The first one is definitely an great egret. I have no idea about the third.

The second is a swan, for sure. But I don't know which one. I thought the only way to tell swans apart was the bill color and bands on the face.

Borealhunter, how can you tell that is a Tundra?

Boreal Hunter is definately correct about the sparrow id. On the swans, I would want to know what month the image was taken. The other two images seem to indicate summer or at least late spring images from (this year?). If the swan image was from late spring/summer, I would think that the diffault id would be trumpeter swan.

the swans were heading north in December, kind of didn't need to really know the id right away. It's nice to know I saw a kind of sparrow I have never recognized before.

Being there is only two I'd guess trumpeters.

Tundras seen in MN are always migrating and usually in big flocks.

Did they look huge?

Seems the tundras are ALWAYS, well mostly always very noisy in flight too.

BUT,

Ya just never know.

I'd say trumpeters also. There are hundreds of them that spend all winter around Monticello area.

    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?

    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
