  1. Hooded Warbler that almost landed on me yesterday https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/438296931

  2. Not sure how rare these are including their Caribbean range, but their range in the US is a tiny sliver of south Florida. I did know what they were when I spotted them. My best bird by far from spring break on Marco Island. White-crowned Pigeon.

  14. Buffted Titmouse. This might be better in the "Caption Contest" thread in the "Photo Sharing and Discussion" forum--or maybe that's not a good place either.

  17. Finally found an F Foto. Fox Sparrow I have feeling that I am going to have to get creative this week. Once I find a Field Sparrow foto, I think I'll have to resort to Finches and Flycatchers.

  19. Coopers for the first one to my eye. Head projects out a good bit, and the tail pattern is off for goshawk. Second one could be SSHA, but I'm leaning Coop

  20. Golden can be ruled out on the white armpits alone. Young Goldens would only have white on the base of the tail at at the wrists.

  21. I think its a HERG, as LBBG wouldn't have those windows. But wait for more opinions.

  23. Broad-winged is correct. Tail pattern and dark trailing edge to wing are good clues.

  24. I saw the male Anhinga reported in my county yesterday. It was on the other side of a small pond, in a tree. It spread its wings for many minutes, and as I was leaving it was making soft grunting noises. This is the closest I've been to an Anhinga in many years.

  25. Hi I think this might be interesting for you. I am a 3D operator and I have just finished building an animation on the topic "How birds sing". It's about the syrinx, of course, but also about the respiratory system of birds. I would be happy to hear what you think about the animation, I hope you enjoy watching it! ? Here is the link to the animation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_c_ytNDAXQ and here are also some screenshots best regards, Oliver

  27. Midday is the “birding doldrums” Birds are disappearing to do whatever they do after the morning buzz of activity, before slowly picking back up for the evening. It’s why I always bird at sunrise.

  30. I agree with the first, but I'm actually leaning Sharpie on the second, though I'm not sure why.

  31. Not necessarily. In Colorado on the front range in the eastern plains where intergrade flickers are well documented, there are sone records of birds that appear to be pure female Red-shafted Flickers, but have very intermediate colored remiges and rectrices. If I were to see that individual out where I live in California, I would have no problem calling it pure. But given the location, I was just being conservative. Seeing the updated photo, I think the bird looks fine for a Red-shafted.

  33. 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.

  34. Red-tailed Hawk. Those wing commas and belly band are good clues

  39. Finally managed to get photos of a Calliope Hummingbird from my patch. They're quite rare in the county, and my patch is definitely the best place to look for them. They're very hard to photograph though. I only saw 24 there before I managed to get a photo of one!
