    Mountain Blue Bird or Western Blue Bird?

    Possibly a female?

    Dunno on the blue birds.

    As for the meadowlard - yes. Most likely the western variety based on your location - although I can't tell the difference.

    It's the 2nd day of spring so I've moved your post to a new thread.

    Yay, spring!
    Please do not edit or repost my images.

    What's a Loupe for anyway?

    Cool catch, TF!

    I'm pretty sure about these, but wanted conformation. Excuse the crappy shot, if I got them in focus I blew the exposure, got the exposure I blew the focus. Oh, and I have several shots where I did both

    This guy landed among a bunch of Red-Breasted Mergansers. I thought at first he was just another male Red-Breasted, but then got a slightly better look. Male Common Merganser?
