  1. This fellow was perched in the top of the tree in my neighborhood here in San Antonio. It was mid-afternoon. There were two of them, but the photos of the second bird didn't come out clear enough. At a distance, I thought it was a Mockingbird based on the size and the lighting (initially only could see silhouette). But as I got close enough to see it clearly in my camera, I noticed the yellow head. Any ideas?
  2. Hello, Still learning about how to identify our friends. This one has been puzzling me, especially since I am unsure of the differences between a House Finch or Purple Finch enough to tell them apart. I have been calling these guys House Finches, but this one appears to be so much brighter red and more of it than the others in the small flock that comes to my feeder a couple times a day here in San Antonio.
  3. Thanks. I was just lucky and still new to this.
  4. Took this a couple of weeks ago on my first outing. Turned a corner at a fence line and there he was.
  5. Sorry little late in replying back. The location was here in San Antonio, TX along a green belt area in our neighborhood. Our green belts basically are creek beds that really only have water when it rains. The houses back the green belt areas, which is where I saw this guy perched on top of a chimney vent.
  6. Thank you very much. I think I will get better at IDing the birds as I learn more. You help is very much appreciated.
  7. Thank you very much. My apologies, in San Antonio, TX.
  8. This fellow came flying over on my morning walk. Lucky enough to get a shot in the small window of time. Not the best pic, but think it may be a Red Tail Hawk.
  9. Initially thought this may have been a mockingbird until I was able to get a little closer and snap the pics. The breast pattern caught my eye. Sorry not the best pics to try to ID from.
  10. Snapped these on my morning walk. Don't know how to describe it for my bird app. The yellow markings are what caught my eye.
  11. At first thought this was a kinglet, until I got home and downloaded the photos. This bird seems to match photos I took previously of a OC Warbler in the tree in my front yard. These pics were taken in the green belt behind our neighborhood on my morning walk.
  12. Snapped this little guy on my walk this morning. Still learning how to ID.
  13. Snapped this pic this morning on my walk through the greenbelt out behind our neighborhood. It was perched on top of a chimney. The orange/red eyes and spotted breast struck me. Also, there appears to be a triangle shaped pattern on the breast also.
  14. Shot this photo of this little guy in the tree of my front yard, San Antonio, Tx. in the late morning. New to birding so still trying to learn the art.
  15. Thank you all. I am new to this and just starting to try to learn the art of birding.
  16. Shot these photos in the am on 30 Dec 2018, San Antonio, TX. Not sure of the species. I have compared to the doves we have in the area and against pictures - doesn't match any of the doves. I know the pics may not have much to go by. I did see what I believe to be the same bird today in a different area with what seemed to be red/orange eyes/eye rings. Didn't get a pic, it flew off before I could snap a pic.
