  1. Tail feathers seems kind of short ?
  2. What for more expert opinions but I think this may be an Immature Red-shouldered Hawk. I think I can see some black and white barring on the primaries on the right hand side of the photo.
  3. You can also see the pale translucent crescent near the wing tips
  4. Bumping this up so hopefully someone else can review and comment. Meadowlarks are difficult at the best of times. I do not see any yellow showing in the malar area so my guess (and it truly is a guess) would be Eastern Meadowlark but please wait for more experienced birders to comment. I always love spotting a Meadlowlark 🙂
  5. Your first photos are of an immature Red-shouldered hawk- note the brown streaking on the chest. The photos above appear to be of adult Red-shouldered hawk - note the reddish-orange barring on chest and bold black and white checkered pattern on the edge of wings
  6. @IKLlandpsst now's your chance 😉
  7. It kinda looks like a yellow mustache 🙂
  8. I see the same as lonestranger. Do you have photo of a flock of them you could add? That may convince them your count was correct 🙂
  9. @Liam I was expecting this weeks quiz bird to be a Northern Shrike 😉
  10. Wait for the experts but I believe for Red Tailed Hawks the subspecies could be light morphed Harlan's or Krider's
  11. I interpreted the sequence of events by the photos as 1, full swing and a miss 2 full hit 3 and 4 loaded down take off?
  12. To all my fellow birders who dared to guess .....whisper "Hybrid".....Congrats! Alas I was not brave enough :(.
  13. I googled Scrub Jay with orange beak and found some photos of Scrub Jays with orange pollen on their beak/head. Apparently there is a type of bromeliad that can produce an orange flower with orange pollen?
  14. I put my guess in so I won't hold things up 🙂
  15. I've read that birds are very sensitive to bacteria on cats claws and teeth. So even a small scratch by claw or tooth could be too much even with rehab intervention. I've found my chickens hidden in the bushes frozen in a trance like state before after being attacked by something. I believe they literally could die of fright.
  16. I was thinking this looks like an juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk? Aren't those tail bands too wide for Red Tail?
  17. From my experience - dense, shrubby, swampy areas Red-shouldered Hawks are the main raptor I see in these conditions. They are not picky eaters and seem to be able to move around well in dense/shrubby woods.
  18. Is this the "hint" ? Asking for a friend.... 😉
  19. I guessed Willet for the large brownish shorebird....wayyy offff.....lol
