  1. That's 3 weeks in a row I've never seen the selected species. But then, there are a lot of species I've never seen before. So how about this to satisfy last week and this week together... A wood bird in the oven.

  14. Looks like a Spotted Towhee to me. White belly, orange sides, and a black back and tail. Not sure what's with the white head. Edit: Sniped by @PaulK

  22. If it was a Spotted Towhee it would be doing something like this and the part I circled is the wing?

  27. The others are Lesser Yellowlegs, given the good size comparison with the plovers. BTW, gulls tend not to have white wing stripes.

  29. The subject of the first photo is readily ID'ed to species, given the cocked tail, unrelieved yellow underparts, green wings lacking bars, and pink legs.

  36. Pay attention to behavior. Flycatchers sit relatively still on a perch, fly out to catch an insect, then return to a perch. Kinglets move around quickly among the branches searching for food.

  39. I'm old as dirt. I used to try to sell my bird photos and it gets so involved I started trading them for permission for authors to use them in their books. Also college kids asked permission to use them for whatever. I have a photo of a Xantuss's Hummer in the book "Hummingbirds of The Worlds". Fun stuff but selling a photo is tough.

  40. This is important. Tropicals have large bills (compared to western), as well as being much brighter overall, and having a slightly different structure (shown in the photo below).

  41. Ryan, I suggest an immature female hybrid. The age is certain and the strong orange and strong eyeline suggest BAOR. Female BUOR, particularly an SY, would be yellower. Immature males of either species would have black on, at least, the throat.

  42. This spring has not been ideal for pics in Oklahoma but this morning was a wonderful exception. Here is a pair of Cardinals that came to the yard this morning.
