Hi,
We've made a fantastic trip to Vancouver/Vancouver Island/Haida Gwaii in June and as we are not familiar with north american birds (we came from France) I need help to confirm my birds id.
You could find photos of the birds here with french/english names :

I've also grouped all thrushes photos (Hermit and Swainson) as I have difficulties to distinguish them at this place:

I know the ruffous tail of the Hermit can help identify it but I find nervertheless hard to seperate them.
Thanks a lot in advance for your help
David

Great collection. In the main group, I think one of your Canada Goose photos is that of a Cackling Goose. I left a comment

Thanks a lot, but I'm not sure it's a Cackling Goose because it was a big one. It seems Cackling Goose is smaller than Canadian Goose.

Bonjour David. I looked through your flickr list ... everything looks correct as far as names go ... very nice pictures! You got quite a few birds there. Couldn't tell what the thrush was hiding in the bush--sorry! :)
