  7. Went to Riverbend WMA today for my birthday. It was pretty good. We got one rare bird (Blue headed Vireo), and a FOY (Swainsons Thrush). We also heard what sounded like a RCWO in some big pines, but only heard it once, and never saw, so we reported it as a woodpecker sp. We also met a birder which is great, because almost nobody every birds here! https://ebird.org/checklist/S136640727

  8. Guess what, my previous comment is already outdated… I was looking through the Lightroom catalogue for all the Meadow Pipit pictures I made and saw this unprocessed one sitting there from last year (together with this quite interesting shot from a common tern). I completely forgot I had these 😄 Ratings are greatly appreciated https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/568753711 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/568753951

  10. Bachman's Sparrow. Half-dozen or more singing birds, but none would show himself, with the exception of one brave fellow who briefly appeared before disappearing in the grass & forbs.

  11. Western Tanager, I had seen one and even photographed one in Utah back in 2021 but I have since lost the photos and I'm not willing to make a checklist from memory.

  15. Tennessees are the ones that are supposed to have darker feet. I agree it's not especially useful as a field mark, but is fairly reliable when reviewing from photos. Philadelphia Vireos will be much more yellow in the throat area. They also have yellowish undertail coverts and TEWAs' are white. Not sure what you meant when you mentioned "wing bars", but TEWAs' wingbars are generally not very noticeable. Experience will make this ID easier.

  22. Vireos have blue feets, this one does not so it's a TEWA. The bill is also far to sharp for most Vireos. I also find that Vireos look "cuter" than warblers.

  23. Chipping Sparrow from back in April of 2017 in Upstate New York. Thanks to @Aidan B for picking out the call from my audio. WOW, I also LOVE my iPhone for the recording and storage capabilities, and I'm glad I keep so much stuff. I also reported the Ruby-crowned Kinglet that Aidan B picked out, so I now know I got that lifer five years earlier than I thought. My lifer standards are very high, but so is the quality of my hearing, and I'm 100% confident the call made it to my ears on that spring morning in Upstate New York. There may also have been another Chipping Sparrow call in a different old audio clip I recently uploaded here from the same Upstate N.Y. area, but it wasn't as clear, so I didn't report the observation: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/568893631

  30. I thought it was a female orchard oriole because I saw lit with male bird. In-person the head had an orangish red color.

  35. Definitely a TEWA. They bill is way too thin, pointed, and long for a vireo, in addition to everything else that’s been said.

  41. After that trip to South Carolina, I thought I was done with Yellow-throated Vireos for the year, but one of them must have decided I hadn't seen enough and visited the local bird preserve today. Someone said it was either the fourth or fifth county record. The grackles were quite territorial, and they chased a hawk away from a large tree that I presume they were nesting in. The Cassin's Vireos and Red-necked Phalaropes were firsts for the year, bringing me up to 299 in 2023. I wonder what #300 will be. https://ebird.org/checklist/S136505725
