  1. Interesting. Most of them I see are totally red, without any of the brown patches. Or maybe I don't notice it as much as I try to take pictures from the front ? Either way, thanks for the clarification!
  2. With all the talks in the media about the half male and half female cardinal, I was wondering about this bird. I've seen it multiple times around my feeder here in Virginia, but was finally able to take a picture today. Is it transforming from juvenile to adult? Or winter to summer coat transition?
  3. At first I just thought - yellow bird - must be a gold finch. But looking closely on my computer I'm ruling that out based on the beak alone. Now we're in the world of warblers. My best guess at this point is a pine warbler? Seen on 2/10/2019 in ventral Virginia. Thanks for your help!
  4. Appreciate the quick response! Also thanks for pointing out the distinguishing features. I'm still in the early phases of birding, so that helps a lot! Actually I'm trying to catalog my collection in Lightroom, so I might be back with more soon ?
  5. According to the American Museum of Natural History field guid, this could be an immature White-Crowned Sparrow, but according to Peterson's it could also be an adult Field Sparrow. Which is it? Seen on November 14th in central Virginia. Thanks for the help!
  6. Can't help with the ID, but great pictures. Thanks for sharing!
  7. Just seen this while getting ready to cook dinner in central Virginia. My guess is juvenile Cooper's Hawk? What do you say?
  8. Yes! I guess that makes sense, given the rust color. Not sure why I skipped over the red shouldered... probably because the tail in the illustrations I compared it to did't quite makes sense to me. Either way, thanks for the ID!
  9. Hello everyone, I'm new to the group trying to get some clarification on recent sightings. I can't decide between a female Merlin or a Broad-Winged Hawk. This was taken today in central Virginia. Thanks a lot for your help! Martin
