  3. Yes, the shorter tail plus the small, rounded head with steep forehead, compact body with wide shoulders, prominent supercilium, smaller-looking beak, and bug-eyed look.

  7. I would be comfortable calling this a Hoary I think, the bill is on the larger side, but everything else matches up quite nicely. A shot of the rump would be nice to look at though.

  12. These are grebes... I'm leaning towards horned grebe myself but I seem to have some trouble with them unless I get really good views. Wait and see what someone else says but, they're grebes... horned or eared.

  13. Sorry, didn't realize you already said "small, rounded head." As far as the legs go, there are some pretty thin-legged Cooper's out there (mostly males, I'd assume) and I've seen "experts" argue about how thick or thin they think the legs are on a certain bird, so I don't like to rely on or even mention that most of the time, but it can be considered along with other field marks.

  15. I'll get better with these thrushes but, I think it's a hermit. I THINK I see some of that more reddish-brown color on the edge of the tail BUT, I can't see the top of the tail to be certain that's what I'm seeing. The eye-ring looks real good. The hermit thrush(after just looking in a field guide) is one of the smallest thrushes you'll see there so, it's not something smaller than a hermit thrush. And the hermit thrush is all that "should" be there right now. So, Hermit has my vote but wait on some of the more experienced to chime in. ?

  19. No problem at all. I just like to point out Willets by subspecies when possible for the exact reason @egosnell2002 mentioned.

  20. That's a bit complicated. Cycle and winter are technically different things, but refer to the same thing in this case. Juvenile is a specific, fresh plumage that a gull keeps for it's first few months. I would recommend checking out the new book, Gulls Simplified.

  21. Red-winged Blackbird is correct. Others look to be Vesper Sparrows.

  25. Hi again all. I saw it again today, but couldn't get a picture. I heard it cry several times, it didn't sound like a red tail. it sounded closest to a Ferruginous Hawk. I live in Kansas in the KC area and I know I am a bit further away then where they should be seem. Of course this could a different huge bird with white underparts. I hope it comes back and perches so I can try for another picture.

  26. Where was this taken?

  27. Sorry, forgot to add location. It's central NY (finger lakes region). The bird was sparrow sized, definitely not a nighthawk. I think it was confused by the lights - single story water plant, with very bright led lights. It appeared to fly off towards some trees, never saw any more than the underneath of the bird. Spring migrants haven't really shown up yet (did have FOY song sparrow last weekend).
