct. Your #2 is a very common moth at my lights (though I haven't seen any yet this season)…"
