I just had a friend call me wanting an ID of a bird she saw fly past her car and I was wondering if any of you could help as I have no clue.
Sighted this morning prior to 10 am on KCID road in Middleton near the Boise River
size: about the size of a Magpie or a little smaller
color: black and white
Had a beak similar to a duck, but shorter. She said the bird had a slim body and did not look like a duck.
Anyone have any idea what kind of bird this could be?
