    I believe these would be an American Goldfinch, Abert's Towhee and a Yellow Warbler.

    That is actually a Yellow-throated Vireo.

    I think based on the tail pattern that it is a Baltimore but wait for more input as I do not see Baltimore Orioles in my area. 🙂 Here is one of the OP's photos. Here is the other one.

    I was out on my daily nature walk this morning and out of the corner of my eye noticed a R-w Blackbird swooping at what I thought was a Swallow and knocking it out of the sky. I kept watching the location expecting the swallow to emerge and fly away. Instead a tiny little head appeared in the water and started moving away from the Blackbird. It swam about 75yards and I was trying to figure out what it was - way too small for a Mink. It eventually emerged and yes, they can swim. My first post in this forum so hope it is appropriate. I found it quite entertaining.

    Yes my profile pic is a Prothonotary Warbler. Picture was taken at Lefleur's Bluff State Park in Jackson, MS. The local Audubon Society maintains several nesting boxes in the Jackson area. These "Swamp Canaries" are very common all over Mississippi in the Summertime. Look for them in Mosquito infested Cypress Swamps. It is possible to see them in you backyard during migration.

    Well, they chose not to nest in our boxes this time, but they brought the babies for a visit.

    I live in the PNW...on the WA/OR border and I have not seen any young birds here yet this year, Sparrow or otherwise. The Brewer's Blackbirds, Scrub Jay, and Eurasian Collared-Doves have been nest building like crazy the last couple of weeks. The Bullock Orioles and Western Kingbirds arrived last week but no sign of the Western Bluebirds yet but I expect them anytime now. Seattle is about a 4-hour drive North of me and in a much different climate than where I am so perhaps the breeding time frame is earlier than in my area. 🙂

    Do not go off me, but that bill looks chunky enough for a Caspian, to me.

    Saw these birds while out walking today. The white tops, fairly large size, seems to be in either eagle or hawk family. Maybe osprey? Sorry I couldn't do better on pics - had a dog on my arm! Zoomed as much as I could with my phone camera. I posted the pics publicly on Facebook, because I don't see an upload option: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10219919184998502&set=pcb.10219919185478514&type=3&theater There are 3 pictures to look through. I am located in Port St. Lucie, FL, for reference.

    Well, heck. The black throat on greenish-yellow says young male Orchard Oriole to me. Let's all blame @lonesome55dove

    That is what it appears to be. It still has a fleshy yellow gape and the plumage is right for a juvenile.
  24. 1 point
    To those calling it a juvenile: juvenile as in already hatched and fledged this spring??

    Agree with Swainson's.

    Swainson's is correct

    It's an interesting little spot on the way home from work and gives me an occasional opportunity to decompress. It's an industrial park, about a half-mile on each side, partially cleared but with only a couple of businesses so far. It's unpromising at first glance and I've never had more than ten or twelve species at a time, but it often yields some interesting migrants and a Red-Shouldered or two. Back in February it was loaded with Palm Warblers. Oddly, the small retention pond usually has more action than the larger lake. In a half-dozen trips, I've seen only a kingfisher on the bigger water; no wading birds, no dabblers, nada. I'd love to get deeper into the remaining woods but it's private property and the larger lake is marked off limits by the county, so I'm limited to what I can see from the public road.

    The screenshot below is from AAB's SOSP page. I clearly remember noticing this solid brown patch on the coverts. Of course, I completely forgot / ignored it when I started researching the bird. Oh, and that's a lifer!

    Looks good for Clay-colored Sparrow.
