  1. Yep! Olive green back with a prominent eyering and short primary projection.
  2. Welcome, Justin! Good insight; you've done your research and you're exactly right! I agree with Botteri's and Cassin's respectively for the reasons you stated.
  3. The pale gray spotting on the chest of the thrush make it a Veery. Second bird is a warbler with the thin bill, I think Bay-breasted. Last bird is a female House Finch.
  4. I agree with creeker. The bill looks too small for Brown-crested on either bird.
  5. Maybe molting, but it could be a brood patch. Females lose some feathers on the belly when incubating eggs to keep the eggs close to the body for warmth.
  6. Pale belly and grayish chest, short straight bill, black legs. I agree with Semi Sand. Charlie, not sure where you're seeing Spotted Sand, but there is a Semi Sand and Semi Plovs in the last two photos.
  7. I agree with egosnell. Congrats on the lifer!
  8. I agree with Eastern Wood-Pewee.
  9. Yes. The brown forehead patch is telltale of intergrades in the contact zone. The default in Palo Pinto County should be intergrades. It's a mess of genetics where (to my understanding) all the titmice in the contact zone are intergrades that are selected against on either end of the region (Tufted in the east and north, BC in the west). Pure BC or Tufted can be found in the periphery of the contact zone and occasionally well within as well, but the default is intergrade in Palo Pinto.
  10. I'm getting an impression of basic/molting Laughing Gull
  11. I'd say Great Black-backed Gull. With the caveat that I'm anything but a gull expert, I'd guess probably a recently molted youngish bird that still has retained some dark on the bill.
  12. Broad-winged is correct! Swainson's have primary feathers that extend beyond the tail and Red-shouldered have pale markings on the primaries and secondaries. The tail pattern is also distinctive here, so it's good that you included that second photo.
  13. I'm assuming this is in NC, where other Myiarchus flycatchers are uncommon?
  14. Hey man, there's nothing wrong with admiring a bird's gams. This bird never skips leg day and should be proud of its legs.
