  3. This is a Spotted Sandpiper. A tattler in Vermont would be quite the find!

  4. This is an interesting bird to age. The lack of a dark breast band and bicolored bill should indicate a juvenile. But a juvenile at this date should still have scaly fringing on the wing coverts. Looks all molted here, which is unusual at this date.

  7. Phalarope. I have no experience but I think Red-necked. And I would say Greater on the Yellowlegs

  8. I'm not good with Yellowlegs, so I couldn't say for sure. But yes, the smaller rusty one. You can see the light bill base and the white stripes down the back.

  12. With the large bill and buff colored breast, this is a female Black-headed Grosbeak.

  13. Huh... I considered that possibility but when I was looking at photos of molting males and adult females, males had this sort of patchy appearance with bright red feathers just growing in willy nilly whereas females can have these neat lined up rows of spots on the chin. Also, I have bee balm and this doesn't look like it...

  14. Yes, this is a female/immature Western Tanager. Note the medium size, thick, blunted bill, yellow overall, dark wings, and two wingbars. Adult males would have an orange head, a black back, yellow shoulder patch, and one white wingbar. Other tanager species would not have two wingbars on a dark back. Orioles and warblers would have thinner, pointier bills, and warblers are much smaller.

  17. Yes, this is a nonbreeding adult/juvenile Semipalmated Plover. Note the small size, round head, and stubby bill. Breeding adults have an orange-based black bill, black crown, eye patch, and breast band, and yellow legs. Nonbreeding adults and juveniles have a brown (not black) crown, breast band, and eye patch.

  19. This is a young male. The white throat feathers he had as a fledgling are being replaced by the red ones of an adult male. Great photos, by the way. Is that Mondara / Bee Balm he's feeding on?

  20. This really is an interesting bird, but Gray Flycatcher is all I can come up with.

  21. Rufouses always have quite a bit of orange, especially around the eye. I don't see any orange on this bird.

  25. "Whatever Lola wants... Lola gets!" -- 'Damn Yankees' "I thought that you'd want what I want... Sorry my dear" -- 'A Little Night Music' "Is a danger to be trusting one another, One will seldom want to do what other wishes; But unless someday somebody trust somebody, There'll be nothing left on earth excepting fishes!" -- 'The King and I" At her first appearance in the show ring Lola slumped to the floor when the judge put her hands on Lola. Lola won no points against an inferior bitch because she did not exhibit the bold, confident, and aloof stature demanded by the judging standard for the Bouvier des Flandres breed. From her second appearance in the show ring, Lola has never failed to bring home a point or more. The problem is that she has few competitors in Texas. She would collect a greater number of points from a single show if she bested a larger field. The Virginia, DC, and Maryland bouvier breeder's club we belonged to some twenty years ago could enter quite a number of dogs and bitches. Here in Texas the breed is seldom found. It seems like Texas could use a breed that, translated from the French, is named "ox driver of Flanders".
