    Both are Least Sandpipers. The yellow legs are good ID features.

    I saw this little guy in St Charles, IL today in my window well. I also witnessed, but didn't get it on video unfortunately, a regular Robin feed it some live worms. Is this an Albino Robin maybe? At first I thought it was a white dove, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Both of these are Northern Waterthrushes. Note the thin superciliums, streaked throats, and densely streaked undersides.

    Yes, both are Palm Warblers. Note the pale supercilium and yellow undertail coverts.

    @roadcykler, just so you know, the Common Snipe got split into two species. Now, the one in Eurasia is called the Common Snipe while the one in North America is called the Wilson's Snipe.

    That's actually a Lesser Goldfinch with that olive back.

    I'll back up Connor on both of these. Indigos have narrower bills. The last photo clearly shows the white-around-black face markings of a Chat. Both photos show the defined break on the breast between yellow and white.

    I would say something flagged on ebird as rare, that is not flagged because its needed for confirmation, and/or less than 10 records a year in a given area. While that might seem high for some areas, places where there are a lot of birders, and good geography, 10 is a low number. If you in response of the many different numbers and species I had, there was a fallout , on Point Reyes, which is a piece of land that sticks way out into the ocean, that has 4 groups of trees on the 20 mile peninsula. Perfect vagrant trap.

    Looks good for a American Robin. Very cool how it’s fully albino, with legs, eye, etc missing pigment. People post lots of photos of leucistic birds here but full albino seems rare...

    This looks good for Northern Rough-winged Swallow. Nothing seems off to me

    Based on the structure and short tail, this is a juvenile European Starling.

    My first instinct was downy due to body compactness and bill

    I like Downy with that petite bill.

    There used to be the Western Scrub Jay, and it was split into the Calif Scrub Jay and Woodhouse's Scrub Jay. By range, your bird is a Woodhouse's.

    Well it took you long enough. :P Many thanks for your help man. Never even heard of this bird before.

    To me, it looks good for a female indigo bunting.

    It sounds pretty close to a White-eyed Vireo.

    Yep, looks good for a young grackle. You can even see a little bit of pink on the gape in the second picture.

    Is this bird an Eastern Kingbird?

    @CoastieBirder, good job! When I first looked at that photo, it almost seemed like the grackle was shooting out of the crow

    Yes, Eastern Kingbird. Black on top, white below, white tail tip.

    Is this just a Little Woodpecker. Looks off. Any other opinions?

    Good question. Here are some tips: If you see a Sanderling at close range, you can see that it lacks the hind toe of a Semi. In nonbreeding plumage, Sanderlings have clean white breasts. In breeding plumage, Sanderlings have spotted breasts. Semis usually have streaked breasts. Semis have a slimmer midsection than the chunky Sanderlings. Sanderlings are sometimes a different primary color, depending on the time of year. In full breeding plumage, they’re redder than Semis, and in full nonbreeding plumage, they’re grayer than Semis.
