  1. Hi, and thanks in advance. I saw this bird at Holden Arboretum, in Kirtland, Ohio, at about noon today, diving continuously. Looking at photos, the closest I could come was a Red-breasted Merganser, but I'm not sure.
  2. This appears to be a young sparrow. Can you tell from these poor photos what species? Thanks in advance. Bob T.
  3. I saw two of these near a small lake at the Holden Arboretum, in Kirtland, Ohio about 11 a.m. on 20 March. They were feeding in the tall grass near the lake. Thanks in advance. Robert Titus
  4. I missed this on my earlier post (sorry) I saw 2 of these birds at Headlands State Park, Ohio today (3-17) at about 1 p.m. They flew from the dune grass, close to the lake (lake Erie), to a nearby tree as we approached. I've scoured Sparrow photos, and the closest I can come are Swamp Sparrows. The photos aren't great, but perhaps they will help. Thanks in advance. R. Titus

  6. Both birds are Juncos, I think, but in looking them up, I'm confused about the terminology (i.e. "Slate-colored" vs. Dark-eyed). Can you tell me which is which? (Sorry about the photo, but it's the best I could do with both birds at once.) 

     

    Thanks, Melierax929908556_Whatbird2019-01-16.thumb.jpg.d1fb71697424bbb7d695ded3c853d4a7.jpg

      Both are dark-eyed juncos; slate-coloreds are a subspecies. These are both slate-colored, female on the left.

  7. Thank you, Melierax. This same bird has visited a number of time in the last year and it's puzzled me. Even though I though it might be an anomaly, being a new birder, I wasn't sure.
