  5. Not sure young male can be ruled out, but, yes, it is a House Sparrow.

  6. All the loons look good for Commons, I agree with RNGR for #2, and I think #3 is also a Red-necked Grebe.

  10. I’m fine. I haven’t heard about the fires… but you’re right about the wind! Today it’s perfectly calm (I doubt I’d be able to fly my kite) but yesterday it was nuts! 70 mph winds! Nothing was damaged at our place (some stuff blew away but that was it) but our friends’ greenhouse had a chunk broken off of it. The wind was so bad that when I went out the door yesterday I nearly fell over! 🤣 I didn’t even have to pedal my bike when the wind was to my back, I just cruised along and let the wind push me. So yeah, pretty crazy!

  11. Hey @Seanbirds, you alright? I hear Kansas is having some wild winds and fires and stuff. Pretty smokey here in Michigan from the winds blowing it our way but that’s about it.

  13. Both Blue-winged. Separated from Green-winged by larger bill, white in front of face, no white triangle near the tail, and GISS.

  14. Quite yellowish around the face - do you think that’s from pollen, or is that normal for immature Swamp Sparrows? I agree it’s definitely a Swamp

  15. In that case, I'd say it would qualify. Two different species -- the cardinal point can be in the subspecies name.

  16. Please try not to revisit posts over a year old. Even if the post is a few days old or a week or so, if it’s already been identified, leave it. Mostly look at ones from that day or a few days ago. Thank you for your understanding!

  17. @SteveEarsom, FYI, this ID discussion is over a year old. The finch post you commented on earlier today was over 18 months old. Please avoid reviving posts over a few weeks old, especially if the identification questions have already been resolved. Thanks!

  18. They did. That’s why the comments say some flyovers. I got lifer black vulture this morning!

  20. Sorry not familiar with Texas. My suggestion is plug it into ebird and see what happens. If you get an Established Feral option and you know for sure it was not a captive or pet duck, count it.

  24. Nail is not 100% reliable, particularly for females. I'd go lesser

  25. I don't think that's Chipping since the eyeline isn't going all the way through to the lores so I say Clay-colored.

  26. The best Rough-legged hawk photo I got!!! https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/396004591 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/396004661

  27. OK, I'm going to get this challenge kick-started. A photo containing at least 2 species whose common names contain at least 2 different cardinal points of the compass: Northern, Southern, Eastern, Western. The two cannot be the same cardinal point. So if one is Eastern, then the other one needs to be either Northern, Southern or Western.
