  1. Yeah, they don't look like the Corona type.
  2. These shots were taken on 6/29/2019 - mid-afternoon from my front porch here in San Antonio. It was a small hawk and based upon reference pics from Merlin, I believe this to be a broad-wing. I looked at the wing shape, the dark tips on the secondaries, the lighter patagial (I was looking for the darker shade for red shouldered), and the tail banding.
  3. Thanks very much folks. I just hadn't seen this behavior. Now that I know they are sunning themselves,,maybe I should put some sunscreen out for them 🙂
  4. I'm no expert, but I'll give it a shot. The wingbar doesn't coincide with yellow-breasted chat, from the photos references I looked at. I could see Pine Warbler. But, I would wait to get a better informed opinion for a second than mine. I myself am still learning.
  5. I know these guys white wing doves, but I hadn't seen this behavior until about a week ago when we had three of them down in the yard doing this. I just happened to come out with my camera when I noticed these same two doing the same thing on the tree. Reminds me of a broken wing type of behavior, but I hadn't seen this in doves around here in San Antonio,
  6. Curly, Larry and Hey Moe!
  7. This was this evening at the local park near my neighborhood here in San Antonio. I am fairly sure Eastern Phoebe, but not 100% due to a few differences that I haven't seen in the EPs I have seen so far. The starkness of the wing bars and in the one series of shots, the darker/dirty look on the throat area. This is all of the same bird.
  8. I am undecided about these birds. This was this past Sunday (2 June) at Lackland AFB here in San Antonio. I believe these two birds are of the same species. They were close together in nearby trees, and the yellow eyebrow is very similar. Only one shot of the first bird, but a series of the next one.
  9. Thanks folks. Much appreciated. I was still thinking Red-shouldered myself, but just wanted to get confirmation because of the paler appearance of the head.
  10. Thanks folks. Very much appreciated.
  11. Researching a little further, and based on Birding Duo's input, I think I can safely say it is one of three: either a Great Crested, Brown Crested or Ash-throated Flycatcher. What it shows in Merlin for territory, best bets are either Great Crested or Ash-throated. I have seen a Great Crested Flycatcher recently, but not at this location. This location is heavily wooded within somewhat of a canyon setting. Juniper trees and other trees as well.
  12. Thanks very much folks. I have some checklist to go back and correct. I had come to the conclusion that it was probably a juvenile, but was thinking possibly red-shouldered. Still learning and having fun doing it.
