  5. Common Goldeneyes are known for their distinctive whistling sound; I think that at least some of the others on my list have a more whirring sound.

  6. These are some ducks that I know that have a whistling/rattling sound during takeoff or in the air: Northern Shoveler Green-winged Teal Common and Barrow’s Goldeneye Common Merganser

  7. AAB's page for Hooded Merganser suggests Bufflehead, and Bufflehead suggests the larger goldeneyes, although more so in breeding plumage. The range is good for all. I can't address the wing sounds. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Hooded_Merganser/id

  8. And I assume that you meant "Rough-legged," as Northern Rough-winged Swallow is long gone for winter.

  11. Not female-type, it is a female House Sparrow. Males look like females only in the nest and shortly after fledging. They quickly attain male plumage. House Sparrow is not a member of the New World family of sparrows (Passerellidae), but of the Old World family that was originally called sparrows (Passeridae).

  12. Yes, Harris's is ruled out by the long wings (extending to tail tip), as that species, being essentially non-migratory, has relatively short wings. Additionally, the tail's color pattern is reversed fro that of Harris's. However, this could be a dark morph of either Red-tailed or Ferruginous hawks, and that's as precise as I can be, given the photos.

  14. What points away from a Herring? I think I'd need more photos to really be sure. Considering it's winter on Georgian Bay Herring is more likely, but not definitive at all.

  15. Mourning Dove versus White-crowned Sparrow. By far the most obvious difference is in the vocalizations, after that it gets trickier.
