Bobcat commented on by luvnature Tucson, Arizona, USA6 years ago

The UA Wild Cat Research and Conservation Center would really love to see your Bobcat photos for identification and studying how well they are living in urban areas. Their website: http://www.uawildcatresearch.org/bobcat_...

I have Bobcat photos too. See my most recent photos of 2 kittens here: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/374...

Regal Horned Lizards are declining. They used be seen every day where I live in Tucson but now we don't see any. Do you see more than just the one in the photo? If you can get a photo of more than one this would be good for scientists studying them whom I've talked with at U of A in Tucson. As tajminator suggested add the Reptiles of Arizona mission to your missions list so you can this mission so this photo shows up in this mission's photo gallery.

Immature Cooper's hawk commented on by luvnature Illinois, USA6 years ago

It's an immature not juvenile Cooper's Hawk. Juvenile means a bird that is still in nest and unable to fly.

I think I got fooled by the tail fanned out in the second photo but when held down the tail is rounded so it's a an adult Cooper's Hawk.

Yes, adult Cooper's Hawk; rounded tail and red eyes indicate that it is.

This not immature because red eye means it's an adult. The square looking tail means it's a Sharp-shinned and to me it appears to be this size too. http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Sharp...

It's either a Rufous or Allen's Hummingbird. They are very difficult to tell apart. Go read: http://fieldguidetohummingbirds.wordpres...

Abert's towhee commented on by luvnature Tucson, Arizona, USA6 years ago

I also live in Tucson. I listened to video. To me it sounds like a Cardinal or a Pyrrhuloxia. Go read about Pyrrhuloxia: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Pyrrh...
While the do have a crest they will hold it down a lot.
The second photo looks like an Abert's Towhee.
It could be an immature Cardinal, if not Pyrrhuloxia.
