  2. Best ever shots of a Purple Finch yesterday. It was displaying to a female nearby. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/437991171 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/437991121

  3. It’s a Red-tailed Hawk. A Ferruginous Hawk would have cleaner white undersides of the flight feathers regardless of color morph

  8. Red-winged Blackbirds have yellow edging on the red patchs of their wings, @Gman68, sometimes showing only the yellow while the red is hidden under other feathers. They can show or hide the wing patch as desired so the colors aren't always as bold or noticable as they can be.

  17. I got some of my favorite shots ever today thanks to a couple friendly Prothonotary Warblers. Please rate shots. https://ebird.org/checklist/S107611013

  18. Correct. The male is an intergrade (Red-shafted Flicker x Yellow-shafted Flickee), and the female is likely a Red-shafted individual, but we can’t be 100% sure unless you have wing and/or tail shots. Colorado is chock full of intergrades, and some estimates calculate that up to 25%-50% of all birds in the eastern plains are intergrades.

  22. While photographing the spring warblers in the backyard this afternoon, April 20, this bird landed on a branch in the wooded area just beyond the back fence. He stayed several minutes before flying off. I have several water sources and feeders in the yard. I am in Kendall County, Texas, northwest of San Antonio. Until a couple days ago we had been without much rain for months and I have been seeing a number of migrating warblers return over multiple days to drink and bathe. I think it might be a Northern or Louisiana Waterthrush but I'm not even sure they get to this area. The light in the woods wasn't bright so I did remove some noise from the photos.

  23. I think that’s a Nashville since there’s so much yellow but wait for more opinions as this is coming from someone without experience with either.

  30. That's what I did! It just throws me off when eBird gives me that warning so I wanted to make sure I was right ?

  31. Taken today in Colorado Springs. I believe the male is an integrated red shafted Flicker due to the red on the nape and the female is a red shafted Flicker?

  33. Virginia’s only have yellow on a small part of the breast, not the whole breast. It’s Nashville.

  34. Ummm, at 400mm you could have reduced the zoom to 300mm, or less, couldn't you? ? I know, I know, I tend to forget that my zoom lens has a short end too. ?

  38. I believe this is a Common Spotted Whiptail. At Sa. Ygnacio Texas, I'm sure @Seanbirds can confirm. Looked different than many of the other whiptails I've seen.
