    This is a Virginia Rail. Note the gray cheek, red, downcurved bill, cinnamon neck and breast, and black-and-white barring on the flanks. King Rails would be larger, have a pale (not red) bill, and have pale, reddish (not gray) cheeks. Nice bird! This secretive rail is usually hard to see in the open.

    That's often the case in central and southern FL. It's chock full of exotic, non-indigenous, even downright un-Mericun birds.

    They do, but they sing with a Southern accent! I'm from Alabama so I know what they sound like there too.

    Not sure, but could it be an Illegal Migrant Bird???

    Agreed. The FISP and HOWR are juveniles and the INBU is probably young as well.

    I like Pine Siskin for 3. Maybe 2 is an empid? Robin for 5 and Common/Pacific Loon for 6?

    I'm pretty sure 3 is a Marbled Murrelet. 5 looks more like a warbler to me than a crossbill.

    I found this bird in a wetlands area in northeast Indiana (Ft. Wayne). I ran a couple of pictures through the iBird identifier and got a King Rail and a Virginia Rail. Here's the best picture. Thanks!

    My first impression was an escaped captive adult male South African (Cape) Shelduck.

    Shouldn't this be under the letter H for "Holstein" Cattle Egret????

    Yes, a young Western. In the 1st photo (enlarged) I can see the spotted back which is a good ID mark for a young Western.

    I agree with young Red-tailed. As far as I know the only way to tell male from female is by size, and that can be difficult to gauge, especially when they're alone.

    Cool pictures! Yes, this is a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk. Note the broad, brown belly band, white-streaked brown head, pale chest, pale eyes, and brown barred tail. Adults are similar but usually have reddish streaks on the chest (but it is still very pale), darker markings on the head, dark eyes, and a red tail.

    I'd say you got it. Nice yellow color on the breast and throat that contrasts very little. Nice bird.

    Funny, I'm pretty sure I've never heard that. They must be like the Song Sparrow and don't sing in Georgia.

    Welcome to Whatbird! I embedded the video for you: Somebody will identify the song shortly. Where and when did you see this bird? I was thinking that this bird might be a Wood Thrush...

    Sorry, Charlie, but I'm afraid I can't help you with this. I buy the cheapies from Walmart then cuss myself when I can't get a good view of a bird that might have been a lifer! ☚ī¸

    I had this one posted on the old site before the crash. Thought I'd put it here since I'm sure a lot of people have trouble with these two, and it's very rare to see them together. This is a once-in-a-lifetime shot!!! Hope it helps distinguish them for y'all who have been having trouble when you see one or the other and can't decide which it is.

    Here's some not-so-confusing comparisons from today--Belted Kingfisher with a Green Heron, and a Little Blue Heron with a White Ibis.
