  5. I know neither of them are great, but I doubt very many people here have photos of both. Hutton's Vireo.
  6. Now I see, I thought the thing that is the bill was actually the head.
  7. Today
  8. @DLecy I often wonder how bad it must be for Texans to differentiate extremely similar eastern and western species, which in most of the rest of the country can be identified purely by range, and many of which were once conspecific. Examples include the meadowlarks (of which there are now three), grackles, towhees, wood-pewees, ibises, ravens...
  9. Photo taken today, Skidaway Island, Chatham County, GA. 8/14/22 This appeared to be a little larger than a Pine warbler. Went to a seed feeder and not to the suet feeder ! It looks to be molting feathers on the head. A Pine warbler ? Thanks for looking.
  10. The infamous GHOW begging call that SO often gets misidentified as a Barn Owl call. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/474887121
  11. Yes, in the west during fall migration "Empidonax sp." is a very responsible method for sorting flycatchers as they are often silent that time of year. Even all presumed Pac-slope Flycatchers get the "Western" Pac-slope/Cordilleran treatment in coastal CA during fall months. Right now in my county we are trying to figure out a good approach to the annual Allen's/Rufous debate, but many/most birds should responsibly be left as a slash.
  12. What is the bird in this audio recording? It is not the clearest sound quality, but you can make our the squawk in the background. It usually stops making noise when we try to record, so this is the best we could get! We have never set eyes on it, but hear it consistently throughout the day from across the canal in eastern coastal Long Island, NY. https://soundcloud.com/michelle-leonetti/mystery-bird?si=ee43e37d91da487b803c8c47f6e764b0&utm_source=clipboard&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=social_sharing
  13. Looks more like an immature Ring-billed to me.
  14. Wing and bill shape/proportions.
