  1. Saw this woodcock along a berm on a park road. It looks like a young one, but I can't figure out whether this is characteristic behavior for a woodcock or is it injured. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Bob T. Woodcock, American, 2022-06-10, Best.m4v
  2. I'm having a difficult time telling whether this is Bushtit, Vireo, or Gnatcatcher, but the lack of an eye-ring and the larger beak seems to be more like a Bushtit's. These screenshots were taken yesterday and are from the bird cam near Fort Davis, Texas. Thanks in advance.
  3. Captured this screenshot today of West Texas bird cam. Have never seen snow at this bird cam, and it was quite busy there. Cannot ID this particular bird. Thank you in advance.
  4. Pine Siskin never occurred to me. They're somewhat uncommon in Ohio, where I live, although Brown Creeper did come to mind. Very confusing when the photo isn't a good one. Thank you all for your patience.
  5. I was watching the Cornell West Texas bird cam today and captured this screenshot. Is it possible that a Black-and white Warbler would feed from any sort of feeder?
  6. Took this photo (video clip) today in Chardon, Ohio. Can someone help ID this little bird? Thanks in advance.
  7. Thank you - that’s a great help. I used the iBird Pro app, and it showed the Broad-winged Hawk as a possibility. Other apps (Audubon, Merlin, Sibley) did not. Any comments on this discrepancy?
  8. Photo taken today in Willoughby, Ohio, 2 P.M. Bird was around 15 inches in height. Poor photo, but any help? Broad-winged, Maybe?
  9. I realize that this photo (iPhone SE) is not much to go on, but perhaps there's someone out there able to ID it. It was a large bird, about 18", perhaps immature. Location; Geauga County, Ohio, about 2:30 p.m. Thanks in advance. Bob T. Chardon, Ohio
  10. Saw this bird perched on deck railing this afternoon in Chardon, Ohio. Can't tell whether or not it's a Wood-Pewee, as it appears to have an eye-ring (or not). Anyone? Thanks in advance. Bob T.
  11. These were taken in Chardon, Ohio this afternoon. Because of what appears to be an all-black bill, I would guess an Eastern Phoebe, but the wing bars confuse me. Any help? Thanks in advance
  12. Haven't a clue what this little gray sparrow-like bird is. Video clip is not good, but any help? Thanks in advance. Bob T.
  13. Need to confirm this is a Yellow rump. Not a great pic. Thanks in advance.
  14. Just want to confirm that this is a Solitary Sandpiper. Taken in Burton, Ohio this morning on the Cuyahoga River. Thanks, Bob T.
  15. Thanks once again, akandula. More knowledge.
  16. This poor photo was taken in Chesterland, Ohio this morning. I don't know whether I was looking at a sparrow, a finch, a flycatcher, or none of the above. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance. Bob T.
  17. Thanks, akandula. In retrospect, I believe the Eatstern and the Eastern Towhee are closely related. Bob T.
  18. These unfortunate photos were taken in Burton Ohio on 5-2-20. The bird was in in a small tree next to grassy area singing his heart out. At first I thought it was a Bay-breasted Warbler, but the song didn't match ... it was more Towhee-like.
  19. Thanks, Connor ... sparrows are very difficult!
  20. These were taken in Chardon, Ohio, 2020-04-28 at 1630. Best I could do. The bright eye ring and gray stripe at back of head, and longish tail seem to match up with pictures of a Field Sparrow, but I realize it could also be a Chipping Sparrow.
  21. I live in Chardon,Ohio, and about noon, this bird showed up on our deck. At first I thought it was a juvenile Rose-breasted Grosbeak, as we had them here daily until a week-and-a half ago. But I don't think so. From online photos (iBird), it matches a "Black-headed female breeding" most closely. Is that possible? The photo is lousy, but it's the best I could do. Still, any chance someone could narrow it down??
  22. 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.
