    This is the first tiny bird shot. He got in my view trying to get a snowey. So I just shot it instead. :>))

    Thought it was or is a sparrow. But not sure.

    Hi Gale -

    I can't help with the IDs, but these are great images. I especially like the photo of the first little guy. Looks like he/she has a pointed bill, so it isn't a duck. That's as helpful as I can get. :)

    Cheers,
    Gordon

    Hi again Gale -

    I just leafed through my Sibley and I give up! Duck or whatever, I didn't see anything close. So I'm going to be really curious too!

  8. Ok here is my guess, the duck is a type of grebe and the little bird might be an eastern meaodwlark

    Darn. The first place I looked in Sibley's was the grebe section, but I couldn't find a match. Still can't. But the National Geographic field guide has a drawing that is virtually identical to Gale's photo. The mark that I missed in the photo is the black circle on the bill. Thought it was part of that delicious looking dinner hanging from the bill. :?

    Mike - good IDs.

    Gale - again, good pics.
