  2. No. Bill is too large and slope of forehead too graduated. It’s a Canada (which are highly variable).

  4. Willow — nicely slanted forehead and ALFLs are generally greener above; ALFLs also have, on average, longer pp projection, but without knowing the bird’s sex, that distinction is not useful here

  5. I think those are all Canada’s, with those long necked and sloped foreheads and bills. You’ll know a Cackling when you see it.

  7. Shouldn't we have raised the landing gear by now? I'm pretty sure the Blue Angels don't fly this high with their landing gear down.

  9. I stand corrected. I went back with a pair of binoculars and it looks like we have a pair of blue grosbeaks and I would say they are nesting in that grove. They spent a lot of time going back and forth from the trees to the volunteer corn in the soybean field next to the trees. I had seen a blue grosbeak in the Badlands of South Dakota 20 some years ago but never have seen one here in Iowa. It would be fun to have them start taking up residence here. Last year we had a summer bunting. Neither are common to this area. Thanks!

  21. Because it hatched last year. 😎 It’s got some black in the crown and has replaced many of its wing coverts, thus losing a lot is the spotting. It’s probably a little on the retarded side of molt progression for the sp, as most one-year-olds are somewhat more adult-like by this point in the plumage cycle.

  25. It is a Song Sparrow with the long tail, gray bill, coarse dark streaking, and rich brown color.

  26. Darn good question. I don't see any hint of a white stripe on its side. I don't see a stripe on the adult either, although it could be hidden. /Edit: Gray color looks better for Common, but since the pic is so dark, I'm not sure.

  29. Report as Traill’s unless the site is known to host WIFL and not ALFL. The problem with in-hand ID is that one cannot use shape features all that well.
