  4. Don't remember the exact title but we had a similar thread on the old forum. Got pictures of common birds that you're proud of then post them here.

  5. It is a Common Raven. Looks to me like it is just carrying something in its beak which Corvids often do.

  6. I havent seen Finches in months, in fact I havent seen anything but some house sparrows, and a handfull of Mourning Doves now and then for a very long time. These cold fronts coming thru are starting to knock them down this way. Been having a lot of Blujays, Carolina Chickadees, and my favorite the Titmouse. All hands on deck, ready and waiting their arrivals!

  7. I had my first backyard Purple Finches ever last weekend, one male and two females. The same day I had a Eastern Towhee for the first time this season. Mid-week the first juncos arrived. Today the American Goldfinches showed up in force.

  10. Yes, the eyering really pops on these birds. Almost like it was borrowed from a Solitary Sandpiper. Beyond that, the fairly drab streaky appearance, face pattern, bill shape and color all look good for Vesper. Another mark not always seen, but visible in your photo is the rusty shoulder patch. For a lifer, definitely wait for a second opinion.

  20. Wet birds can be difficult or impossible to sort out. Here the bird in the first two photo is fairly legible. With the heavily streaked breast, fine, dark, slightly decurved bill, short wing bar/patch it is your Cape May. The bird in the second set of photos is more of a challenge but it still looks good for your Blackpoll. The orange feet of a Blackpoll aren't visible in these shots but that is a good mark to look for. The coloring looks good along with the fine streaking on the upper back. The bill is shorter and more blunt that on the Cape May.
