    They have pale blue wing coverts and green speculums. The terrible photo I took recently shows this, what appears white is actually the pale blue.

    Southern Nevada today. I've never seen a starling that looks like this. Thought I'd ask you guys about the sparrows since I seem to misidentify them even while looking at reference photos. πŸ˜› Thanks!

    This is a Brewer’s Sparrow - note the dusky gray-brown overall with grayish underparts, a thin white eyering, and a streaked nape.

    I saw this bird today by San Francisco Bay. I'm guessing it's a Black Turnstone, but I wait to be corrected. Thanks!

    This little cutie on the right visited my bird feeder yesterday and today. Not sure what it is. It is a first time visitor. I live in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada. October 19, 2019.

    Merlin is right. The thrush jizz, overall gray-brown color, bold eye-ring, and complicated pattern of pale color in the wing (better seen in the second picture) will do it.

    Thanks for the encouraging words and the quote. Along those lines the following words come to mind "Hope springs eternal....."

    Don't be too sure. Deep down she was probably blown away. At least it won't hurt to imagine that she was.

    Thanks @akandula and @The Bird Nuts. I had initially identified this as a Red-eyed Vireo but it was quite late in the year for this location (nothing locally after mid-September so flagged by eBird - still not accepted) and so the doubts set in, not helped by the poor photo. Many thanks.

    Most flycatchers -- in the US/Canada, anyway -- perch much more vertically. The postures in the good field guides (particularly Sibley) are accurate. Pay attention to them.

    The problem is that you are probably confounding "juvenile" and "immature" which are different things. Juvenile Swamp Sparrow Immature Swamp Sparrow Adult Swamp Sparrow

    They're both juvenile Cooper's Hawks. Note the very broad white tail tip and, on the smaller bird, the contrastingly tawny hood. Male left, female right. Not a pair.
