  1. Thank you psweet for the id Charlie, a great bird indeed! I had seen a nightjar flying around the area a few times over the past 3 days, but when I went out to change the hummer feeder, I was surprised to see it resting in one of my trees. That made my day 3 hours later and it is still in the same tree, so I took a few more pics: nighthawk by Andrew Lyall, on Flickr nighthawk by Andrew Lyall, on Flickr

  3. Hello. Photo taken today at my home in Corpus Christi, TX. Is this a Common or a Lesser? Thank you. nighthawk by Andrew Lyall, on Flickr

  4. Paying attention to bird behavior is a big part of birding. I'd take a guess that this bird was wagging its tail up and down, something an Eastern Kingbird wouldn't do.

  6. I would lean towards blue-winged for both, given the size (green-winged teal are much smaller), white near the base of the bill, and overall gray coloration.

  8. Given the location, there's very little chance this is a Fish Crow, I think. The only records in the area this year have been right on the shores of Lake Ontario. There were a few records a bit south of you in 2012 (around Guelph), and one record at Belwood Lake that same year.

  9. I don't think I'll get any sound out of this photo no matter how much manipulation i do. Thanks for the info. I'll have to listen to some recordings so I know for future crow encounters.

  10. Both are Mallards. The one on the right is a male (note the yellow bill) and the one on the left is a female/immature.

  12. Looks like a Common -- the white band on the primaries is close to the wrist, under the tertials. On Lesser, it's farther out, near the tip of the tertials.

  14. Eastern Phoebe. Note the dark eye and black beak. They're a smaller cousin of a Kingbird.

  15. If that's the top end of a 2" x 4" that he's perched on, that's relatively spacious. I've see them jam themselves in to smaller areas. My parents have roll-up blinds for their patio, and of course they roll up unevenly. CAWRs regularly tuck themselves into concavity at one end of the roll.

  18. Sorry for not mentioning my location. I am in Mandeville, Louisiana. Carolina Wren was one of the possibles to me, based on the the glimpse I felt I had of the bill and a white stripe on the head and matching to the picture here http://identify.whatbird.com/obj/677/overview/Carolina_Wren.aspx The roosting behavior you identify from this pic is exactly what we have seen the last several nights. It surprises me such a small bird was roost solo.

  19. Carolina Wrens are known for roosting in the corners of buildings with their back feathers puffed out like this. Remember to include location so we can rule out other species.

  20. Thinking Painted Bunting for #2 and I can confirm Yellow Warbler for #3.

  24. I'm not super convinced that this is a Warbling. More Philadelphia vibes.
