    Welcome to Whatbird! That sound like a tree frog!

    Yes, this is a Swainson's Thrush. Note the same-color back/tail and buffy spectacles.

    This actually might be a Black-chinned which would be a good bird. I'm pretty confident on the ID, but not certain. Look at the tail spread, and see how the middle two feathers are green, not black. That's good for Black-chinned. Is this the same bird in all the photos, because the bill looks very thin for a Black-chinned in the first two, looking better for Calliope.

    I have that! Golden-cheeked Warbler!!!! It was taken Wednesday.

    The bill is thin and bright yellow.

    Actually, with that undertail pattern, I like Blue Jay here. It would explain the black neckband, too.

    The second in my "portraits of common birds" series. The resident pair of Chipping Sparrows are usually quite shy but just as I was leaving this one became more friendly, so last shot of the day again (actually Thursday - I'm way behind).

    Not White-rumped. Would show long wings, thin streaking in breast, and a orange-base at the bill this time of year. Agree with Least.

    Then you'd have to help me with the reports and spammers! I try not to abuse my powers. 😄

    This Scarlet Tanager doesn't have the deep , scarlet coloration of a typical scarlet tanager but appears to be more orange. I read that there is an orange variant of this species but most images show a very distinct orange coloration, this bird seems to fall somewhere in between. Would you ID this one as an orange variant?

    Swainsons Thrush last week

    Thanks Charlie, you're probably right but most scarlets I've photographed looked like this, maybe it's just a little lighter but it was orange enough to get me to do some research on it.

    This looks more like a Scarlet Tanager to me, but wait for more confirmation.

    Out of likes! I am guilty of saying things like "Leaning Willow" but, yeah, we probably shouldn't be saying things like that because it gives the impression that they can be reliably identified by sight alone. I have reported this thrush as a Gray-cheeked/Bicknell's.

    I agree with juvenile European Starling.

    I agree with @akandula. The second bird is tricky, but I lean Least because the eyering seems bold and the bill short. As far as the last two, they definitely lean to either side of the spectrum, but whether you call them further than Traill's is your choice.

    None of these are Yellow-bellied. They have non-contrasting throats. I think @Birding Boy's IDs are correct, but pass on the second bird.
  29. 1 point
    But the sun is shining, there's a great breeze, an RWBL is serenading me (okay, probably not ME), so it's a worth a few botched IDs.

    Welcome to Whatbird! This is actually a Red-Winged Blackbird.

    Welcome to Whatbird! This is actually a young American Robin. Edit: Beaten by Akandula and BirdNrd!!!

    Yeah, I've had the same problem with my phone. I don't ID unless I'm on the laptop.

    I can't comment on the bird's age, but it is indeed a Starling.

    Black cap, green back, pale bill, and large eye are good for Wilson's.
  36. 1 point
    I think certain times of year that can be tricky, although in general the males are darker. So, if a bird seems pretty light, I feel safe assuming it's female.
  37. 1 point
    I'm not sure that is an immature male. For one thing, males should have a lot more black on them in New York in May. I think it looks fine for an adult female.

    I think the first three are Gray-cheeked/Bicknell’s. I would differentiate from berry by the darker spotting extending further down the breast and black uppper and the tip of lower mandible. Not a swainsons because no strong eyering. And it doesn’t appear to be a hermit. The last bird is confusing, but I think it’s a Veery in weird lighting. Pale spots, large pale Bill. I have no expirence with Veery or Gray-cheeked so I’m just going of what I know from the guides.

    Agree with Calif Quail. The light forehead is another distinguishing mark for it, as opposed to Gambel's which has a dark forehead.

    This is actually a Brewer’s Blackbird.

    1. European Starling. Note the pointy bill and thin, iridescent neck feathers. 2. Thinking Least, but I'm no good at sandpipers. 3. Song Sparrow. Fox Sparrows have paler bills and denser streaking on the flanks.

    Hooded Orioles. The male has the Black on it's throat, and the other one is the female. Edit: Sniped! Why am I always a bit late?

    I agree with House Wren, for the reasons Connor Cochrane said.

    Looks like a House Wren. Look at bill shape and barred sides.

    I used up all my likes yesterday morning (in five minutes). Tried again today and managed to use one and then all out again - still no idea how the "like system" works. Note to @SirVive. Apparently I am not allowed to like your comment as you had not liked the original post - it seems it creates an imbalance in the universe 😨 (actually I was out of likes and today I just wanted to use this emoji).

    Looks good for Fosters. Orange bill, and tail goes past the wings.

    This looks good for a longer-billed Semipalmated. Note it very lacking in rufous overall, darker face, and bill size.
