    The male painted bunting came by today and the weather conditions were perfect to get a pic of him.

    I had about decided that I was not ever going find a Cuckoo, when I had a camera. I hear them consonantly, but I never can find them. Photographic lifer Yellow-billed Cuckoo!

    That looks like an immature male Summer Tanager to me.

    Welcome! Carolina Wrens are known for nesting in manmade objects, and potted plants seem to be favorite spots. These little ones will bounce around your yard like brown tennis balls for a few day until they become better fliers. Don't disturb the nest; she may well reuse it in the next couple of weeks.

    This is a normal Belted Kingfisher. Judging size in the field is very difficult. However, you can infer that the pine cones around the bird are probably about 2" in length, making this bird a little more than 10". That's the approximate size for a kingfisher.

    Yes, this is a young male Red-winged Blackbird. I'm thinking either AHY or SY.

    I went back to NC to do two Hatteras pelagic trips. First trip went out, but the second was cancelled due to rough seas. Before the trip I got a lifer Chuck-will's-widow, but no photos. Five lifers on the boat. Only had a few Audubon's Shearwaters, and they stayed really far away so I only got a terrible photo: Audubon's Shearwater by mattgrube, on Flickr Band-rumped Storm-petrel by mattgrube, on Flickr Black-capped Petrel by mattgrube, on Flickr Cory's Shearwater by mattgrube, on Flickr We actually had at least two Trindade Petrels as well!

    Welcome to Whatbird! As another field mark, the purple iridescence on the head combined with bronze iridescence elsewhere is typical for mature male Common Grackles in most areas. I think the purple interspersed with the bronze makes this a "Ridgway's Grackle", intermediate between the widespread purple-headed "bronze" form and the all-purple form. Maybe. Who took my old Peterson's?

    Grackles have larger bills and longer tails than Brewer's Blackbirds. The one with the dark eyes and more brown color is a juvenile Common Grackle.
