  1. I would like help with two birds. Let me start with the easier one: 1) Blackpoll warbler? Based on Two white wingbars & streaked upperparts. The legs are not very orange, but I guess that's okay? 2) This one was very confusing. It was staying close to the ground, and was exhibiting behaviors of a young bird or a weak bird. Could this be another Blackpoll warbler, based on orangish legs and streaked upperparts (may be)? The wingbars are not bold though. Also I don't see blurry streaking on the flanks. So my second guess is a Pine warbler.
  2. 1) Blackpoll warbler? [Based on white wingbars, light-colored legs, a faint eyeline] 2) Pine warbler? [Based on broken eyering, two white wingbars, darker legs] 3) Another pine warbler? [Based broken eyering, and wingbars. I contemplated on a Blackburnian on the field, but I don't think it is one after reviewing the photos]
  3. It looks good for a Red-naped Sapsucker.
  4. I believe this is a Western Sandpiper. Its bill was longer than the other SESA with it. Can you confirm?
  5. I don't have any concrete reasons, but it just didn't seem right for a pine warbler. This one definitely had a bold white eyering (I know immature pine warblers also have it). And from what I recollect, it had no wing bars. I also recollect seeing a thin bill (it probably appears thick because of the way I took the photo). Similarly, I think the white undertail you see might be due to lighting issues. The other birders with me floated the possibility of a Tennessee warbler (However, I don't think it was). Not sure if it helps, but here are two more photos:
  6. Does this look like an orange-crowned warbler? The bird was yellow-olive overall, had a thin/pointy bill, had a white eyering (did not see if it was broken or not), and appears to have yellow undertail coverts (from the photos). Even by elimination, I am leaning towards an orange-crowned. What do you think?
  7. No wolves in this specific location. We did see a few from a lookout point (also a mother grizzly & 2 cubs), and then a few in Hayden valley (had better views here).
  8. With the IDs of these two birds I should be all set 🙂 1) A female ruddy duck? 2) Swainson's Hawk?
  9. Wow. It could be the same rock 🙂 It was taken on the road to Slough Creek campgrounds (in the Lamar Valley area). Here is the full photo for little more context:
