    I like Greater. Extensive barring and upturned, long bill.

    This is a Wilson's Phalarope! Notice the pot bellied appearance which immediately identifies it as a Phalarope, and the light gray eye line connecting in a continuous path to the head and down the back of the neck eliminates all other Phalaropes.

    The dark underwings are distinctive.

    Yes, I think the images are good enough to call it a Solitary Sandpiper.

    I got a better look at it today and according to my bird book it is a female Northern Cardinal. Thanks everyone! I am new at this and it's great to have help.

    Maybe a young Chipping with those dark lores.

    I know it is easy to want to make your photos look better, but most of the time it more helpful not to do that.😉

    Looks like a California Scrub-Jay.

    I'd go with juvenile Song.

    In general, if possible, please post unedited versions of the photos. Increased clarity and contrast can really make it difficult to judge certain subtle traits.

    That's a juvenile Brewer's Blackbird. Cowbirds have stouter bills.

    Ovenbird seems correct, maybe a juvenile due to the dull streaking. As to why it’s up in the tree, I’m not sure.

    Looks good for one. Lucky. I’m in the Nevada desert right note and have dipped on them twice so far.

    It’s called a band code. All North American birds have them

    A House Wren is correct. Note the dark brown appearance and medium-length tail.

    That appears to be a Lesser Goldfinch. Note the conical bill and black crown.

    It's really hard to tell from the images, but I might consider Eastern Phoebe or Willow Flycatcher for the first bird- the head shape and structure does not look like a myiarchus flycatcher. The second photo definitely could be Willows, and if the call matches the 'fitz' calls of Willow, then I'd definitely call it that.

    https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Red-winged_Blackbird Female Red-wingeds are one of the top five birds people ask about here!

    Ah, sorry about that. How about an oriole? Do you get Bullock's there?

    Yep, juvenile European Starlings. We visited Nova Scotia last year and I loved the morning fog!

    Definitely a House Sparrow, but it's quite a weird molt/plumage- the back patterning is completely missing, and it has dark in places that neither male/female House Sparrow usually has. Perhaps some pigment disorder?

    Black Rosy-Finch is absolutely correct! And an awesome bird, I don't know about your location specifically, but in general Rosy-Finches are notoriously hard to find in the summer months.

    It's a juvenile, too. Notice the fleshy gape and the very short tail.

    Did some research, I think it’s a peacock flight feather. I think they’re sometimes used for quill pens. Maybe my dad was lying to me about finding it, or someone dropped it on the ground and he found it and misidentified it.

    Has the proflie of a melospiza sparrow, by the Buffy throat, Lincoln’s I believe.

    I’m not sure how big they are, but could it be a female northern cardinal?

    Looks good for Yellow-rumped. Virginia's have a more distinct eyering.

    Welcome to Whatbird! That’s a female/young male House Sparrow. Note the buffy appearance, pale eyebrow, and stout bill.

    Thanks for the replies! It has been baby bird central there with fledglings of all types. House wren could be a possibility, but I haven’t heard them make those “Eeh” sounds before. But who knows Though, it’s the sound that is quieter than the high pitched notes, as the high ones aren’t coming from the same bird that made the chattering call as it overlaps the chattering. It’s like a squeaky “eeeh” that’s repeated a few times before the chattering calls. The audio is horrible so it quite faint. It happens at 6, 8, 15 seconds.

    Agree with House Finch. I think it could also be a juvenile male at this time of year.
