  1. Only my second Blue-headed Vireo. The first was a couple of years ago, later in early spring, less than a tenth of a mile away. Not bad for having to aim up and out of the passenger side from the driver's side of the 'car blind'. Batesburg-Leesville Industrial Park, Lexington County, central SC.

  6. Interestingly enough, those two color morphs have a cool dynamic. A male bird can be either morph, as can the female. But, a male tan-striped bird will prefer a female white-striped, and vice versa for breeding.

  10. @chipperatl, unfortunately this was the only shot I have. I lost the bird in the gigantic swells right after I noticed it might not be a common goldeneye. Thanks to everyone for weighing in! I guess I can't definitively say this is a Barrow's so I entered it into eBird as a common/Barrow's.

  14. Welcome to Whatbird! That's a Red-shouldered, with rows of pale icicles on the wings (the lower part of the visible wing, in this position).

  15. That's what I would say, though definitely wait for someone with more experience with Selasphorus hummingbirds than me.

  16. When you go birding are you starting on a well cut path, proceeding to open green patches, ending up in the trees, then the sand, then in the water, and finally feeling like you are hiding in a hole, all to see some birdies?

  20. We get two kinds of White-throated Sparrows here in Georgia, the normal ones, and the tan striped variety, so they can look a bit different. Not a different species, just a color morph. With White-throated Sparrows, males and females look the same.

  21. What was the shape of these birds? If the light wasn’t great, many colors can appear to be black. Were they shaped like waterfowl, or something else?

  23. This Painted Bunting has been coming around for the last few days but not sticking around for photos until today. He stuck around today and shared a little breakfast with a few Chipping Sparrows.

  27. Terrible pic from today: Eastern Towhee, Chipping Sparrow and Dark-eyed Junco. I've only recently started following this thread and haven't gone back to all 30+ pages. Assuming this photo wins this challenge, do I then pick the next challenge?

  31. Any shots with Common in the frame may help with size comparison. That head is really straight up, suggesting Barrow’s. Young Barrow’s could have that little amount of yellow. I think size is going to be determining factor.
