  3. They're migrating right now, so they can't afford to stick tight to water features.

  4. Orange crowned. There's a little blurry breast streaking, a more prominent broken eye ring and weaker facial pattern then you'd see in a Tennessee.

  5. Hi, I'm new on the forum and new at bird photography so hopefully this is not a stupid question. Attached are some pictures I took at Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge in Colorado on July 14. They look like Common Nighthawks to my untrained eyes. However, I took these pictures at around 1:00 PM. Does it make sense to see two nighthawks flying around in the middle of the day?

  9. Looks good for LB also. Shape/structure/posture are the clues here.

  15. Agreed. I’m thinking it’s a HY (hatch year) bird with that grape patch. Plumage also seems pretty fresh in addition.

  16. Eastern Wood-Pewees have larger, flatter bills, longer primaries, and usually more distinct wingbars than Eastern Phoebes. Eastern Phoebes are usually browner with darker heads than the grayer/greener EAWPs. There are also differences in proportions and posture. Eastern Phoebes perch in more of a hunched position and their eyes tend to look smaller and closer to the bill due to their wider (or deeper) heads.

  17. Sadly, there is no way I could have taken as good a photo with a phone as the one @Lady Tiff submitted above. I'm either going to spend the rainy weekend figuring out how to use it effectively or just quit trying.

  20. I agree with Blue-winged Teal on 2. Proportions are too stocky for Shoveler and the feathers by the base of the bill are pale. I think the bill is not as long as it appears in the picture and distortion is blending the bill with ripples on the water's surface. The Sparrow is a juvenile, hence the odd plumage. Molted feathers around the rump of vent could contribute to the long-tailed appearance.

  21. The short tail appears to be a molt issue. The plumage says House Wren, and the posture fits just fine. (In general, be careful of posture in photos unless the bird's obviously at rest -- a photo grabs a moment in time, and may not be representative -- look at shots of Major League pitchers, and imagine holding your arm that way!) Pyle doesn't list any hybrids for either species, although that doesn't mean there aren't any.

  22. I'm not sure that we can rule out Blue-winged Teal for number 2.

  23. 1. Probably Solitary Sandpiper, but that tail barring really speaks to Spotted. Both have spots on back. Facial pattern makes it a prob Solitary. 2. Northern Shoveler. Nothing else with that profile. 3. Looks like Mallards in back. Wood Duck in front. 4. Odd sparrow. That is a crazy long tail. Has to be a trick of the eye, or weird angle or something. Any additional pic would help.
