  4. Look exactly like what I saw when in Northern OH about a month ago. About a dozen swarming around an open field. I ID'd them as Northern Rough-Winged Swallow also.

  6. Well not being any kind of experienced bird person, I'm going by childhood and regional knowledge, I'm 61 years old and i was always told these were sparrows by grandpa (other birds on trailer, I'll get better pics of them and post later), in my humble opinion I'm 98% sure ALL the others are sparrows, i think the green that C.Spencer refers to (really bad phone pic) may be the sunflower heads i pull off to feed them, i estimate the flock near me at around 75 - 125, they fill the trees. The thing that threw me was i did not see it's red coloring till it faced me, the picture seems to be brightening the redness, it is much more subtle to the naked eye. also he is solo, no others have been sighted, perhaps he hangs with them for lack of same species company :). thanks again

  7. The first bird is a Black-billed Nightingale Thrush. The second one appears to be a Sooty Thrush. My Costa Rica guide shows them as all-black, but everything else fits, and I wouldn't be surprised if youngsters were brown like this.

  8. Agree with Northern Rough-winged Swallow.

  9. Ignoring the yellow belly which is not a definitive field mark for YBFL, shape/structure looks off for YB here. They usually have a "petite" or "compact" appearance, distinct eyering, and a more greenish coloring overall.

  10. All of our empids show a yellowish belly in fresh plumage (lighting can be a factor as well). This is one of the major pitfalls in empid ID, resulting many erroneous reports of Yellow-bellied. This looks like a Traill's to me.

  12. NRWS, I think it's the lighting that makes it look a little darker. Looks almost identical to a picture I have of one in my backyard.

  17. I think @scall0way is right - one Canada, one domestic Swan Goose (with some domestic Graylag in it), and three domestic Swan/Graylag X Canada Geese hybrids.

  19. It's mainly the compact shape and dark breast that make me think phoebe.

  21. Is it too soon to bump this post ? I'm getting a bit of a Vesper vibe and maybe Lincoln's but sparrows are a challenge for me. I'll wait for the Sparrow specialists... @The Bird Nuts and others.

  24. Well... i guess there is now a time limit to edit a post. After uploading the pics, I wanted to edit to add the species names... but was not allowed to. They are: 1. Red-backed Shrike 2. Mediterranean Gull(on left) with Black-headed Gulls on right(not lifers) 3. Little Owl 4. Black-winged Stilt 5. Greater Flamingo 6. Little Bustard 7. Citril Finch 8. Eurasian Eagle Owl. I have plenty of others, but maybe I'll post another day. And BTW, I didn't want to do a trip report anyway.(shame all the old TR are gone)
