  1. I saw this bird at the Garret Mountain Reservation in Passaic, NJ. I didn't get a good picture unfortunately... but I'm hoping I got enough for an ID.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. I saw these birds yesterday at a nature preserve in Essex County, NJ. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. I saw this bird today at the Hilltop Reservation in Essex County, NJ. It was with white throated sparrows, so.. thats my guess, but I don't see a white throat so any help would be greatly appreciated.
  4. I saw this bird today at the Hilltop reservation in Essex County, NJ. I would have thought this was a red breasted nuthatch, but that is showing as rare on E-bird, so let me confirm first.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  5. I saw these birds two weeks ago at Hornsby Bend, near Austin Texas. The last pic must be a yellowlegs, but greater? Any help would be greatly appreciated
  6. I saw these birds last week in Round Rock, TX, near Austin, while on vacation. Since these are not from my area, I'm not 100% sure and I don't want to misrepresent anything. I believe I have: Lesser goldfinch Field sparrow Barn swallow Yellow-rumped warbler Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  7. I saw this bird last week in Round Rock, Texas , near Austin. I had a very similar bird identified as Couch's. This one was taken a few days later, at a different location, but also seems to fit the description for Couch's.
  8. I saw these birds last week in Hornsby Bed, Texas, near Austin. I'm thinking all are least, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
  9. I was able to get pretty close to this one, and I can state with confidence, it was big... really big.
  10. I saw this bird while on vacation in Texas this week. This one was taken at Mills Pond Reservation near Austin, TX. This bird was big... it seemed to be as big as a large hawk... I have absolutely no idea what this could be.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. I saw these birds early this week at Hornsby Bend near Austin, Texas. I'm not familiar with phalarope, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Is the paler bird a juvenile?
  12. I saw these birds earlier this week while on vacation in Texas. All of these were from Hornsby Bend, near Austin Texas. I've never been good with sparrows and there are a bunch more in Texas I've never seen before... so any help would be greatly appreciated.
  13. I saw these birds while on vacation near Austin Texas. I was driving home when we were surrounded by swallows, and I found their nest under an overpass.. I think these are cliff swallows, but any help would be greatly appreciated
  14. I saw this bird early this week on the river trail at Hornsby Bend in Austin Texas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  15. I have this picture.. not sure if its the same bird though.. It was taken at the same location but 3 days later
  16. Could #1 be a western kingbird? That seems to be the only common kingbird in Round Rock per E-Bird...
  17. I live in NJ, but visited Texas this week and got to do some birdwatching.. I saw all these birds near Round Rock Texas. I think I know what I have, but if I could get confirmation, that would be greatly appreciated. Next I get to go through my Hornsby Bend pictures... those should be fun. I believe I have: Great crested flycatcher great tailed grackle red shouldered hawk yellow rumped warbler red bellied woodpecker
  18. I aw this bird at the beginning of the week while on a trip to Texas. This bird was photographed in terrible lighting at Mills Pond near Austin Texas. My best guess is black-chinned, but any help would be greatly appreciated.choose files...
  19. I saw these birds while travelling to Austin, TX earlier this week. I saw these two in Round Rock, TX. I'm pretty sure its a great egret (but since I'm not from TX, let me ask just to be sure...), but I'm not familiar with the second bird... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  20. I was visiting friends in Travis County, TX this week and I was able to get some birding in. I am not at all familiar with Texas birds, so I'm going to have some questions.. I saw these birds, near our hotel in Round Rock. The first looks like a chipping sparrow, which we have in NJ, but let me ask just to be safe.. Any help would be greatly appreciated
  21. I'm still struggling... I was looking at one of my field guides, and it specifically says Eastern Phoebe has no eye ring. In the past, I probably would have excluded Eastern Phoebe as an option, based on that, even though I can't find another reasonable option. I'm looking at other field guides, and some pictures do seem to show birds with what I'm seeing as an eye ring... It's possible, I'm not even sure I'm using the term eye ring correctly. Bottom line is, the eastern phoebe is the only bird it can be, but it's interesting the diversity that can be exhibited.
