  4. Immature Red-tailed Hawk. I met this guy on a jobsite near Canobie Lake in Salem, NH. It was great fun to watch him throw his small stick in the air and pounce on it over and over. Preoccupied with his exercise he (?) paid me little mind and allowed me to get pretty close for some nice shots.

  10. 1-2 are Eastern Wood-Pewees. I'm not sure if the last bird is the same.

  11. That's one of the reasons I give when I recommend people buy a printed field guide, no matter how many electronic resources they have access to.

  13. A Yellow-headed Blackbird! Just when I feel like I'm getting a hang on identifying some common birds, the lady-birds throw me off. Thanks. Actually, I'd never heard of a Sora before, before I went looking through the bird book for this one.

  18. Adult female Baltimore actually show a fair bit of black mottling on the head. I'd say it's a youngster.

  19. This looks better for a young Pigeon Guillemot. The white on the back appears to be on the wing coverts -- Marbled have all-dark wings with pale markings on the scapulars starting to develop about now. The bill also appears rather long and heavy for a Marbled Murrelet.

  20. Too orange for an Orchard - it's a Baltimore Oriole. Don't know if we can tell if it's an adult female or juvenile from these photos, though.

  27. Thanks! I'll definitely keep working on it. For now, how about some yellow! (Yellow is one of my favorite colors, so I'm glad some of the birds decided to hang out near the flowers.) More yellow, for good measure:
