    2 and 3 are Chipping Sparrows.

    Yes. The orange on the tail is something kingbirds don’t have

    The first bird is indeed a Baltimore Oriole, but the second is a female Orchard with that yellow-green appearance.

    1. Young Broad-winged Hawk (blotchy streaks on upper breast, pale supercilium, dark malar, wider tail bands) 2. With the big head and bill, I think it looks okay for an Olive-sided

    That is because the feathers are wet and ruffled.

    Since the bird is really wet the feathers separate and make dark shadows. I'm not good with the flycatchers but I can confirm 2. and 3.!

    That's very exciting! I will have to be careful in the yard and not disturb any of the longer grass just in case. πŸ™‚ I'll keep my eyes peeled as the weeks pass, maybe I will catch a picture of babies. Speaking of pictures -- I went through my photos, and the unknown is definitely not a Lincoln Sparrow. I found my best photo started a new thread for it.

    I don't know molt cycles for Ruby-throateds, but wouldn't last year's males have a full gorget by now? Isn't it too early for this to be one of this year's brood?

    You're in breeding range I think. I live in Idaho and they nest here! I normally don't hear of sparrows singing that early, but out of all the sparrows I think Lincoln's are one of the most vociferous. It could definitely be nesting nearby! I

    I think you might be correct!! Not only by the sound of the bird, but I also have a (pretty terrible) photo of a bird I couldn't identify with the same black streaks on the upper breast. It was wet (raining) and I couldn't tell if there was very pale yellow feathers on it's stomach, and I couldn't see it's face. It matches the visual of a Lincoln's Sparrow very closely. I also saw a black-flecked bird outside one of the windows perched on a cherry tree, but it was too small too be a thrush and gone by the time I had a camera in hand. Is it unusual for a bird to persist in the area for over a week? Is it possible it may be nesting in my yard (I have lots of long grass and generally everything it is listed to like is in my yard), or do they nest further north? And finally, why would it sing so much when it is still dark out (2 a.m.)?

    Why not Marsh Wren? I think a Bewick's Wren would have a more prominent eyebrow and a longer tail.

    Yes, nonbreeding and immature plumages have darker bills that lack a band.

    The thick bill makes this a Pied-billed Grebe.

    Yes, all are Brewer's Sparrows. The drab gray appearance and streaked nape are good ID features.

    The first is a Hairy Woodpecker with that long bill and unmarked outer tail feathers. And the second is indeed a Great Crested Flycatcher.

    Chipping Sparrow is correct. Note the rusty cap and dark eyeline/lores.

    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.

    For the young bird in the second picture, note the very long slender bill which (among other things) makes this a California. Herring would appear larger and bulkier overall with a much heftier bill.

    All of your original four look good for western. Being in Oregon, there is a good chance that they have at least a little Glaucous-winged heritage in them, but these look mostly western. The best ways to tell a breeding western and herring gull apart is their back shade, but also bill shape. Western have a much more bulbous bill than Herring. The young gull in your second round of photos actually looks better for California.
