    I agree with young Red-shouldered. Harriers have longer wings with a different underwing pattern and a smaller head with a unique face shape. Young Cooper's Hawks have different tail, back, and head patterns, bright yellow eyes, longer tails, and shorter wings. Red-tailed Hawks have shorter tails, dark patagial marks, and they're usually bulkier with larger bills.

    On a recent business trip to Miami, picked up a 2 misses from last time as well as 2 rarities. However no pics as I did not bring the camera. 622-625: Thick-billed Vireo, Western Spindalis, White-winged Parakeet, and Spot-breasted Oriole.

    This red-naped sapsucker was enjoying my yaupon holly berries. First time I've seen one in my area. Brownwood, TX is pretty far east for them.

    The same orange color visible on the bill is also on the neck and wing. That’s what makes it look like a lighting issue to me. Besides, head/bill shape look better for Tundra or Trumpeter.

    Maybe it's an odd overgrown bill, but I know it was the bill because the bird moved to different places and always seemed to be using the bill to dig under the rocks searching for something. It was a very long curved bill. It looked very much like the woodpeckers we have here but much smaller - did not look like a juvenile; about the size of a robin. most mysterious. We've lived here since the early 70's and have never seen any bird like it before. Thanks for all your fast quick help. Any other thoughts are welcome.

    That is a Fox Sparrow. Hermit Thrushes have much thinner bills and the spots on their breast fade out toward the belly and flanks.

    My guess is this little guy is a sparrow, if so what kind of sparrow? Thanks, photographed today near creek early afternoon, Northern California.

    This is a young Red-shouldered Hawk. The tail pattern fits, as well as the wing crescents in the flight shot as well.

    I'm thinking Red-shouldered, with the longish tail with dark bars wider than light, and the translucent crescent on the primaries when they're spread. Definitely leucistic on a couple wing feathers.

    Based on the barring on the flanks in the first pic, and the length of the bill, I like Wilson's Snipe here.

    With the extensive white on the undertail, I would say Glue-gray Gnatcatcher.

    It doesn't look white to me in the photo, but I wasn't there. I've never seen a leucistic (that's how you spell it) Sandhill either, but they do exist. http://majikphil.blogspot.com/2018/08/floridas-rarest-birdall-white-sandhill.html

    Can anyone ID this bird we saw in Delta, BC this morning? We tried Merlin on the image, but it thought it was a pigeon.

    Agree with Canadas
  32. 1 point
    Neither of them look significantly smaller than the others and the second is at an angle, so its beak is foreshortened. Both look like Canadas to me.

    1 and 4 are Yellow-rumped Warblers. 2 is a Gnatcatcher, not sure which species. 3 is an American Goldfinch.

    Sometimes they are in the trees, Charlie. Sometimes they are in the wind. I kind of object to the way they eat up the juniper berries and leave purple deposits on my flagstone pool deck!

    At this point in time I have overlap between the winter resident rufous hummingbirds and the arriving black-chinned hummingbirds.
